Special one-time Central Region Edition
Monday, May 2nd, 5 PM – 7 PM CT
Sponsored by TSDCA
Directors/Producers/General Managers/Production Managers:
Take this opportunity to meet new Designers, discover talent, and expand your hiring pool.
Designers in the Central Region:
You are being asked to self-identify as “Central Region” designers – whether you work there or wish to in the future.
TSDCA defines the Central Region as encompassing Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, and Wisconsin.
We are making this available to all directors – whether local or traveling to your area.
The event will primarily consist of a series of one-on-one meetings where directors/choreographers/managers will be paired with designers, with potential for small group meetings toward the end if time allows.
SPACE IS LIMITED – Please sign up by April 28th. This event is open to designers, directors, and choreographers at all stages of their careers. It is open to 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 event is 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.
Background: This is the 14th (fourteenth!!) networking event run by USA 829 Designers Daisy Long and Jane Shaw. Comments from past attendees include:
“I think this is a fantastic thing that should be a semi-regular event.”
“This is exactly the sort of thing we need both professionally, but also socially after this past year. The format you’ve devised works great and I think the length of time per session is perfect, because if it’s going well, you can say “Lets stay in touch” and if it’s going nowhere, then there’s not too much more time to fill. “
“I didn’t know what to expect and it was a lovely surprise and wonderfully stimulating after a year and a half of such extreme isolation. It made me eager to return to the rehearsal room.”
