#JMKSpace: Exploring your own creative voice and your personal politics with Emma Callendar
How can we explore what kind of artist we are? Or what kind of artist we want to be? How can we put our ideas or politics into action so we actually walk the walk rather than just talking the talk? How do we set up the dynamic of our rehearsal room? How do we choose the stories we want to tell on stage? What questions or ideas do we want to challenge our audience with? How can we make the change we want to see through the work that we make, no matter how big or small? This session will look at how you can explore your own unique perspective as a director and manifest those ideas into action both in your process and your productions.
The session will take place 6:00 – 8:00pm on Thursday 1st July on Zoom.
