 JCTC Conversations: Voices From Around The World is an interactive experience featuring performances, interviews & discussion. Participating artists range from poets & spoken-word artists to actors, dancers & musicians – all performing live from their homes – and home studios – followed by conversations with moderators, artists and of course the live, virtual audiences.

JCTC launched the series in April, with an outpouring of support from both artists and audiences. Artists and performers from many disciplines have submitted proposals for upcoming episodes, increasing the diversity of performers – as well as country and cultures represented. 

“We are all living through a dark and difficult time, but with JCTC Conversations: Voices From Around The World, we can see how at least we’re not going through this alone,” said Olga Levina, Artistic Director of Jersey City Theater Center (JCTC) and host of JCTC Conversations: Voices From Around The World. “Artists and audiences are not just members of their local networks, but are part of a global community. We want everyone to stay tuned, stay connected, stay healthy and join the conversation.” 

JCTC welcomes artists from all genres to submit proposals for upcoming episodes of JCTC Conversations: Voices From Around The World, although it’s recommended that participants view the live broadcast of an episode before submitting. Send submissions/proposals to Olga@JCTCenter.org
