The Staging Our Histories team is very excited to announce that prominent local journalist and broadcaster Adrian Harewood will join us as our moderator and host on May 31st, 2015. Mr. Harewood will facilitate short talk-back sessions between the audience and performers that encourage contemplation and active discussion regarding the themes and questions raised on stage during the evening.
Audience members and performers are invited to a reception after the event to informally continue the discussion!
If you want to share our stage, submit your performance proposal by January 9th, 2015. Storytellers, dancers, musicians, playwrights, filmmakers, and poets are all encouraged to submit. We are looking for diversity in both subject matter and performance styles, and pieces that will catalyze a greater understanding of how we remember, forget, and tell stories to make history. Get all the details and the proposal guidelines here.
If you are more interested in securing a spot in our audience, more information will be coming in the new year regarding tickets!
The co-directors of Staging Our Histories would like to thank Adrian Harewood for joining us for our first year, and for continuing to be an advocate and supporter of social conscience and culture in the Ottawa community.
