Broadway Advocacy Coalition and Columbia Law School will offer a week-long workshop course in January 2019 entitled The Theater of Change: Building the Capacity for Impact through Artistry, Law, and Activism.
Britton Smith (Be More Chill, Shuffle Along), Ben Wexler (2018 Jonathan Larson Grant finalist), Zhailon Levingston, Columbia Law School professor and director of the Center for Institutional and Social Change Susan Sturm created the course, which will run January 14–19, 2019. Tony-winning composer Jeanine Tesori will guest lecture.
Applications are now open to Broadway artists and members of the New York theatre community from the fields of performing, writing, directing, design, and more. To find out more about the course, interested applicants can attend an informational session November 19.
The week will focus on issues of educational and criminal justice and how the arts, policy, and individuals can create work towards change.
