Stay busy and stay focused with this FREE library of programing!
We, at your L.A. Local, want to provide you with resources during these unprecedented times to keep us connected to each other, our craft, and our brother/sister unions. Your committee chairs are actively brainstorming ideas for future educational programming that we hope to introduce to you in one way or another. So, please keep up with emails from us as well as following us on Facebook and Twitter.
I am also proud to hear about amazing committee members taking the initiative to continue to serve our members using their own time and resources.
- Until we can resume our regular L.A. MORE Committee Table Reads, virtual table reads are happening on the Coverfly Facebook page.
- A free actor quarantine newsletter sharing a bunch of free workshops and resources is available during this time. Click here to join the Facebook group.
