Indigenous Playwrights Circle
Gordon Tootoosis Nikaiwin Theatre and Saskatchewan Playwrights Centre have partnered to offer an Indigenous Playwrights Circle on the last Sunday of every month, from 1:00 to 4:00. We will meet in room 727 of the Bessborough Hotel Sunday January 26th.
Open to Indigenous playwrights of all levels, the program creates an encouraging atmosphere for participants to grow as dramatists. Please consider joining us. For more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Women and Femme Folk Playwrights Circle
The next circle will meet Tuesday, February 6th from 7:00 to 9:00 downstairs at the Francis Morrison Library.
The Women and Femme Folk Playwrights Circle gives women and any femme-identifying or non-binary person in the LGBTQ community an opportunity to meet in a safe environment to create text based performance and theatre work.
This member-inspired, peer-driven group meets on the First Tuesday of each month in the basement of the Francis Morrison Library, downtown Saskatoon. The group will have a guest facilitator at each meeting so that all perspectives can be honoured. Members are encouraged to use these meetings to share their work, discuss challenges, and share ideas in a safe and supportive environment.
For more information please contact Clare at email@example.com.
Saskatoon Playwrights Circle
The circle will meet this coming Monday from 7:00 to 9:00 in room 727 of the Bessborough.
This member-inspired, peer-driven group meets on the third Monday of each month at the SPC’s Saskatoon office. With no dramaturge in the room, members are encouraged to use these meetings to share their work in a convivial, supportive environment.
Members interested in joining will be added to a mailing list, and an email will be sent out in advance of meetings to determine who will be attending and reading work that month.
For SPC members in Regina and area, a similar group not connected with the centre meets in that city as well; contact us if you’d like to get in touch with them. Contact andrew@saskplaywrights for more information.
