When: Classes are held on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month, from 7:30–8:30 pm. Each class is 45 minutes (recorded) followed by 15 minutes of Q&A (not recorded). The recorded portion will be shared in our archives for those unable to attend live.

What: Each month we host two classes programmed around a common theme.
- The first class each month will be a Conversation. A Conversation is a gathering with instructors to discuss issues and topics within the theatre-making process and community. These conversations will illuminate issues, encourage multiple points of view, and discuss multiple forward-thinking solutions.
- The second class each month will be a Practical Lesson. Practical Lessons are designed to generate instruction for practical skills or processes essential to theatre-making with the goal of providing tools that artists can bring into their practice to encourage balance and growth.
