I AM THEATRE – FROM TCG
Cut and pasted from the Theatre Bay Area Weekly Update:
TCG needs your help to tell the story of theatre in America and they want to make sure our region is represented!
Some of you may have heard of the I Am Theatre video campaign that TCG launched in July. I Am Theatre captures pivotal moments in the lives of theatre-makers in an online video series. The series began on July 14 and continues each week for 50 weeks. This project hopes to raise awareness for the theatre field and champion the diverse group of people who are creating, supporting and engaging with theatre.
But 50 videos cannot tell the whole story! What if thousands of us shared our stories about why theatre matters, about why we do theatre, about the value of theatre in our lives and the communities we serve? The ultimate goal of this project is to raise national and international awareness of the depth, diversity and impact of the theatre field. To that end, we would love for you to consider making your own video and encourage your members to tell their stories. Showing that theatre is being made all over this country is a crucial part of this campaign and we want the Bay Area to be represented.
You can read more about the campaign and watch the videos that have been released so far at http://www.tcg.org/iamtheatre. To learn more about how to submit a video, click here. If you have any questions, please contact Ruth Eglsaer.
