In August, I had the pleasure of moderating a series of three webinars. I finally have the videos edited and online.
In light of the current events regarding Covid-19 closures, financial strain on arts workers, racism, and harassments, Rocky Mountain Artists’ Safety Alliance, Colorado Theatre Guild, Phamaly Theatre Company, IDEA Stages, and the Stage Managers' Association hosted SAFER IN THEATRE LISTENING SESSIONS. These were moderated discussions on a variety of topics regarding safety that are directly affecting the theatre community throughout the U.S.. Topics addressed dealt with safety during Covid-19, safety for BIPOC folks, and safety regarding sexual harassment.
Here are embedded videos of the Safer In Theatre Listening Sessions
