    This week long festival of readings is the culmination of the second trimester of the Watah Performing Artist Development Initiative (PADI), a residency that provides both theoretical and practical performance training while enabling mentorship between emerging/newly emerged and established artists. It offers professional artistic development for Black, Indigenous, POC and LGBTQQIP2SAA peoples between the ages of 18-30 who write and perform. In the readings, the artists will explore the relationship between themselves and the art they create as well as the stories they have been told and that they perpetuate.
