With a renewed focus on equity, diversity, and inclusion, the 25th conference brought together the nation’s theatremakers to share strategies and challenges, as well as drinks and laughs.
This week’s guest is chairman of the NEA Jane Chu, who discusses arts funding and ‘South Pacific.’ Plus, highlights from the TCG National Conference in Cleveland and a discussion of the new Kilroy’s list.
She comes from a large family of theatremakers. Is it any wonder she makes family, and theatre, everywhere she goes, from Cultural Odyssey to the California’s prisons?
The TCG conference closed with a panel of artistic leaders discussing artistic risk vs. institution-building, and feted two dedicated field veterans, Rhodessa Jones and Jim O’Quinn.
Conference attendees listened to one of America’s great listeners, StoryCorps’ Dave Isay, as he shared both how he captures people’s lives on tape—and why it’s worth doing.
Access and daring, expression and dramatic action were among the themes of a meaty morning plenary with ‘Fun Home’ writer Lisa Kron and NEA chairman Jane Chu.
At the opening gathering of Theatre Communications Group’s 2015 National Conference, the topics include race, Cleveland, and performance by any means necessary.
At the TCG National Conference this week, James Houghton, Lear deBessonet and Rhodessa Jones will be recognized for their theatrical achievements.
