We are excited to launch a new initiative in partnership with ACI Manitoba – Work It Nights! They are a unique monthly event that will bring artists of all mediums together to present their works in progress to each other and to socialize.
On the third Monday of every month artists are invited to come down to ACI Manitoba (4th floor – 245 McDermot Avenue) to present a work in progress and everyone will work it with them! Playwrights will bring their plays, and we’ll read a scene out loud. Actors will bring their audition monologues, and we’ll observe. Filmmakers will bring their rough cuts, and we’ll watch them. Writers will bring their poems or short stories to read, and we’ll listen. Visual artists will bring their work and share their process. The sky is the limit, anyone can bring anything they are working on and will have up to five minutes to present it, ask for reactions, or get constructive feedback from everyone present.
Admission is by donation and is open to anyone. Artists who may not have something ready to present are still welcome to come and support others. Artists who do have something to present can either confirm a spot in advance or can just come on the night – if there is time we’ll work it! After we are done working, there will be an opportunity to mingle and socialize with each other too.
The first Work It Night will be on November 17th from 7pm to 9pm. For more information, or to sign up for a spot contact Wren at Sarasvàti Productions: 204-586-2236 or firstname.lastname@example.org .
