Presented by Megan Lewis
In times of crisis, such as our current global pandemic or the rising tide of antiracism protests, how can Musical Theatre as an artform, a practice, and a form of community-building respond? We will draw on historic and contemporary case studies from around the world: including HAIR!, RENT, District Six, and Hamilton. Come learn about how Musicals raise awareness about the pressing issues of our times. In this seminar, you will learn from the past to make change for the future. All artists and activists are welcome!
