Description:

Join us to gather in community during AJT’s 2021 Virtual Conference. These spaces are meant to allow folks from across our vital and vibrant Jewish Theatre ecosystem an opportunity to meet, share stories, and build lasting relationships. Affinity Groups will be hosted by racial/ethnic identity; gender; ability; and sexual orientation. Due to our time constraints, these sessions will be happening concurrently. We recognize that you may hold multiple identities, and understand the potential harm or discomfort that may come with choosing one group to attend. We ask you to choose whichever group feels most called to at the time of the session.  EVENT 7
