alt.theatre JOURNAL LAUNCH – issues 12.3 and 12.4
Alt.theatre magazine launches a two-part issue exploring questions coming out of the Train of Thought project. These special issues, curated by editor-in-chief Nikki Shaffeeullah and the alt.theatre editorial team, in collaboration with Jumblies Theatre, brings together artists, activitsts, and community leaders from the 90+ organizations involved in Train of Thought to reflect on the project and share ideas on the potential of art to facilitate intercultural collaboration and decolonial action. Through interviews, think-pieces, scholarly articles, photo essays, script excerpts, and book reviews, these issues feature critical conversations on art, race and settler-colonialism; personal reflections on storytelling and ancestry; previews of new theatrical work; insights into community-engaged arts projects happening coast to coast; and more.
