Social Anxiety in the Arts Community moderated by Adam Bradley


With Halloway Jones, Kristel Jax, and Kurt Marble.

Have you ever gone to a show only to find yourself sequestered in the restroom to avoid social contact? Ever felt completely overwhelmed by how many people you know in a room? Or how few? Ever found yourself to be the life of a conversation, but terrified the whole time? Social anxiety exists in myriad forms and beleaguers all types, from the apparently shy and awkward to the outwardly confident and outgoing. In this conversation with a group of people involved in the local scene, we’ll explore the various manifestations of social anxiety in Toronto’s music community: its absurd side, its heavy side and just why it is we put ourselves in front of the rushing train of public interaction.

This event is part of The Conversations. In our continued desire to promote investigation through performance, we have programmed a series of public conversations that ask artists to engage in discussion around aspects of performance practice. All conversations are free and open to the public, who are invited to listen, participate, and come and go as they please.
