Join us on October 24th for a special networking event hosted for the Creatives of Color Oregon. Afterwards, dive into the world of entertainment unions with an informative session on joining a Union, where you’ll have the opportunity to meet and learn from representatives of the Directors Guild of America (DGA) and the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees Local 488 (IATSE 488).
From 5-6pm OMPA presents a COCO networking mixer. A vibrant networking social hour designed for Creatives of Color. Connect with fellow artists, writers, film-makers, and visionaries in a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere that celebrates diversity and creativity. Enjoy an evening of meaningful connections while savoring a delightful spread of refreshments and light hors d’oeuvres.
Immediately afterwards, we welcome all industry creatives and professionals to the kick-off of the Pathways x COCO Monthly Seminar Series: Joining a Union. The first in a series of monthly seminars hosted by the Pathways Program in conjunction with Oregon Film, Outside the Frame and the OMPA. You’ll also have the chance to learn about the process and benefits of joining a union. Discover the ins and outs of the entertainment industry by meeting representatives from the Directors Guild of America (DGA), International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees Local 488 (IATSE 488) and others. Don’t miss this unique chance to network, learn, and explore the world of unions in the entertainment sector!
If you do not identify as a creative of color – or plan to join just for the Union Seminar Series – we welcome you to at 6pm!
This event is supported through Oregon Film and the Creative Opportunity Program.
