The Theatre Communications Group (TCG) has launched Theatre for Activism (T4A), a three-part series of gatherings to strengthen care, share practices, and forge connections between current theatre activists and those just beginning this work. The first part of the T4A series, Rest Up, will take place on April 27-28, 2023, from 12 pm to 5 pm ET, and will focus on prioritizing rest and care.
The gathering will prioritize the care networks of femme, Queer, TGNC, and disabled BIPOC, who have created powerful practices of care out of necessity. Participants will connect with the resources and relationships they need to strengthen their own care practices and support their colleagues and communities.
The sessions include topics such as care as a creative act, sound healing, addressing burnout, collective rest, shifting organizational policy and practice, cultivating rest practices as a freelance artist, self-care and self-love, care for caregivers, and a closing conversation on theatre, health, and liberation.
The conference aims to provide a platform for artists and activists to reflect on the importance of care as a creative act, share tools for building wisdom, and work on how to bring theory and practice into a continual praxis of liberation and life-giving transformation.
The T4A series is part of Accountability for Abundance (A4A), a national initiative of theatre activists committed to developing and sharing new practices that prioritize accountability and abundance for a more equitable theatre ecology. TCG is grateful to the A4A Advisory Council for their inspiration and support in launching this series.
The T4A series is a unique opportunity for the artistic community to connect and learn from each other, share experiences and practices, and strengthen the fight for a more equitable and just theatre industry. Register now and get ready to strengthen care, share practices, and forge connections with other theatre activists. Pricing is tiered, with free tickets available. Join Rest Up this Thursday and Friday!
