In the spotlight at PTC:
As a precaution in light of rapidly developing measures to limit the spread of COVID-19 in our community, our office will be closed until further notice. PTC staff are working remotely and some of our programs and workshops will proceed virtually. We are sending much love and compassion to our community. We are compiling an ongoing list of resources to help you through this.
Our workshop series is back for 2020! Led by PTC staff, these workshops will help hone your skills and move you deeper into your process. Whether you are an actor, producer, playwright, or all three, there’s a workshop that will inspire you, engage you, and give you some practical skills to move your practice forward.
PTC, in partnership with the GVPTA (Greater Vancouver Professional Theatre Association) asked María Escolán to reflect on her experience participating in Coyuntura 2020: An International Latinx Theatre Gathering. Coyuntura was sponsored by the Canadian Latinx Theatre Artist Coalition (CALTAC) and SFU Woodward’s Cultural Programs (SFUW).
Our playwrights are working on some great projects.
DEAF ARTISTS and stakeholders: On March 24th, the Creative Users Projects team (Lindsay Fisher, Emily Servais, Margaret Lam, Chelsea Jones and @Sara Dunn) met with a group of Deaf artists and stakeholders to have a conversation about the challenges that artists are facing during COVID-19 and what the immediate needs and opportunities are going forward.
