Currently, self-identified culturally diverse women and non-binary people of colour hold only 3.7% of the artistic theatre leadership positions in Canada. The 3.7% Initiative aims to change that, one community at a time.
Join Nike Jonah as she uses the Creative Case approach to facilitate this workshop. We will seek to relocate conversations and policies around diversity and inequalities from the margins into the centre of key debates on how art is created, innovated, expressed, distributed, and consumed.
What does the workshop offer?
Diversification of leadership in Canada’s theatres is a critical next step in the evolution of a healthy and representative community. By attending this workshop, you will be able to demonstrate an understanding of relationships between diversity, inequality, and how this relates to the arts and culture sector.
We invite you to spend a weekend in Banff and learn techniques to build relationships and collaborate. This workshop will honour your authentic self as you practice pitching yourself and others, and role play ways to interrupt micro-aggressions and biased behaviours that adversely impact under-represented communities.
Who should apply?
Registration for this workshop is open to self-identified women of colour and non-binary people of colour who are involved in any capacity with live theatre.
Please note this program is not adjudicated;applicants will be accepted on a first come, first served basis.
