Le 22e Festival Théâtre Action en Milieu Scolaire 2019 : Le feu sacré !


FTAMS 2019 : Le feu sacré !

Théâtre Action a le plaisir de vous convier à la conférence de presse d’annonce de la 22e édition de son Festival Théâtre Action en Milieu Scolaire (FTAMS). Le FTAMS est un événement d’envergure unique en son genre, qui convie annuellement les jeunes de la 9e à la 12e année issus d’écoles secondaires francophones de l’Ontario intéressés par le théâtre. La prochaine édition du Festival se tiendra du 25 au 27 avril 2019 à l’Université Laurentienne.

Le Festival accueillera cette année près de 400 participants, offrant une occasion de formation, de partage de connaissances et d’agréables moments de théâtre. Des souvenirs qui demeureront assurément gravés dans la mémoire des festivaliers !

Dans le but d’offrir un modèle chaleureux et inspirant aux festivaliers, Théâtre Action emploie, pour chaque édition du FTAMS, deux professionnels du théâtre franco-ontarien. Pour une deuxième année, le duo officiel de parrain et de marraine du FTAMS sera formé par Caroline Yergeau et Pierre Simpson, qui sont prêts à passer le flambeau à la prochaine génération de praticiens du théâtre.

La thématique du 22e FTAMS

À l’instar du feu sacré, les jeunes participants au FTAMS sont animés d’une énergie créatrice, grandissante et mouvante. Le FTAMS leur offre un environnement attirant et chaleureux.

Les participants sont alimentés par ce feu rassembleur dont la flamme peut être passée au suivant. Ainsi, ils portent fièrement le flambeau et ont le pouvoir de transmettre leur passion aux prochaines générations de festivaliers.”

Workshop: EQUITY! Critical Self-Care (Artists’ Health Alliance, Toronto)

Workshop: EQUITY! Critical Self-Care
APRIL 03, 2019
DANCE STUDIO, THE AL & MALKA GREEN ARTISTS’ HEALTH CENTRE, TORONTO WESTERN HOSPITAL | 4:00 – 6:00PM

WHAT’S THIS GOT TO DO WITH STRESS?
Using a health equity lens, we’ll explore shared sources of stress and how self-care practices can meaningfully support artists’ wellbeing in the context of precarious work and intersecting inequities. We’ll take a critical eye to self-care messaging that is geared towards self-sufficiency and productivity and come to understand self-care as health practices which foster greater control over our art and lives.

In this workshop, you can expect to:

  • Relate your own experiences as an artist to an equity-informed view of self-care
  • Create a personalized self-care template you can use to develop self-care practices, now and in the future
  • Exchange insight, experiences and stories with other participants (optional)

WHO IS FACILITATING?
Netta Kornberg is a published researcher and organizer who has worked internationally in adult education, health promotion and the arts. She is the Program & Education Coordinator at Artists’ Health Alliance. Always learning, Netta completed safeTALK Suicide Alertness and trains as an amateur boxer. She holds an MPhil. at the University of Cambridge.

STRESSED! SESSIONS
This workshop is part of the series “STRESSED! How to handle an artists’ life in 9 sessions”. All sessions take place on the 1st Wednesday of the month, 4-6pm, at The Al & Malka Green Artists’ Health Centre from September 2018 – May 2019.

Profile Highlight: FiXT POiNT

As ArtBridges’ Community-Engaged Arts Directory grows, we realize that it’s a bit overwhelming to read through all of the profiles. We’re hoping that by occasionally highlighting some profiles on our blog, you may learn about an initiative that you may not have initially seen in the directory. Also, if you know of a Canadian community-engaged arts for social change initiative that isn’t in our directory, but should be, please let us know! We love and need your input/feedback in building this resource! -Lisa, Content Coordinator at ArtBridges.

“Founded in 2006 and incorporated as a not-for-profit organization in 2011, FiXT POiNT is a Toronto-based arts & media company with national reach. To date we’ve interviewed over 3000 Canadians from every province and territory in almost 200 communities in our storymobiles (recording studios on wheels). We have aired dozens of audio stories on CBC (Fresh Air, Podcast Playlist, Holiday Programming etc.), edited and posted hundreds of oral histories on our storymap and recently produced two seasons of a TV/Web Series for TVO.

Tilescapes Opening Exhibition (Jumblies Theatre, Toronto)

“In Fall 2018 ceramics artist, Parker Dirks, came weekly to The Ground Floor and worked with our artists and community participants to create ceramic tiles expressing landscapes mingling fantasy, memory and local surroundings.

These turned out so intricately and magnificently, that we have invited Parker back to finish the project through a residency this February at The Ground Floor.

Inspired by the tiles, Alex Eddington is creating collaborative vocal music and ambient soundscape created by ceramic fragments with our all-ages, all-abilities community choir, the Gather Round Singers, directed by Shifra Cooper, with accompanist Daev Clysdale.

Other Jumblies artists and associates – including Tijana Spasic, Jamie Oshkabewisens and Michelle Silagy – have been playing with ways to respond to and animate the tiles through sound, movement, storytelling, visual arts and live feed projections.

The opening of the Tilescapes will be an exhibition and performance event, and is FREE to the public.”

Webinar – Evaluative thinking: Building Cultures of Learning (Ontario Trillium Foundation)

“Join the Ontario Trillium Foundation for an online workshop with Julie Witmer, evaluation coach.

Is your organization looking to learn, reflect and adapt on a more frequent and timely basis? If so, join our online workshop with Julie Witmer on evaluative thinking!

Typically, organizations have used evaluation as an occasional management or accountability exercise. However, incorporating evaluative thinking into your day to day work leads to more meaningful learning cultures given the complex environments and pace of change most organizations operate in.

This workshop will introduce the concept of evaluative thinking and will be both theoretical and practical. The theoretical component will provide a background on evaluative thinking and some key concepts. Participants will also engage in practical exercises to assess the readiness and need for organizational evaluative thinking, as well as tools to help put these concepts into practice.”

For more information and to register for this webinar, visit the OTF’s eventbrite page.
