MUMBAI: Screen Actors Guild (SAG) has joined hands with Robert Redford Enterprises and the state of New Mexico for its Diversity Acting Workshops.
The invitation-only event is part of Milagro at Los Luceros, whose mission is to create and expand training programs in film, arts, and the environment, concentrating on Hispanic, Native American, African American and other underrepresented voices. Both in the audience and on stage, up-and-coming talent will have the chance to learn from their assembled mentors in an appropriate setting, the Institute of American Indian Arts, which offers a growing new media arts program.
“Our mission with this program is to support underrepresented and underemployed performers, helping them gain equal employment access and opportunities in the entertainment industry. Programs like our Diversity Acting Workshops do just that,” said SAG president Ken Howard.
"I am very pleased to reunite with my good friend Robert Redford as we embark on this partnership with Milagro at Los Luceros to create and expand training programs for Hispanic, Native American and African American talent in the entertainment industry. I look forward to participating because diverse yet underrepresented voices need to be heard and integrated into our American Scene,” says SAG national board member Ed Harris.
