Workshop (Edmonton): Nextfest Diversity in the Arts Workshop – Nextfest Arts Company

Calling all arts advocates, allies and anyone interested in learning about equity and diversity in the arts!

NEXTFEST ARTS COMPANY is thrilled to announce our Diversity in the Arts Workshop as part of Nextfest 2017, with support from Theatre Alberta’s Workshop by Request program.

Join Gina Puntil (Work Plays Schools Program, ArtEquity2016) and Jenna Rodgers (Chromatic Theatre, CCEDA) in exploring how inequities – both visible and invisible – affect our theatre practices.

This full-day workshop will engage both your mind and body. Starting from individual and moving through to the societal, we will provide you with some tools and strategies to address, assess and disrupt inequity in your personal practice, creative work and in society as a whole.

When: Monday, June 5, 2017 10:00 am- 4:00 pm.
Where: Roxy on Gateway Theatre.
Cost: Free for Emerging Artists.

This workshop is open to all emerging artists of any discipline; artists do not have to be currently producing/performing at Nextfest to participate in the workshop. If the participant is not currently an artist in Nextfest, they will be made an honorary one so you can join us for the festival!

Limited space available. Interested attendees are asked to register by email with the subject line “Diversity in the Arts Workshop” to Festival Director, Ellen Chorley at

The email should clearly state:

  • Name
  • Contact Information
  • Background of your chosen artistic field
  • Your reason(s) for wanting to participate in this workshop
