Facilitating Meaningful Effective Post-Show Interactions

As arts organizations continue to produce work that shines a light on missing and underrepresented racial narratives, there can be many questions about how to truly engage audiences with the work.

One of the best ways to engage with audiences after an artistic performance or experience is by having a conversation that allows time to process and reflect on their experience. Whether you call these opportunities talk-backs, post-show discussions, gatherings or the like, there is a key to creating interactions that are engaging and meaningful.

Join Seena Hodges, founder of The Woke Coach, for a workshop about how to facilitate more stimulating, thought-provoking, no holds barred post-show interactions. Learn how to structure your sessions in order to have tough conversations, as well as tips and tricks to maximize audience participation.

Presented by Seena Hodges. Seena is a connector who loves people and is passionate about racial equity, intersectional feminism, and access to brave spaces for all.
