Historic Theatre

March 05th @ 6pm

TWICE a month, The Cultch will open its doors to the community with a free event – provided for the community, from the community. Each month, anyone from the Vancouver community can teach others something new – whether it be a cooking class, dancing, a yoga class, a party! – providing a space to learn, create and come together!

Dark Day #7: Our Community of Practice with Artist Kim Senklip Harvey

If you are a theatre maker engaged in or curious about the development of indigenous work this is for you.

The intention of the gathering is to hold space for the community to reflect, think and discuss about how we as community members, artists, patrons, designers, administration, critics and artistic leaders engage and impact Indigenous theatre.

Kim will use her journey as a playwright, director, actor and Indigenous woman to hold conversations around the challenges and opportunities she faces creating space for Indigenous ceremony to exist with the dominant Western Eurocentric theatrical frameworks of the Canada Nation.

Hear about her journey in writing and directing Kamloopa, an Indigenous Matriarch play and how that intersects with her work in cultural leadership.

Come create space for discovering and deepening our understandings of how we as community members impact the process and reception of Indigenous theatre.

Our Community of Practice is rooted within the value system of the sacred 7 Grandmother teachings: humility, courage, truth, respect, love, wisdom and honesty. These values will be actively held to hold ourselves accountable as we navigate these challenging and necessary conversations.

Bring your questions and curiosity.
