Statera National Conference  |  OCT. 2016

Join us for the 2nd annual Statera National Conference in Denver, CO from October 14 - 16, 2016, at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts (DCPA). Meet with theatre professionals from all over the country for three days of networking, socializing, experience-sharing, theatre-going and more! The Statera conference is all about gender balance and our goal is to take action to bring women into full and equal participation in the American theatre. The registration deadline is October 1, 2016. 

 

Why are we meeting in Denver, Colorado?

We have strategically chosen to meet in the center of the country as a way of engaging both coasts as well as the wide swath of regional theaters scattered across the states. The Mile High City has a rich arts and culture scene and is also home to our nation's largest repertory theatre, The Denver Center. We are thrilled to announce that the Denver Center for the Performing Arts is partnering with Statera Foundation to host the 2016 Statera National Conference for gender parity in the theatre.

 

Who will be there?

Statera Conference is open to all theatre professionals, practitioners, students and enthusiasts regardless of gender or age: administrators, designers, dramaturgs, educators, technicians, actors, advocates, spouses, etc. Conference key note speakers, workshop leaders, and breakout session facilitators are listed HERE. We'll be updating this list in the days ahead so be sure to check back. Until then, here's a taste of the line up below:
