Centering: JUST, or What does a Just and Thriving theatre ecology mean to you?
"[By] removing competition and commercial hierarchy so that we are moving toward an understanding that we benefit from one another's work. Whether its across the field, across the country, no matter the size or scale of the work, there is an ecology to it." -Jennifer Wintzer
"I think that is a really beautiful and innovative idea and yet isn't that the basis of why we do what we do anyway?" -Rhiana Yazzie

The final two days of the 2020 Fall Forum welcomed all practitioners in the field. Amid a divisive election and the ongoing pandemics of COVID-19 and racism, we focused on connecting with and caring for each other. Our four plenary spaces featured generative and emergent conversations around four themes: Joy, Community, Accountability and finally answering the question, “What do we mean by Just & Thriving?” In these sessions, we’ll make space to discuss the foundation and practice of these themes, allowing for the smaller group connections and sharing that have always been a beloved part of our in-person gatherings. Through these conversations, we hope to collectively envision our way forward.
