COVID-19 has pushed artists into the digital space, which has been both a boon and a bane. Patrons and practitioners have been sorely missing our theatres and our studios begging the question – should we Zoom Ahead or Hit Pause?
Join us for a diverse panel discussion on these issues, consisting of Dean for the Centre for Lifelong Education at NAFA Dr. Jeffery Tan, newly minted Co-Artistic Director Myra Loke, founder of drama education company Nora-Neo Crothers, multi-disciplinary artist Irfan Kasban, creator of hit drama Lion Moms and mother Jean Yeo, and aspiring theatre maker and student Shema Shadila. The panel will be moderated by Applied Drama Educator, entrepreneur, and parent Oniatta Effendi.
Their discussion will be based on a series of focus groups with artists, producers, educators, parents, students, and executive decision makers. Together, they will share their experiences, expectations, and hopes for digital arts engagement, especially in this extraordinary time.
