Safer/Braver Spaces

Tickets $16.50

The Intersection: Safer/Braver Spaces is a one-day conference of networking, skill-building and fun for artists and arts professionals under 30. Now in it’s third year, #IntersectionTO aims to directly address issues that are affecting young artists today and provide them the tools to thrive.

The 2017 Intersection will focus on the idea of Safer/Braver Spaces, examining political and artistic tools that empower young artists to pursue creativity and experimentation in their careers, also addressing how to practically support themselves. This conference will be an accessible and inclusive space to voice experiences in theatre, meet future collaborators, and critically discuss what skills or resources young creators need as they develop their careers as professional artists. This initiative is devoted to supporting the future of Toronto performance.

The day starts off with a meet-and-greet for young artists, with representatives from community organizations including: CSARN, Intermission, Spider-Web Show, Kaha:wi Dance Theatre, Theatre Passe Muraille, and The Toronto Fringe Festival. The day continues with a choice of workshops in both artistic and practical skillsets.
