This coming Thursday, October 29 marks the kick-off of the 10th Making a Scene Theatre Conference, the annual performing arts think tank hosted by the Greater Vancouver Professional Theatre Alliance. The conference has a new slogan this year: “Theatre Matters”, presumably in response to the current Liberal governments contention that it doesn’t. Indeed, many of the session topics address the new climate here, with a keynote address by George Thorn entitled Walking the Tightrope and sessions such as The Art of Show BUSINESS and Politicking in the New Economy, it’s clear what a lot of the talk will be about.
There’s lots more subjects of discussion, of course, you can read the full line up here. Rebecca and I will once again be holding forth on the potential of Social Media at a breakout session on the Saturday at 1:30.
Please note that registration is required for the full conference or for individual days, you can register online here.
It’s a great chance to connect and network as an industry, and as a community. Hope to see you there!
