This is from the hike we went on on our very first day! How beautiful!
I'm still in awe that I got to attend my first in-person Literary Managers and Dramaturgs of the Americas conference in the beautiful Banff, Canada. In the spirit of respect, reciprocity, and truth, I wish to honor and acknowledge that the townsite of Banff is located on traditional Treaty 7 territory. "These sacred lands are a gathering place for the Niitsitapi from the Blackfoot Confederacy, of whom the Siksika, Kainai, and Piikani First Nations are part; the Îyârhe Nakoda of the Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Goodstoney First Nations; the Tsuut’ina First Nation; the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region III within the historical Northwest Métis Homeland, and many others whose histories, languages, and cultures continue to enrich their vibrant community." -Banff's Land Acknowledgement
Since there is often only one dramaturg in a rehearsal room or on a project, it is rare to have this many dramaturgs in the same room! I still feel joyful about the conversations I was able to be part of and the wisdom I was able to soak in during my time at Banff. I can't wait for next year's conference in Kansas City!
