Community Conversations

The time we’ve all been spending away from our regular lives has given us a chance to reflect. The theatre community, like the world at large, is undergoing a huge shift, and we’re starting to have new conversations in forums we’ve never had before. Now more than ever is the time to keep the discussion going, and we want to bring that conversation to you.

In Community Conversations, we’ll be talking with Canadian arts workers about where theatre is currently at, and where it might go in the future. Each week we’ll share a discussion on a different topic, featuring special guests and moderated by our Outreach Co-ordinator Deivan Steele.

Our first conversation took place live during our NOPEning Night Event on July 15th, with Jeremy Smith and Myekah Payne discussing Henry Five, Driftwood, and theatre in general. Throughout the summer and into the fall, we’ll be sharing a new Community Conversation Video every Wednesday starting July 29th.

Read all about our Community Conversations guests here, and check back every Wednesday for more episodes!
