SEPTEMBER - OCTOBER 2021
A virtual workshop meant to stimulate the creative process, learn the basic principles of playwriting, and use theatre as a tool for activism and advocacy. Participants were guided through writing exercises to create potential submissions for #ENOUGH: Plays to End Gun Violence, a playwriting competition aiming to “confront gun violence by creating new works of theatre that spark critical conversations and inspire meaningful action in communities across the country.” We brought in professional writers and theater artists to share all their amazing tips and tricks!
The workshop was led by actress and playwright, Maria Corina Ramirez. Maria Corina wrote, directed and starred in her debut feature film, Bridges, which premiered at the 38th Miami International Film Festival and the 20th Los Angeles Latino International Film Festival to much acclaim. She is dedicated to creating work that amplifies and humanizes the real Miami, the Latin female experience and promotes real changes in matters of social justice.
