As a community of artists, we are all in this together. So, as individuals how are we advocating for our peers to build up this community as a whole? How can we become a community of peer advocacy as a way of breaking industry norms and systematically oppressive cycles? Jerrell L. Henderson, Theatre Director/Puppeteer/Professor/Archivist and (DG) Board Member, and Brey Ann Barrett, Director/Producer/Dramaturg and (DG) Director of Programming, will guide discussion in a large group and one on one breakout rooms to offer tools such as creating models for making introductions to others and their work in person and on social media platforms. These simple tools can get you started on your journey to becoming a peer advocate for your fellow artistic makers.
