The Artistic Self

Dear <<First Name>>,

Our next Professional Workshop is happening on June 13th with Tawiah Ben M'Carthy and Philip Geller!

This workshop focuses on developing and sustaining self within an artistic practice, to better understand how to come into relationship with community. Through decolonizing theatre methodology and expressions of Philip and Tawiah’s unique artistic practice, the participants will be introduced to tools and resources to ground their process in the creative self. This workshop is suitable for all artists looking to engage with new processes of creation.

See you on June 13th from 1PM - 4PM! Plus, be sure to read on for other exciting programming coming up this month.
