Women+ in Theatre Conference

Women+ in Theatre Conference



The sixth annual Women+ in Theatre Conference is FREE and virtual and will be held on August 14, 2021. This year's conference theme is Transforming to an Anti-Racist Theatre. We are excited to welcome Nicole M. Brewer, founder of Anti-Racist Theatre, who will tackle questions on how we move forward in transforming theatre to be a liberated place for all.

Additional sessions for the day  include a keynote breakdown, featuring panelists and open group discussion; Shirley's Speed Networking; Project Sharing, an open discussion of how the pandemic has changed our industry; Virtual Performances from the winners of our contest; and a Happy Hour. Registrants will also have the opportunity to register in our online directory by sharing their contact information.

Hosted by Rep Stage, the mission of the Women+ in Theatre Conference is to provide an opportunity for women+ theatre practitioners to network with one another and develop strategies that further the cause of gender equity within the industry and beyond. We continue to honor the memory of our friend and committee member, Dr. Shirley Basfield Dunlap by continuing this work.

Thank you to our friends at Parlights! This year's conference is made possible through their generous support.
