Lucky for you, there many creative and innovative ways to make a living in the theatre industry! From theatre writing, to dramaturging, administration, directing, performing, and more: you can translate your passion into something only you can do.

In this interactive workshop, participants should expect to learn how to formulate a brief artistic statement to share with others, learn the basics of self advocacy/business practice as an artist, and be prepared to give and receive feedback from other participants.
