Open a Door
Block A is PTC’s open door to the writers in our community. From spoken word artists to actors, activists to designers, the folks in a Block A room bring masses of creativity to the table. They also bring the vulnerability it takes to try something new, to share something unformed, to be confused, to disagree – to make art together.
Your donation will open that door even wider, by helping us make the 2021-22 Block A season no-cost for all applicants. We will have 24 writers led by four mentors join us this season. PTC subsidizes the cost of the workshop, but we need your help to ensure we can offer a completely open-access workshop this fall and winter.
This year, PTC will offer anti-oppression resources to all participants to provide tools for working in intercultural, intersectional cohorts. We also provide all our Block leaders with tools for leading anti-oppressive writing workshops.
One spot in Block A is valued at $500. You can provide access to a single writer with your generous donation. And, every contribution makes a difference. As we work to find our way to a better future post-pandemic, we understand that financial resources are stretched. With your support, we can all empower writers to take their place on stage or online – wherever their voice carries them.
Some of our most dedicated donors are Block A alumni. In fact, one generous writer has sponsored spots in both the fall and winter editions of Block A. Will you join them and help the next generation of writers find their way into the theatre?
