Description

BRAVE CREATIVE SPACES

A community discussion advocating for safety, responsibility and respect in theatre workspaces

As a community, we can create the change we seek for our industry.”- The national Council of Canadian Actors’ Equity Association

WHAT:
How can we do the brave work of advocating for safety, responsibility and respect in theatre workspaces?

Imago Theatre is hosting a Long Table discussion for Montreal’s English theatre community to advocate for the brave work of creating accountable and respectful theatre workspaces with zero tolerance for bullying, personal and sexual harassment, and abuse of any kind.

WHEN AND WHERE:
Sunday January 21 from 2-4pm at the Centaur Theatre

WHO:
Montreal’s English Theatre Community:
-Established and emerging theatre artists
-Theatre companies

Practices and policies which create safer spaces, promote consent, and respect individual boundaries will ultimately lead to more successful artistic processes and better theatre.”
- The Theatre Arts Collective for Consent and Respect

WHY?

The Brave Creative Spaces Long Table is a compassionate response to unacceptable work cultures in theatre and an unsilencing call to action to prioritize each other’s psychological and physical safety in order to thrive in a respectful work environment.

Goals for the Brave Creative Spaces Long Table:

-offer an opportunity for our community to come together and exchange through open dialogue
-begin a discussion around the values that define brave creative workspaces
-gain a better understanding of what defines harassment and abuse of power
-create vocabulary and learn best practices that can help us deal with difficult situations
-inspire individuals and companies to create in an environment that fosters trust

We encourage you to continue the conversation around the values that define brave creative spaces by using the hashtag #bravecreativespaces on social media before, during and after the Long Table discussion.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
