About Open Door:

Open Door is an initiative that offers the growing community of IBPOC arts administrators and managers a virtual space for building connections, awareness, and learning exchange through informal monthly gatherings.

Created by a collective of arts leaders from across Canada, Open Door is an opportunity for aspiring, emerging, and established IBPOC administrators to come together to share ideas, concerns, challenges, support, and solidarity. Participation is free and open to all interested and aspiring IBPOC administrators. 

These virtual meetings will provide a safe and encouraging space for skill development exchange, networking, and expanding social capital. In alignment with our Open Door Community Agreement and value of inclusion, while Open Door centers IBPOC administrators, other self-identifying equity-seeking administrators are also welcome to attend.

Open Door was created by a working group partnership of experienced IBPOC arts leaders and organizations from across Canada, with the support of Belfry Theatre, Native Earth Performing Arts, Obsidian Theatre Company, Urban Ink, Green Thumb Theatre, Professional Association of Canadian Theatres (PACT), Pacific Theatre, Persephone Theatre, The Theatre Centre, and Nightwood Theatre. Open Door is a pilot initiative that launched February 2022, and will inform the framework for a collaborative learning exchange initiative, Rising Tides
