Vermont Law School
South Royalton, VT
8:30AM - 9:30PM
Workshops on the subjects of Transformational Activism, Race and Equity, and Ritual and Ceremony.
JAG's Producing Artistic Director will present a workshop called "Atlantic Is a Sea of Bones: Black Theatre, JAG Productions, and the Legacy of the Transatlantic Slave Trade" at the Deep Change for Water Justice conference at the Vermont Law School in South Royalton, Vermont!
Description: The workshop invites us to reflect individually and collectively on the afterlives and the legacies of the transatlantic slave trade. We will draw from the ways in which Black theatre artists and Black queer and feminist artists more broadly have taken up this question. Finally, we will learn how JAG Productions creates spaces of engagement and of creation that allow us to honor this history, heal ancestral trauma, and open up new visions and possibilities for Black life and the Black Atlantic.
