The Second City Training Centre 2018 Youth Advisory Committee
Emergence 2.0 is a two-part event that will consist of the following:
- Advocating for Yourself: an open panel discussion for emerging artists
- Coffee Dates: one-on-one mentorship coffee sessions with an artist
Advocating for Yourself - Our panel discussion will consist of three artists offering their insights and knowledge on the different ways to advocate for yourself for a career in theatre. This will include advocating in terms of equity, representation, contracts and negotiations, and more.
Coffee Dates will allow each young artist to select a mentor of their choice on a first-come, first-served basis. Each will get 20 minutes to connect and speak to their selected mentor. Mentors will come from various artistic backgrounds within the theatre industry, including: directors, actors, creators, playwrights, producers, designers, stage managers and more. Community Building exercises will be held for artists while they are not speaking with a mentor.
Dinner will be provided for participants.
