#UrgentExchange at NSTF 2017 is a partnership between Toronto Fringe & Generator, at Theatre Passe Muraille.
During NSTF we are co-hosting two Urgent Exchanges on important and timely issues for indie artists. To ensure we are discussing the things you want to talk about, we crowdsourced one of the topics using the hashtag #UrgentExchange. This is a free event. You can attend in person or participate in the conversations through the hashtag and via Periscope.
Urgent Exchange #2: THE WHITE GUY SHUFFLE - CHANGING HIRING PRACTICES IN CANADIAN THEATRE
Sunday Jan 15th 2:00pm-3:30pm
Theatre Passe Muraille, 16 Ryerson Ave
This past year over half a dozen Artistic Director jobs were up for grabs across Canada. While many were excited at the chance to finally diversify the leadership of some of our country's most recognizable institutions, all of the positions were filled by white men. How can we influence boards and hiring committees to change homogenous hiring practices? Come participate in a community conversation that will examine the mechanics of how these decisions are made and strategize how the community can be of influence.
