Director/Choreographers Networking Events with Designers
TSDCA is partnering with Stage Directors and Choreographers Foundation and the Studio School of Design (SSD) to co-host a series of director & choreographer-designer networking events, held via Zoom, throughout March. Meet and reconnect with directors, choreographers and designers from across the country!
Each event will primarily consist of a series of one-on-one meetings where directors & choreographers will be paired with designers, with potential for small group meetings toward the end if time allows.
Monday, March 14th at 5pm Eastern (4pm Central, 2pm Pacific)
Wednesday, March 16th at 2pm Eastern (1pm Central, 11am Pacific)
Saturday, March 19th at 1pm Eastern (12pm Central, 10am Pacific)
SPACE IS LIMITED – Please sign up by March 4th. Everyone may attend one event. This series is open to designers, directors, and choreographers at all stages of their careers. This is open to both union and non-union designers in all categories, and directors and choreographers do not need to be members of SDC to attend.
THIS IS A TWO HOUR EVENT. Since the events are structured as a series of one-on-ones, we ask that you stay the whole time. ASL interpreters are available for this series. To help us book the right number of interpreters, please let us know if you would use this resource at least eight days before the event(s) you would like to attend.
Please share this form with Directors/Choreographers.
Studio School of Design (SSD) is an interdependent community of practice where experiential learning is embedded into a curriculum of design storytelling. We celebrate a full range of human cultural expression and identity, and we especially support those who are and have previously been marginalized or excluded from the design professions. We see theatrical design as a creative art form and are deeply invested in the potential of telling diverse and inclusive human stories through the medium of design.
- To create an inclusive and multicultural learning environment where designers are engaged in obtaining effective 21st Century forward design storytelling tools facilitated by an experienced and diverse professional faculty.
- To prepare contemporary designers for the broad range of today’s lighting careers.
- To maintain an affordable learning environment that directly addresses both overwhelming school debt and consequent systemic exclusion through scholarships and fairly priced classes.
- To work toward the goal of a diversified community of lighting professionals that reflect the global majority.
- To design a holistic curriculum that merges art and technology, philosophy, practice and real-world skills into a deep understanding of design and its practical applications.
- To fulfill a community need for lifelong learning that is current with cutting-edge creative skills and technological breakthroughs in an expanding and volatile job market.
