The Advocators: Forging Paths to Better Pay! A Panel Discussion

We know that so many of us working in theatre are passionate about our work. We also depend on our employment to help sustain our lives in a city that is more expensive than ever before. Though many institutions face financial challenges, implementing more equitable compensation models is in all of our best interest. This panel is an opportunity to listen to and learn from freelance artists and workers who are advocating for pay equity and new ways to implement change. We hold this space to uplift these advocates, to discuss accountability, and to learn how individuals and organizations can work together to better support a thriving theatrical ecosystem.

Programming included panel discussions, workshops, mixers, and roundtable conversations. This multi-day event is an opportunity for collective learning, relationship building, solution sharing, and, perhaps most importantly, joyful social events!
