Holding Space for Disabled & Chronically Ill Opera Artists in Canada: Session 3
Hosted by Opera Mariposa
Loose Tea Music Theatre and Opera Mariposa are excited to announce the third of four sessions in our #HoldingSpace series for disabled and chronically ill artists in the Canadian opera industry. Join us in a safe, supportive space to network, foster dialogue and build community, and to discuss ideas for actionable change.
The 'Holding Space' series is open to Canadian opera artists, arts workers, creators and students (whether at home or abroad) who identify as disabled/living with a disability or chronic illness. This includes artists with invisible disabilities or health conditions, including mental illness; neurodivergent artists; artists with undiagnosed disabilities; and artists who aren’t sure whether they’re “disabled enough” to participate.
Let's continue to work on #MakingOperaAccessible!
This 90-minute event takes place on Zoom with automatic captions; links will be sent by email before the event. ASL-English interpretation, sponsored by Tapestry Opera, is available upon request. Please send an email to email@example.com by Monday, January 17, 2022, with interpretation requests. Attendees are encouraged to feel comfortable turning their cameras on or off as they prefer, and to take breaks as needed.
