Open Door is an initiative to build connections, awareness, and learning exchange within the IBPOC arts administration community, through informal and regularly occurring virtual gatherings for IBPOC arts administrators and managers.
Created by a collective of arts leaders from across Canada, Open Door is an opportunity for aspiring, emerging, and established IBPOC administrators to come together to share ideas, concerns, challenges, support and solidarity. Participation is free and open to all interested and aspiring IBPOC administrators.
These virtual meetings will provide a safe and encouraging space for skill development exchange, networking, and expanding social capital. While Open Door is an initiative focused on IBPOC arts administrators, other self-identifying equity seeking arts administrators are also welcome to attend.
Open Door was created by a working group partnership of experienced IBPOC arts leaders and organizations from across Canada, with the support of Native Earth Performing Arts, Obsidian Theatre Company, Urban Ink, Green Thumb Theatre, Professional Association of Canadian Theatres (PACT), Pacific Theatre, and The Theatre Centre. Open Door is a pilot initiative launching February 2022, and will inform the framework for a collaborative learning exchange initiative, Rising Tides.
