Community Call-In: Navigating Race in Artistic Works

As teaching and training artists, how do we engage with creative works that explore issues of race and may also have personal triggers that offend? Many plays and musicals investigate racial themes that can affect us deeply. Is it better to remove these plays from our classrooms and performance? Can we illicit change through the stories we tell? How do we in professional training within an institution of learning investigate and interrogate these artistic works as a powerful tool to educate? 

Please join Tisch Drama Chair Rubén Polendo, Associate Chair Michael McElroy, and special guest Stefanie A. Jones for a conversation about navigating race in artistic works.

Pizza and soft drinks will be provided.

Hosted throughout the semester, Community Call-In invites the Tisch Drama community into conversation about timely issues, welcoming many voices and viewpoints.
