TCG is offering dedicated support in navigating these opportunities to Black Theatres, Indigenous Theatres, and Theatres of Color (BITOC).We define BITOC as theatres founded by, for, about, with and near BIPOC communities. We hosted two info sessions on January 28th and January 29th, 2021. We'd like to thank Leslie Ishii, Artistic Director, Perseverance Theatre; Board President, CAATA; Jackie Taylor, Artistic Director, Black Ensemble Theater; Snehal Desai, Artistic Director, East West Players; Teresa Coleman Wash, Artistic Director, Bishop Arts Theatre; and Rafael Sánchez, Executive Artistic Director, Repertorio Español for their support in organizing and helping to frame these sessions.
Given that each session had a different set of speakers and questions asked, we are sharing both recordings with you. Both sessions also mentioned the benefit of peer-to-peer information sharing amongst BITOCS in particular. Because of this, TCG compiled a list of BITOCs who received the first round of PPP which you can find on slide #4 of the slide deck, HERE.
Need additional assistance with federal relief applications? Additional application support sessions for BITOCs will be announced in the coming weeks, so please stay tuned. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for general questions.
