Who is a Monster? What makes a Monster? Am I a Monster? #MeToo What next?
Our news feeds and social media have been flooded with how women, men and gender non-conforming folk are treated in our workplaces. New accusations, and firings, are happening almost daily. You tweet #IBelieveYou, but are you wondering if you’ve ever crossed a line? Are you unsure what to do #AfterMeToo? Is #YesAllWomen making you wonder what you aren’t seeing?
Join #UrgentExchange on SATURDAY, JANUARY 6 at THEATRE PASSE MURAILLE (16 Ryerson Ave) from 1:00-3:30 PM for an afternoon of learning and unlearning about Toronto’s live performance workplace through eight different models for change. Come to be heard or to listen. Together we will come up with solutions and strategies for transforming how we make work together and the spaces where art happens.
Presenters: Pippa Feinstein, Sedina Fiati, Thalia Kane, Scott Emerson Moyle, Jeff Perera, Nikki Shaffeeullah, Brook Thorndycraft, and the JONNO team. Counsellor on site: Alexa Dyer. More details here.
#WhoIsAMonster is one of two #UrgentExchange conversations happening at this year's Next Stage Theatre Festival. We're starting on Thursday, January 4 from 7:00-9:00PM with UrgentExchange at NSTF: Desiring Diversity, but who can afford to work for free?
In partnership with The Toronto Fringe Festival and Next Stage Theatre Festival, we host #UrgentExchanges on important and timely issues for indie artists. These are free events to attend in person and everyone is invited to participate in the conversations leading up to, during and afterwards through the hashtag and via Periscope through @GeneratorTO. Be part of the exchanges that engage artists from coast to coast debating indie arts issues!
The first portion of the event will have chairs set up lecture-style; mobility devices will be accommodated. There will be a live video stream via Periscope and speakers will be miked. For the next portion, people will be circulating throughout various locations. Some of these locations require stairs. If you have any concerns, please contact us and we will make sure that what is of interest to you is set up in an accessible location. More info, including entrances, washrooms and assistive devices at http://passemuraille.ca/access-at-tpm.
