A Forward-Looking Solutions-Based Conversation with Chicago Arts Leaders and Organizers
Parent Artist Advocacy League of Chicago and Prop Thtr presented the conversation, How Your Theatre Can Become a More Equitable Employer of Parents and Caregivers livestreaming on the global, commons-based, peer-produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv on Tuesday 1 November 2022 at 4 p.m. PDT (San Francisco, UTC -7) / 6 p.m. CDT (Chicago, UTC -5) / 7 p.m. EDT (New York, UTC -4).

This will be a forward-looking, solutions-based conversation with Chicago arts leaders and organizers about concrete actions theatres of any size can take toward more parent-inclusive employment practices. Panelists will discuss steps their own companies are taking, informed by their lived experiences of being parent-artists in theatre.

This conversation is for anyone who wants to learn how to better support their parent and caregiver colleagues or advocate for themselves and their peers. We hope you'll tune in and learn about the work that PAAL is doing to make parent and caregiver inclusion a DEI imperative at every level of our industry.
