As we try to heighten BIPOC voices, experiences, and knowledge, PARC is delighted to offer to our membership a series of masterclasses with playwrights Bilal Baig (February 27th), Yolanda Bonnell (April 10th), and Carmen Aguirre (March 20); a workshop with Carmen Aguirre for BIPOC playwrights only (March 26-28); and a panel discussion with Yolanda, Carmen and PARC Artistic Associate Santiago Guzman (May 15)!
Yolanda’s masterclass will touch on the notion of a play, discussing dramatic structure, and how her work as a playwright aims to decolonize traditional approaches to storytelling. This masterclass will take place on Saturday, April 10th, from 2-4 pm AST.
The panel discussion with Yolanda, Carmen, and myself will examine writing BIPOC characters when you are not BIPOC, the best way to approach consultations, applying cultural sensitivity in writing, and more! It will take place during our 2021 Playwrights Retreat, on Saturday, May 15th, from 7-9 pm AST.
