TDVY Makers Think Space


 Wednesday, April 12

7:30pm - 8:30pm Central Time



Hosted by Amanda Pintore

Do you have a new TDVY performance idea you want to daydream on? In the middle of a project and wishing you had a sounding board for the experience? Wanting to meet other folks who do the thing you do? Join us in an open think space centered around making/writing/producing Theatre and Dance for the Very Young performances (or those wishing to do so). This gathering is free of cost (you must register to receive the Zoom Link) and is open to makers in any stage of their TDVY career (emerging, established, on hiatus, etc.). Please note this is a casual evening of dialogue, dreaming, and community making (rather than a formal workshop).
