There has been so much in the media lately surrounding harassment in Hollywood and across America, but also right here at home in Canadian theatre. At Equity, Council and staff have developed a new anti-harassment and safe workplace campaign called Not in OUR Space! geared at promoting safety in theatre and preventing workplace harassment. Winnipeg has been a leader in the initial rollout of this endeavour. However, the campaign is less than a year old, so it may be unfamiliar to many members. This gathering will be an opportunity to get to know this campaign and explore how it can benefit our local Equity membership.

Joining us on February 12 will be Kristian Clarke, Senior Projects Manager, from Equity staff in the National Office. Kristian will be be present to answer any questions you may have regarding the Not in OUR Space! campaign of which he lead in the development.

Location: Prairie Theatre Exchange, 3rd Floor, Portage Place, Unit Y300-393 Portage Avenue, Winnipeg, MB
Date: Monday, February 12, 2018
Time: 7:30 p.m.
Rsvp: On Facebook or email
The event will also be an opportunity to connect with the local membership, to share what’s going on in our community, and to bring up any questions or concerns regarding Equity on a local and national level.

Equity members must be in good standing to attend. Please bring your member card to show at the door. Permittee members and post-secondary students are also welcome to attend. However, you must RSVP to ensure a spot as space is limited for non-Equity members.

I hope to see you there!
