A chance for IBPOC Theatre students from Canada to meet one another and receive advice from experienced IBPOC artists
About this Event
Calling all IBPOC recent theatre graduates, students graduating this year and those entering their final year of study! You’re invited to an (online) IBPOC Theatre Grad Fair from 1:00-3:00 pm EDT on May 3! There, you’ll have an opportunity to meet with other IBPOC students from across the country and hear from experienced IBPOC artists on the transition from post-secondary theatre education to the professional realm.
The event will open with a round-table conversation with four artists, hosted by an IBPOC theatre leader, after which you’ll be invited to move into smaller break-out rooms for more focused conversations about specific career paths. Break-out rooms will be led by two artists with experience in a particular discipline, e.g. playwriting, directing, acting, producing, dramaturgy/criticism, production/design, and PR/publicity. One of the rooms will focus on the first year after leaving a post-secondary theatre program.
Artists include: Nina Lee Aquino, Lisa Karen Cox, Miriam Fernandes, Jeff Ho, Jordan Laffrenier, Shaista Latif, Owais Lightwala, Omari Newton, Matthew MacKenzie, Erin Macklem, Davinder Mahli, Sanskruti Marathe, Aidan Morishita-Miki, Marilo Nuñez, Tarndeep Pannu, Malina Patel, Luke Reece, Jamie Robinson, Quelemia Sparrow, Tanisha Taitt, and Syrus Marcus Ware.
WHEN: May 3, 2021, 1:00-3:00 EDT
**You will be sent a Zoom link for the IBPOC Grad Fair on the morning of the event itself, May 3**
