Playwrights on Writing for Young Audiences:
A Partnership Between TCG-NEA-TYA/USA
Clockwise from the top left: Lauren Gunderson, Alvaro Saar Rios, Idris Goodwin
In honor of National Arts in Education Week (September 13 – 19, 2020), we invite you to join us on Thursday, September 17th from 4-5pm ET (1-2pm PT) for a special presentation we’ve arranged in partnership with the NEA celebrating the importance of Theatre for Young Audiences.
Tune in to watch a virtual roundtable of playwrights (and parents!) Idris Goodwin, Lauren Gunderson, and Alvaro Saar Rios speak on their experiences writing for young audiences, what the work means to them in light of the pandemic and newly energized movements for racial justice, and the great responsibility that comes with writing plays for the next generation of citizens and theatre-goers.
This is a free event, but you must register in order to receive the Zoom link. ASL and closed captioning will be available, and we encourage you to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have additional access needs we can help support. The recording will be made available to registered attendees by late-September 2020.
