I can’t, I have kids! How to make art while parenting

A panel conversation for artist-parents who want to speak frankly about the challenges of making art while raising kids. We will also share ideas about changes we can implement as a community to support all theatre-makers with familial obligations and commitments that side-line them from the theatre process.

Featuring panelists Naima Yetunda Ince, Susannah Hough, Candace Hescock, and Tamara Kissane

Functional Feedback: Getting what you need

Artists, have you experienced “constructive criticism” that ultimately held your creative work back rather than moving it forward?  There’s another way to do feedback! 

Join Tamara Kissane and Mara Thomas for a two hour introduction to Functional Feedback!

The Functional Feedback workshop is for artists who desire useful feedback that propels their new work forward. 
*Take ownership of your development process.
*Control critique while your work is in progress.
*Learn to manage the feedback conversation, who to have in the room and why, how to set feedback goals and come out the other side feeling inspired.

NOTE: Your work will not be assessed or critiqued in this session. We focus on HOW the feedback process can serve you as you develop your material.
