Join the conversation as 4 prominent accent/language coaches of colour for Theatre, Film and TV discuss inclusion in accent training and coaching for IBPOC actors: Lisa Cromarty, Michelle Lopez-Rios, Joy Lanceta Coronel, and Alicia Richardson. Hosted by York faculty member Eric Armstrong, topics for discussion will include strategies to better serve actors-in-training from Indigenous, Black, Asian, Latinx, and other communities. How do we decolonize accent training and prepare students to tackle languages they may not know? Tune in as our panelists discuss the wisdom and tools they’ve gained along the way.
