Should I Stay or Should I Go? A Micro-Conference for the Indie Arts Sector
Friday, January 22
2 – 5pm
Presented in partnership with The Creative Innovation Studio at Ryerson University.
Hosted by Steven Smits, Toronto Fringe Board Member, and Associate Producer at Volcano Theatre.
Join us for a frank and forward-thinking conversation on the future of arts work in a pandemic and post-pandemic era. In this collaborative session, Ryerson’s Creative Innovation Studio will guide participants through exercises to forecast and (re)imagine how theatre, performance, and live experiences must evolve in the coming months, years and beyond. The indie network has been severely impacted by the halting of public events and live theatre-making since March 2020. This event will provide a space for our community to connect and come together in a time where so many are operating in isolation.
How will our work come back? What new forms can it become? How might our sector evolve to support its creators and artists and workers, now and in the future? What are models that are sustainable long term, and can weather future storms? In the end, we will have laid out a collective charter to help us tackle the short-term and look ahead to the future.
