At LTA/LA's first convening in 2013, legendary theatre artist, Diane Rodriguez, gave a rousing keynote to artists about the lessons she had learned along her own path. After losing Diane earlier this year to cancer, her family and friends will reflect on her wisdom and the urgency and relevancy behind her words for today. Diane was committed to creating an anti-racist inclusive movement that raised the voices of the marginalized and celebrated our uniqueness while at the same time explored our shared humanity. Join us for this celebratory free community gathering honoring her legacy of lessons.
