Lindsey Gardner-Penner | Panel Discussion
About this session: Jane Vogel is bringing together a group of artists, activists, and organizations that have an action plan for advancing gender equity in theatre. AGE is planning a partnership/coalition project that links arts organizations together in their equity efforts. The goal of this session is to embrace and support efforts and actions that help birth a new gender-balanced cultural paradigm. We will brainstorm and disseminate ideas, link and leverage assets, network, and mobilizing resources.
