  • Harvardwood NYC Chapter, join fellow alumni and friends for an exclusive look at the Perelman Performing Arts Center (PAC NYC), before the facility opens to the public this fall. This extraordinary new venue will serve as a home for all the performing arts – theater, dance, music, opera, film, and media. A performing arts center has been part of the master plan for rebuilding the World Trade Center site since 2003. Located next to the 9/11 Memorial & Museum, PAC NYC will bring new life and vitality to the site and to lower Manhattan – and expand horizons for the arts in New York City. 

    The new PAC building lit up

    After experiencing PAC NYC with Artistic Director Bill Rauch, we’ll wind down with a casual reception and time for networking at Bill’s West Side Bar at the Marriott Downtown, with 2 drinks included for each guest.

  • Harvardwood Suggests... Critical Response Process Workshop

    Saturday, June 03, 2023 at 07:00 AM - PDT

    The Ceramics Program supports the creative efforts of a wide array of artists in the Boston area - potters, sculptors, painters, etc. We pride ourselves on our community and we understand that many times, students wish to engage in thoughtful dialogue and critique on work outside of the classroom. In a hopes to promote further engagement between our community members, we have asked John Borstel and Catherine Stewart to introduce us to the Critical Response Process (CRP).

    If you are doing creative work, you are experiencing feedback: invited or unsolicited, formal or casual, in dialogue with others or in your own head. Handling and applying feedback can be decisive in how we value our work, how we grow, and how we sustain a sense of community in artistic contexts. The Critical Response Process (CRP) devised by choreographer Liz Lerman in 1990, is a four-step process and toolkit of principles for guiding actionable feedback on creative works in progress. CRP emphasizes the power of questions and the potential of informed dialogue between an artist and a group of responders. It offers principles to animate generative conversations between creative collaborators and peers.

    Participants in this workshop will learn CRP as a structured feedback method that leaves the maker eagerly motivated to get back to work. We’ll explore CRP’s principles of meaning, inquiry, and engaged/suspended judgment, and experience applications to enhance personal and collective learning, support peer dialogue and artistic conversations, and bring clarity and abundance to creative process. While this workshop centers craft and visual artwork, it welcomes people from all creative disciplines.

    Workshop Fee: $150.00 for Adult Community and Harvard Graduate students; FREE for Harvard Undergraduates

    ***Those enrolled in Summer 2023 classes will receive a 25% discount code prior to registration!***

  • Harvardwood Suggests... Good and Gaslit

    Sunday, June 04, 2023 at 05:30 PM - PDT
    Stephanie Feury Studio Theater, 5636 Melrose Ave., LA, CA 90038
    Come see Deborah Cincotta's new show GOOD and GASLIT premiering at the Hollywood Fringe Festival on June 4th (before heading to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August).

    GOOD and GASLIT sets the stage for a woman’s clever examination of the power of gaslighting through her experience in Hollywood, in parenting and beyond. It uses humor, wit and a quick tongue in a “one-woman-show within a two-woman show inspired by a movie” starring a young theater director launching her career and a less-than-young TV executive performing her first theater show, Stop the Gaslight. It's as funny as it is powerful. 
    Who wants to miss that?!  And yes, I will be performing in it. Crazy times. 
    Let me know if you're coming -- We'll be grabbing drinks afterwards a bar / restaurant in the neighborhood (Larchmont).
    Tickets are now on sale ($12 / $10 with code FRIEND) at Hollywood Fringe Festival.

  • Finding the Right Mental Health Support for You is a one-hour workshop that addresses the interest in finding a therapist and how finding the right one can often feel daunting. The intention of this workshop is to demystify the big questions around mental health care, including the different mental health provider options, the cost of counseling, how insurance can work to ameliorate such costs, and what mental health options there are for those who might not be insured. This workshop is designed to give those in the entertainment industry an understanding of what types of mental health resources are out there, how to determine which ones might be a good fit, and how to access them.
