HOLDING SPACE for disabled & chronically ill opera artists in Canada
November 4, 2021
Loose Tea Music Theatre and Opera Mariposa are partnering with Tapestry Opera to hold a series of open conversations for disabled and chronically ill artists in the Canadian opera sector. Join us to network, foster dialogue and build community in a safe, supportive space – or share your thoughts anonymously ahead of time!
Who is Invited?
Canadian opera artists, arts workers and creators (whether at home or abroad) who identify as disabled/living with 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.
Who Should Step Back?
Non-disabled individuals, and professional company representatives. While we appreciate your allyship, our goal is to create a space where underrepresented artists feel they can speak openly about their experiences.
ACCESSIBILITY: Automatic captions provided; ASL interpretation available on request.
