SUPPORT ARTISTS IN MYANMAR

Dear Theatre Without Borders community,
 
The Thai Theatre Foundation has created a petition in support of the people and artists of Myanmar. They are asking us to share that petition with you.
 
Would your organization be able to sign? If not, could you please sign it as an individual? 
The Thai Theatre Foundation will submit the petition to the Myanmar embassy in Bangkok on April 8th to add more pressure to the military government.
 
The Thai Theatre Foundation is also raising money to support Thai and Myanmar artists (who, often times, are vocal critics of the dictators). Please consider donating on their Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/thaitheatrefoundation/posts/4030353340425304 
 
Although Thai Theatre Foundation is a 501(c)(3), donations are not tax-deductible in the US at this time as the fundraising hosts (BIPAM and B-Floor Theatre Group) are in Thailand.
 
Please help spread the word. Thank you so much!
 
Sent to TWB by:
Raksak Kongseng (she/they)
Operations Manager | Theatre Communications Group

PETITION:

Human rights violations in Myanmar continue to rise following a coup on February 1, 2021. According to several international news agencies, at least 550 civilians have been slaughtered thus far. Among these, Poet Kayza Win was shot and killed. Several other members of the Myanmar artistic community were arrested because of their artistic freedom of expression.

In response to the Call to the Global Creative Community to Show Solidarity with the People of Myanmar issued by 15 arts organizations in Myanmar, Thai Theatre Foundation (US) and Thai Theatre Foundation Working Group (Thailand) along with the following organizations and individuals have united to issue this statement of solidarity with the People of Myanmar and to defend their artistic freedom of expression.

We demand an immediate end to all cruelties.

We demand accountability for all the crimes unjustifiably committed against the People of Myanmar.

No one should be persecuted for their artistic expression.

Defending artistic freedom of expression transcends political party lines and international borders. It is a nonpartisan issue because once one person’s right is violated, everybody’s right is violated. It is vital that we stand up against injustice not only in Thailand, but also in Myanmar and throughout the world.

This petition will be submitted to the Embassy of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar in Bangkok.

New Safety Guide for Artists

 

Artists At Risk Connection have released a
new Safety Guide for Artists

 

Image and text courtesy of Artists At Risk Connection

Artists take risks, but they should not have to risk their lives. Nevertheless, global watchdogs document hundreds of cases each year of artists who are attacked, imprisoned, and even killed for their work––and countless more cases go undocumented.

In response to these realities, ARC has developed A Safety Guide for Artists, a first-of-its-kind manual that offers practical strategies for artists to understand, navigate, and ultimately overcome risk. While such tools have been developed for journalists, human rights defenders, and cartoonists, no guide has been designed specifically for artists. The Safety Guide for Artists fills this crucial gap in providing artists with a resource tailored to their needs.

When an artist first faces risk, there are not a lot of roadmaps: the experience can be incredibly isolating and disorienting. A Safety Guide for Artists explores topics such as defining and understanding risk, preparing for threats, fortifying digital safety, documenting persecution, finding assistance, and recovering from trauma. Tips and strategies were drawn from testimonies of artists who have faced persecution, including Cuban performance artist Tania Bruguera, Lebanese singer Hamed Sinno, American visual artist Dread Scott, and Kenyan filmmaker Wanuri Kahiu, as well as the research and expertise of ARC’s vast network of partners.

The guide is available in English, Spanish, and French and you can find it at:

Reboot Yourself: Pig Iron school

Hello friends out in the big wide world! In 2020, on lockdown, Pig Iron offered its first slate of virtual workshops via Zoom. We had no idea how this would go. We’ve spent the past two decades as fiercely analog artists devoted to breath and space. But we do thrive within limitations, so…we gave it a go.

We were thrilled by the response to our offerings. Great work was made, tears were shed, chills were felt–and several classes were sold out, with students Zooming in from London to Philly to Mexico City to Singapore. The feedback was overwhelming. 100% of students agreed, “I would recommend this class” and “I would study with this teacher again,” in our post-workshop survey. So it looks like this meets a need!

This spring, we’re bringing you another round of virtual workshops: REBOOT YOURSELF.
Each workshop is approximately 12-15 hours of class time. Class size is limited to 10-15 students. Our goals remain: to give you new vocabulary to make your own work, share our artistic obsessions with hungry theatremakers, and to create virtual ensembles of artists who want to reach new frontiers.

More information on the workshops and how to apply is below. Discounts are available for students who wish to participate in more than one workshop.

Announcing ARC’s New Safety Guide for Artists
From Uganda to Vietnam to Cuba, artists around the world are at risk. Never before has PEN America’s Artists at Risk Connection (ARC), which links imperiled artists to resources, received more calls for help.

While such tools have been developed for journalists, human rights defenders, and cartoonists, no guide has been designed specifically for artists. That changes today.
