The IN-Justice Equity Training Intensive (Calgary)
“Stage Left Productions, Third Way Theatre and Chromatic Theatre invite diverse agents of change to join us in an innovative, arts-based training intensive in equity intervention.
August 1 – 6, 2016
Calgary, AB Canada
$300 if registered before July 1; $350 thereafter (sliding scale & barters are available)
The IN-Justice Equity Training Intensive offers a rare and dynamic opportunity to recharge our passions, increase our capacity and strengthen our resolve.
This one-time only, open registration intensive…
- Immerses participants in Theatre of the Oppressed methods, as a unique form of embodied learning and sharing – one that equalizes the power imbalances that often stymie cross-cultural collaboration.
- Introduces a foundational equity framework that centers the bottom-up, earned knowledge of diverse peoples, results in a shared vocabulary and analysis, and offers up practical tools for confronting inequity.
- Provides accessible, step-by-step instruction in many Theatre of the Oppressed methods, including Image & Forum Theatre, Cops in the Head and Rainbow of Desire.
- Offers-up many practical applications on how to integrate Theatre of the Oppressed techniques and anti-oppressive practice into social justice initiatives.
- Attends to internal and external oppressions, as well as individual agency and structural-level interventions.
- Equips diverse agents of change to engage in intercultural solidarity, develop shared interests, and make collective impact.
