EQ - Equity Quarterly - 2016
We're celebrating Equity's Ruby Anniversary with a special commemorative issue of EQ that looks back over the past 40 years and ahead to the next 40. Follow the timeline that flows through the magazine to see how Equity has helped improve conditions for members - and don't miss our exclusive interview with Mélanie Joly, Minister of Canadian Heritage, on how the Liberal government plans to follow through on its commitment to increased funding for arts and culture.
In this issue of EQ we explore the allure of repertory theatre. Although this type of theatre company used to be popular in Canada, it is now relatively rare due to its high cost. Find out how new models are revitalizing its unique structure and creating new opportunities for Equity members. In this issue we also introduce the new Equity Council, debut a new feature that celebrates Equity Honours recipients, and flashback 50 years at Regina's Globe Theatre.
EQ - Equity Quarterly - 2015
This issue of EQ looks forward to how we can make Equity a stronger Association. In addition, you'll find out the first release of data from The Equity Census and the urgency of making your voice heard in the upcoming federal election. The current federal government has not been kind to the arts - so make sure you vote for arts and culture on Election Day.
Discover why audiences and artists alike love festivals as we explore the appeal of festivals such as the Fringe - and ask whether it's becoming the new development ground for original Canadian works. Also in this issue, learn how the Royal Winnipeg Ballet used dance to tell the story of the Indian Residential Schools, and find out why it's important to participate in the upcoming Membership Demography Survey even if you don't consider yourself to be part of a diverse group.
It's the boldest project Equity has ever undertaken - and all you need to do is tell us about yourself. Read about The Equity Census and why your colleagues are going to provide their member numbers so Equity can conduct ongoing analysis about how diversity has an impact on work opportunities, engagement patterns and income earned. Also in this issue - find out the results from the recent safe and respectful workplaces survey and how Equity is helping to make your workplace safer.
EQ - Equity Quarterly - 2014
EQ comes out in this special queer issue helmed by guest editor Matthew Hays. We travel across the country to ask a celebrated group of artists their feelings about the state of queer theatre and performance today, and look back at 35 years of Toronto's Buddies in Bad Times, the world's oldest queer theatre. We also talk to Nina Arsenault about her amazing journey, and celebrate the 25th anniversary of Brad Fraser's landmark play, Unidentified Human Remains and the True Nature of Love.
How is working with child performers different from working with adults? Find out in this special 'Child's Play' issue of EQ. And how about juggling a theatre career with the demands of parenting? Equity members share their stories of playing both roles. You'll also learn what Equity has been doing to protect children working in live performance and to ensure they are paid fairly. In addition, the special double wrap cover provides important information on the upcoming Dues Referendum.
