2023 Global Majority Intimacy Conference

Intimacy Coordinators of Color announces the first annual Global Majority Intimacy Conference, creating in partnership with No Dream Deferred NOLA. The conference begins with online programming from February and concludes with a three-day in-person gathering of intimacy professionals, advocates, and leading voices in educational and professional theatre, live performance, and film and TV industries.

The 2023 conference is hosted by No Dream Deferred NOLA at the André Cailloux Center for Performing Arts and Cultural Justice, 2541 Bayou Rd, New Orleans, Louisiana, 70119. In a world first, members of the Global Majority are invited to uplift, amplify, and assess the specific needs of artists and intimacy professionals from ethnic or racialized backgrounds.

The first Global Majority Intimacy Conference is focused on the following concepts, ideas, and actions:

  • To serve as an informative and alliance-building gathering place for likeminded and globally oriented intimacy professionals, theatrical artists, and filmmakers.
  • To share globally minded intimacy innovation and cutting-edge, inclusive principles of accountability and acceptance.
  • To bring Global Majority voices to the forefront of the conversation about our bodies, minds, and experiences.
  • To deepen alliances with social justice, transformative justice, disability justice, and technology experts on the expansion of creative brave space in the arts.
  • To form regional groups for camaraderie, information-sharing, and employment networking.
  • To establish allied guidelines for working as an intimacy professional on productions with members from the Global Majority.
