Unfettering Artists' Productivity and Impact

2019 TCG National Conference

9:00 AM Jun 4 - 5:00 PM Jun 7, 2019

Topic: Networking/Field Learning

Provider/Presenting Organization: Theatre Comuncations Group



From June 5-7, 2019, TCG will convene nearly 1,000 theatre makers in Miami, each one looking to manage their relationship to ever-present change: in their art, their institutions, and their communities. What can our field, which has long prided itself on its adaptability, learn from a city like Miami, which reinvents itself with each passing decade, neighborhood, and hurricane season? At this year’s National Conference, against the backdrop of Miami’s plurality of global cultures and artistic disciplines, we will focus intently on three programmatic areas: Audience and Community Engagement as part of our continuing Audience (R)Evolution initiative; Well-being and Wellness; and Theatre Journalism. As part of and in parallel to these areas, we will also address our field’s most pressing issues, from the evolving landscape of fundraising, to organizational culture, to leadership development, all while nurturing our field’s growing commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion. Our Conference community will engage with thought leaders from within and beyond the arts to grapple with our own true constant: the challenge of adapting and sustaining our organizations and our work in times of great change.
