Decentering Whiteness in Touring & Presenting TYA (Presented in association with IPAY)

Speakers: Terina-Jasmine (TJ) Alladin, Jacqueline Handy, Rosa Hyde, Sophie Myrtil-McCourty, Jairo Ontiveros

How can Presenters, who curate domestic and international performances for young audiences for their local communities, take an active role in reflecting their audiences on stage? How can the Presenting field interrogate the ways that white supremacy can impact notions of “Quality” in aesthetics of TYA? Join a panel of presenters for a roundtable discussion unpacking the challenges and the opportunities for creating a more equitable landscape in touring and presenting TYA in the US.
