Join Now

This year, for CATR’s annual Conduct Committee session, the committee members invite CATR delegates to register in advance and join in a synchronous, virtual, facilitated and accessible “Dreaming Table” at which to consider questions around how the spaces in which we work might be rendered safer for Indigenous, Black and Racialized artists; for female-identifying artists; for Deaf/deaf, Disabled and Mad artists, for 2SLGBTQIA+ artists and for artists who have been made to feel unwelcome or unsafe in the academy, the sites of public performance and/or in the spaces of digital gathering and/or performance. Adapted from Lois Weaver’s Long Table practice, this “Dreaming Table” event aims to open up space to begin a process of curating accessible and welcoming spaces in which artists and culture workers from all communities will be able to do their work without risk to their wellbeing.
