Intersection-2017-logo-2#IntersectionTO

The 2017 Intersection presented in partnership with Native Earth Performing Arts at Daniels Spectrum is all about Safer/Braver Spaces. From being empowered in auditions, to financial management to self-care The Intersection will focus on the political and artistic goals that matter to young artists as well as the practical matters of how to make and sustain a life in the arts today. This event will be a space for young artists to voice their experiences in the professional theatre arts and critically discuss what skills or resources they need as they develop their careers as professional artists. This initiative is devoted to supporting the future of Toronto performance  - all for $16.50!
