Truth and Reconciliation Through Theatre: We Are All Treaty People
November 18-20 | Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity
Theatre Alberta, in partnership with Quest Theatre and Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, is offering Truth and Reconciliation Through Theatre: We Are All Treaty People — a master class for drama / theatre educators led by Troy Emery Twigg, Artistic Director of the Making Treaty 7 Cultural Society.
Performing arts educators will be guided through the creation process of Calgary’s ground-breaking production of Making Treaty 7 and discuss its impact on audiences and artists. Mr. Twigg will provide resources for connecting educators to their local Indigenous communities, including treaty experts, elders, historians, and artists. Participants will be empowered with tools and exercises to help their students learn and express their understanding of their local treaty, First Nations’ relationship to traditional lands, and the content of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
TUITION for this 3-day master class is $350
FULL MEAL PLANS at Banff Centre are ~$40/day
SHARED ROOMS are ~$35/person/day
PRIVATE ROOMS are ~$65/person/day
Current Theatre Alberta members in financial need are eligible to apply for financial assistance. Deadline for scholarships has been extended to October 17, 2016.
