I don’t know how far we’ve come. It’s hard to measure when you’re in the smack in middle of something.
But an initiative was born. Heat was generated. Actions have been taken.
We have our study (thank you again Ella Martin and all who queried and compiled) and its oh-Lord-we-have-more-work-to-do results… http://lafpi.com/about/the-study/
Theatres have been put on notice that we’re paying attention.
Speeches have been made at award shows, articles have been written and circulated.
And this blog was started a year ago, April 19, 2010.
Even though I haven’t gotten to gather in person with the LAFPI gang in many months due to my schedule conflicts (I do plan on making the May 15th picnicky thing!), I definitely have felt a sense of community as we write and share the journey of being playwrights here in da blog.
It feels better when you’re going through something together. Here’s to the next year of blogging, playwriting, initiating, activating, and makin’ more noise… together.
