[friendsofbroadside] Fwd: Uban Theater Conference Saturday, 23 June 2012

Concept East Theater was a seminal Detroit little theater developed in 1962 which produced original plays by local playwrights as part of the cultural arts movement of the 60s and 70s.  Detail information is available on the CET facebook group site from the listed references.
Our meetings are open planning sessions in preparation for our theater/film/video production conference scheduled to be held, Saturday, 23 June 2012 at the International Institute located in Detroit's cultural center.
We invite you to publish our memo listed below in the next edition of your newsletter.  We also ask you to circulate information about our project to your colleagues interested in the performing arts for their input and support.  The development of theater/film/video is crucial to the quality of life and the educational and employment opportunities of Detroit and Michigan residents and those in your community.
