It’s Literary Arts Week!

Executive Director’s Letter
October 8, 2013
It’s Literary Arts WeekGBCA in partnership with Free Fall Baltimore, CityLit, and the Maryland State Arts Council kicked off the Week with the grand re-opening of the Poe House.  Readings, walking tours, open mic sessions, and other events are scheduled through October 13.
My tour of members this past week included a walk on the dark, but entertaining side of theatre first with Iron Crow’s Apartment 213 followed by Single Carrot Theatre’s A Beginner’s Guide to Deicide.  (Full disclosure, the stunning star at the Carrot’s show is GBCA’s very own Lauren Saunders!)
Word on the street from Heritage Theatre Artists’ Consortium leader, Harriett Lynn, is that 22 museum theatre professionals came to Baltimore on October 6 from around the country and as far as Greece, Taiwan and Australia for the International Museum Theatre Alliance-Global Conference‘s Pre – Conference Star Spangled Banner Museum Theatre Tour. The tour featured museum theatre with Baltimore School for the Arts, the Maryland Historical Society, and The Jewish Museum of Maryland. A stop at Fort McHenry was also planned, but made impossible due to the partial government shutdown.
The groundbreaking Maryland Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts is at it again. On Saturday, Oct. 26, MdVLA will hold a “Master Class” session aimed at helping law students and young lawyers gain skills in Online Copyright Registration from a highly skilled practitioner.  Importantly, this will be followed by an afternoon free clinic for artists who have a copyright they want to register.
Speaking of hot topics, next Wednesday GBCA will host a session about Health Care for the Creative Class at Baltimore Theatre Project.  Don’t miss this helpful and informative primer on the Affordable Care Act.
All the best,
