Calling theatre designers and other visual artists interested in community-engaged facilitation!
Art & Design Online is a hands-on training workshop for theatre designers and other visual artists who are interested in facilitating community-engaged artistic processes, especially online. Taking place on Zoom, this free two-part workshop will explore:
- How to facilitate online artistic process where participants are meaningfully empowered to have creative voice within a collective context
- Creating processes that are dynamic, engaging, and grounded in anti-oppression frameworks
- How to curate materials and supplies for participants in ways that are accessible and budget-responsive
- Practical tools, strategies, and activities for online community-engaged arts
- Working across different design and visual arts media
What will you get?
- A free professional development opportunity in an affirming creative environment led by two highly experienced community-engaged design facilitators
- A participation honorarium of $100 ($25/hour x 4 hours)
- Support toward an accessible environment including ASL interpretation, captioning, etc.
We are particularly eager to offer this free, paid training opportunity to equity-seeking theatre designers and visual artists who are interested in facilitating projects in their own communities and/or communities in which they have long-term investment and relationships.
When is it?
This is a two-part workshop:
Part 1: June 8, 5:00pm-7pm EST
