Diversity & the art on our stages
Uno Fest
  • Dates: May 23, 2017
  • Location: Intrepid Theatre Club
  • Door price: FREE
  • Duration: 75 minutes

In this open to the public forum, UNO Fest artists Pedro Chamale, Derek Chan and Adam Grant Warren (rice & beans theatre/Vancouver) host a panel discussion with local and UNO Fest artists on challenging the status quo of representation. What kinds of stories are being told, who is telling them and who is going to them?

Theatre has always had a profound way of creating a genuine place of making a connection. The panel will share their experiences, challenges and hopes of building a more diverse representation though the art on our stages.

How do we navigate diversity together in Victoria, in BC, with the rest of Canada? How do we make space for each other while also trying to be heard ourselves? This discussion is to facilitate dialogue through the gathering together of people with common interests. We hope you can join us to listen, observe and be a part of this vital discussion.
