The League is once again working with Keryl McCord of Equity Quotient to present a two day Erasing Racism workshop available for all member companies of the League. The aim of the workshop is to build a collective vision for a more just, equitable, more open and transparent, diverse and inclusive theatre community. Workshop attendees will:
– Fully comprehend how racial systems develop and a clear definition of racism, to further understand the difference between equity and equality
– Gain an understanding of the history, systems, policies, and practices that have resulted in exclusive, inequitable, and non-diverse spaces in all strata of our society including theatre in Chicago.
– Work together to create a vision for a healthy theater ecosystem in Chicago that is inclusive, values transparency, commits to the fullest expression of diversity in Chicago, values first voice in art making, and develops a framework of shared vision, values, and principles as tools to use in their work.
Please note that this is a two-day workshop and we expect everyone that RSVPs to attend both full days. This event is FREE, but space is limited to 50 people.
