STAGING QUEER workshop

A space for the theatre community, teachers and other practitioners in Northern Ireland to discuss LGBTQ+ representation in theatre and explore how we can improve inclusion of LGBTQ+ people and stories.

Outburst in partnership with TheatreNI and the Rainbow Project

In association with The MAC

SATURDAY 17th November  1-4pm

The Hub @ The MAC

To work in theatre and performance in Northern Ireland is an extraordinary thing and presents its own peculiar challenges. Similarly, to be a member of the LGBTQ+ community here presents it own challenges. And seeing representations of ourselves on stage here can be equally delightful and frustrating.
This workshop, hosted by Theatre NI, Outburst Arts and The Rainbow Project, and facilitated by Ross Anderson-Doherty (performer/teacher) and John O’Doherty (Director, Rainbow Project), is a space for the theatre community, teachers and other practitioners in Northern Ireland to discuss LGBTQ+ representation in theatre and explore how we can improve inclusion of LGBTQ+ people and stories. In a safe and friendly environment, participants will be encouraged to ask the questions you always wanted to ask with a view to building support for those who wish to develop and nurture a more inclusive working environment and creative practice.
