Sex, Drugs and Rock & Roll
(And Why We Can’t Afford Them Anymore)

Members helping members. It’s one of the hallmarks of our union. And if you’re an artist or musician, you know these can be challenging times filled with promise as well as pitfalls. 

Please join acclaimed singer-songwriter Georgia Middleman for a candid round table conversation between singers, songwriters and indie recording artists where we’ll cover what’s working for us, what’s not working for us and what keeps us going in this new landscape of the music business where it seems to be harder and harder to make a living.

Goals:

  • To connect with each other from our lonely islands of trying to self-start or reinvent our careers
  • Inspire ideas in each other
  • Share experiences where things are working monetarily and where they’re not anymore
  • Uncover ongoing issues where we might consider bringing in an expert to help educate us about some of these matters

We’ll provide pizza and beverages; you’ll bring the ideas and inspiration! 

When: 5 – 7 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 30

Where: SAG-AFTRA Nashville Office
1108 17th Ave. S. Nashville
TN 37212
(Parking in front and back)

Where: Phoenix Annex/Seydways Acting Studios (Native Sons Building)
414 Mason Street, 4th Floor, Suite 406
San Francisco, CA 94102

This free workshop for SAG-AFTRA members is designed to help actors find ease with using the imagination as their primary tool in connecting emotionally. This is a hands on workshop which will include improvisational and scripted scene work, as well as covering a clear, practical understanding of such foundation concepts as:

  • Substitution
  • Backstory
  • Given circumstances
  • The role of emotion 
  • The Magic "as if"
  • Being "in the moment"

This enjoyable and informative workshop is designed to explore the foundations of a practical approach to acting for actors of all levels. If you have ever been confused by the myriad terms and approaches of acting methods, or feel pressured to 'be more emotional,' this workshop will help you sort through and create a foundation for a way of working no matter what your approach or training may be.

Class size is limited to 40 members.

RSVP: Please RSVP by email to Vicki Balich vicki.balich@sagaftra.org. Please include your name, phone number and union membership I.D. number.

Participants will be randomly selected from those who respond, with preference being given to those who have not attended Conservatory events in the past year.

As a courtesy to members on the waiting list, if you have reserved a space in this workshop and cannot attend, please cancel your reservation by Wednesday, July 6. Failure to do so may result in the inability to attend future workshops.

We appreciate your enthusiasm to participate in conservatory classes, but anyone who shows up without receiving written confirmation will not be granted access to the class. If you arrive late, it is up to the discretion of the teacher as to whether or not you will be admitted.

Cost: This event is free for SAG-AFTRA members.

It’s about joining together as passionate community members and raising money for a great cause.

Registration: Interested runners can register for the race here. Once registered, forward your confirmation email to runwithus@broadwaycares.org and we will send you instructions on how to set up your individual fundraising page. The goal for each runner is to raise $200. Runners who reach that goal will receive a Broadway Run t-shirt. Prizes will also be awarded to the top three fundraisers.

All money raised will go directly to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and donations are 100 percent tax-deductible. Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS is the major supporter of the social service programs at The Actors Fund, including the HIV/AIDS Initiative, The Dancers’ Resource, the Phyllis Newman Women’s Health Initiative and the Al Hirschfeld Free Health Clinic.
