Why are we meeting in Milwaukee, Wisconsin?

We have strategically chosen to meet in the Great Lakes Region as a way of engaging both coasts as well as the wide swath of regional theaters scattered across the states. Milwaukee has a rich arts and culture scene and is also home to theaters like Milwaukee Repertory Company, Acacia Theatre Company, Boulevard Theatre, First Stage, Milwaukee Chamber Theatre, Next Act Theatre, Skylight Music Theatre, Renaissance Theaterworks, and many more. We are thrilled to announce that Renaissance Theaterworks is partnering with Statera Foundation to host the 2018 Statera National Conference for gender parity in the theatre.

 

About Renaissance TheaterWorks

Renaissance Theaterworks was founded in 1993. The founding members recognized a gender imbalance within professional theater, and sought to correct it by producing excellent theatrical work while actively promoting the careers of other women in professional theater. In 2001, Renaissance hired Julie Swenson as Producing Director. Together, their founders, staff, and vibrant Board of Directors have grown Renaissance and achieve the artistic and fiscal success the company celebrates today. Statera Foundation is proud to hold our third National Conference for Gender Balance at Renaissance Theaterworks in celebration of their 25th Anniversary Season. Learn more about their their work for gender parity HERE
