Mindfulness and meditation practitioner of over 30 years Susan Lakatos will be leading an “Introduction to Mindfulness & Meditation for Creatives” program on Tuesdays throughout January. Mindfulness meditation has been shown to increase creativity, even after as little as 10 minutes of meditation. This is an opportunity to acquire and develop the mindfulness skills that can enhance your creativity for a lifetime.
Actors Night at EAG is a judgment-free zone, where you can work on monologues, scenes, commercial copy, cold readings, your own material- anything!- before a group of supportive and talented fellow artists. Whether or not you get constructive feedback is up to you.
Hosted by Peter Von Berg (The Blacklist, The Americans, House of Cards). Actors Night happens on the third Tuesday of each month.
Author/actor/EAG Member Helena-Joyce Wright, actor/EAG Council/ DEI Committee chair Chris Chinn, EAG Executive Director Karen Lehman Foster and members & friends of EAG are continuing their discussions centered around race and racism in America and the arts.
Please join us in this safe space for sustainable conversations with your fellow Guilders that we hope can live and breathe beyond the current moment. Everyone is welcome to come and share your stories, ask questions, and listen.
What goes into a press release? Can you write and send your own? How are they used for different things? These topics will be tackled at Peter Michael Marino's fun, interactive, idea-generating, 90-min press release workshop which aims to empower you to do your own press.
We'll discuss the basics, and together we'll investigate creating creative press releases, generating press-worthy ideas, and figuring out who your audience is. We'll discover and discuss effective ways to get the word out about your show, song, product, event, etc. Plus, you'll receive access to press release templates and press release/story pitch samples.
In Lyndsay Faye's lush, magical, queer, and feminist take on Hamlet in modern-day New York City, a neuro-atypical philosopher, along with his best friend Horatio and artist ex-fiancé Lia, are caught up in the otherworldly events surrounding the death of his father.

The word "Activist" has been on my mind. It is a word that has been thrown around a lot lately. I’ve always admired and respected Activists. I’ve always wanted--secretly--to become one. But I hold those deserving of the word and title in very high esteem. What does it take to be an Activist? What qualities and characteristics must one possess? I have found one trait that all Activists have in common: Hope. To try and make change when that change seems insurmountable--and even unreachable--it takes great courage…and Hope.
So, my HOPE for all of us this New Year is that we continue to listen to one another with an open heart & mind, learn from one another, and love one another…..and take all that we know to be good and right, and put it into ACTION in 2022!
We begin this New Year with 3 Activists who I admire- one, the greatest Activist of all! Here are the DEI Committee’s first s of 2022:
WATCH: We’re Here. A series that takes 3 drag queens to rural areas in America and transforms 3 of their community members' lives by transforming them into drag queens. This series was a true & amazing surprise! Try not crying and laughing through every episode!
LEARN: Ady Barkan. An inspiring Activist whose “disabilities” become non-existent compared to his abilities, courage, and strength.
