The meeting is the first in CSA's "Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion in Casting Initiative," a "series of conversations and workshops designed to effect measurable change in how actors from historically underrepresented communities are afforded access to job opportunities." The meeting is open to both union and non-union artists and is intended for professional and professionally trained actors with disabilities who are pursuing professional careers. Howard Sherman will moderate.
The event has two main goals. The first, according to a press release, is "for both constituencies to better understand the practical issues they encounter in their respective professions and to share goals and aspirations." The second is "to discuss how CSA might better and more consistently work to increase audition opportunities and advocate for disabled actors."
Reservations are required. CSA members and disabled actors can RSVP by emailing TownHallRSVP@inclusioninthearts.org.
