OUTSpoken Opens Workshop Registration
for LGBTQ+ Writers
OUTSpoken is a fifth-year program from the Sundress Academy for the Arts (SAFTA) that will take place in April of 2018. Our goal is to create a platform for the LGBTQ+ community of Knoxville, Tennessee and its surrounding areas to record and perform the experiences of sex- and gender-diverse individuals in the South
Registration for the OUTSpoken workshop series is now open. On-site participants will be a part of two workshops over the course of two weeks in order to create, edit, and produce a piece of art to be performed during SAFTA’s OUTSpoken events in April of 2018. Workshop attendees will work with professionals in performance, prose, and poetry to compose and tell their own stories.
Workshops will be held on January 20th and 27th and run from 1PM to 3PM at the Sundress Academy for the Arts. Cost for the workshop is $20 for one and $30 for both. Discounts are available for students. If you are unable to attend because of cost, we do have limited scholarships available. Scholarship applications are due by January 10th and should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org for consideration.
We are also doing a BOGO special this year! Order tickets for yourself and give a ticket to a friend for free. Please note if you are claiming this option in your order so our team can properly prepare for the correct number of workshop attendees.
As LGBTQ issues gain greater visibility, it is crucial that we explore the complexities of sex and gender diversity respectfully. That said, we realize that unity cannot and must not be silent, and that in order to create a meaningful dialogue, we must acknowledge and listen to the stories, experiences, grievances, arguments, and counterarguments of all sex- and gender-diverse persons.
