Tactile Talks – A conversation on creating with curiosity


Part of the National Queer & Trans Playwriting Unit.


This community offering is an invitation into the individual artistic processes of playwrights Robyn Vivian and Elio Zarrillo. Join these artists as they integrate craft-making into community conversation to explore questions pertaining to their current plays-in-development. This will be a workshop session about using the tools you already have at your disposal to explore deep questions through a hands-on artistic exercise. This event may be of special interest for queer and/or neurodivergent artists.


The questions the playwrights are eager to unpack with you relate to:
  • the fluidity of our sense of self
  • how reality is created and;
  • our understandings of “good” and “evil”
This community offering is being held both digitally and in-person, simultaneously.


When: Saturday, May 6, 2023
Saskatoon – 2:30 pm
Whitehorse – 1:30 pm
Duration: 90 minutes

Deadline to register – May 4, 2023


Participants should plan to have crafting or arts supplies on hand suitable for creating collage, or any other visual artistic expressions of interest.
