VIBF After Party
April 9, 2022
There's no party like a VIBF after party! This year's party antics will be announced soon so stay tuned as we share the fun ways we will be celebrating the 2022 festival.
In 2020 we included opportunities for the burlesque community to access meaningful ways we can evolve as industry leaders, producers, and teachers. In 2021, we continued this learning by introducing an Anti-Oppression Progressive that will cover topics including:
Fundamentals of Diversity - Equity, and Inclusion
Disrupting Unconscious Bias
Stay tuned post-festival for the remainder of our 2022 progressive anti-oppression workshop schedule!
