This is a FREE kinetic, resource-sharing and networking event. You'll have ample room to be either introverted or extroverted, still or moving, busy or quiet.
DTRC / CRTD - Dancer Transition Resource Centre and CADA/West will provide you with an informative and thought-provoking environment in which to exchange ideas and information on topics of interest to you.
We know that several of you have been working on issues of affordable childcare, sexual harassment, decolonization, contracting and improving your lives as artists in Canada. CADA/West and the DTRC would like to learn from you more about how these things impact your lives and assess interest in the development of services that would be useful to you.
Should CADA/West administrate a childcare subsidy to our members who are parents? Should we be seeking out funds to develop a system for reporting and holding accountable individuals and institutions turning a blind eye to harassment? Do you have issues with the CADA contract template? Should we increase our work in Truth and Reconciliation?
The DTRC wants to learn more about the factors and circumstances that impact your work life. As we evaluate our programs and services designed to provide vital support through counselling and financial resources, we want to know if there are barriers to accessing them. What other kinds of support are needed to support the development of your professional life, both inside and outside of your dance work? How can we leverage our national network and relationships with organizations like CADA/West to provide sector-wide initiatives that make the dance industry safer and reflect a commit to zero-tolerance of harassment?
We want to find out more about your priorities as you’ve been addressing them in your artist lives and to share information about projects and initiatives that our members have undertaken. We invite you to help build programs and services that continue to help artists in expensive areas.
