In the current climate of defining and defending safer spaces in the cultural sector, we invite you to a gathering of artists discussing the challenges and tools they use inside the working environment of a career in the studio.
Intentionally Healthy: Working Dynamics in Creative Spaces Nov 6, 5–7pm @ Left of Main. Please register, so that we can plan refreshments and such.
Hosted by director and dramaturg Heidi Taylor (Playwrights Theatre Centre) and Jessica Wadsworth (CADA/West), in partnership with Dumb Instrument Dance as part of Public and Private, Intentionally Healthy is a conversation with artists about creating art within both hierarchical relationships and shared leadership collaborations. How do we navigate cultural or socio-economic privilege and respond to changing notions of who is responsible for what?
Now, more than ever, the intimate space of the studio is opened up to generational differences, intersectional feminist frameworks and the rejection of a status quo approach to how we work.
You can join the conversation in both public and private ways, with no obligation to speak. We welcome your thoughts, experiences, suggestions and hopes for creating art that values those who made it.
This event is free and open to all, refreshments provided. Please register so that we know how many people will be in attendance.
Please see the FB event for accessibility and other venue info.
