Let’s talk about how we talk about money

Thursday 15 April 2021

Producer Hub presented the conversation Economic Transparency in the Commercial Theatre with their series Producing Ethically in 2020 2021 livestreaming on the global, commons-based, peer-produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv on Thursday 15 April 2021 at 5 p.m. PDT (San Francisco, UTC -7) / 7 p.m. CDT (Chicago, UTC -5) / 8 p.m. EDT (New York, UTC -4).

Let’s talk about money. Specifically, let’s talk about how we talk about money. It’s always complicated, but the past year has made us all reevaluate how we approach and talk about financial models in the commercial theater. What is clear in our fight for antiracist and decolonized futures is that economic justice must be prioritized. That is a huge undertaking, but what can bring hope to us all is that integrating economic transparency into our practice can be our most trusted entry point. Let’s unpack the good, the bad, and the ugly of financial models in commercial theater -- what works, what doesn’t, and what needs to change in the future. What does it look like to embed transparency at every step of the way? In this webinar we will be joined by BIPOC leaders in the industry forging new structures and systems of accountability to aid us in this vulnerable and necessary work!
