2017 Sojourn Summer Institute

for Adults Working in Theater, Education & Community

(in collaboration with Center for Performance and Civic Practice)

July 10-14, 2017
9am- 4:30pm Monday-Friday
Fee: $450
Institute Leader: Michael Rohd

The Sojourn Theatre/CPCP Summer Institute is hosted by the Alice B. Rapoport Center for Education and Engagement at Goodman Theatre, as part of a multi year CPCP & Goodman Theatre partnership.

This Institute supports your capacity for arts-based community-led transformation. The five day session offers participants creative strategies to problem-solve, build intersectional coalitions and envision inclusive futures within your own collaborative work with adults (and/or young people) in a variety of settings. We will explore -

  • How to create original performance from a variety of starting impulses;
  • How to build leadership and collaborative authorship in group processes;
  • How to develop partnerships between artists and non-arts sector partners;
  • How to imagine and co-plan projects and programming that respond to community-defined needs;
  • How to build safe spaces and facilitate civic dialogue

Sojourn and CPCP work to support and increase the capacity of artists and community organizations to imagine and collaborate towards racially equitable and economically just communities.  People of color and people from traditionally underrepresented populations and communities are especially encouraged to apply. 

This year we are able to offer a limited number of full and partial scholarships to offset tuition costs. If financial need is an obstacle to participation, please email for information on how to apply for a scholarship.
