2019 National Conference: MIAMI
From June 5-7, 2019, TCG convened nearly 900 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 focused 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 also addressed 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 engaged with thought leaders from within and beyond the arts (like plenary speakers Edwidge Danticat, Wesley Morris, and Quiara Alegría Hudes) to grapple with our own true constant: the challenge of adapting and sustaining our organizations and our work in times of great change.
