StageSource Focuses On ‘Reframing Success’
WBUR’s ARTery is a media sponsor of the fifth biannual StageSource theater conference for the New England area. The conference, which takes place at the American Repertory Theater’s Loeb Drama Center, brings together both theater administrators and theater artists for thought-provoking discussions.
This year’s conference, “Reframing Success,” will feature keynote presentations by motivational speaker Stever Robbins and Julie Hennrikus, executive director of the nonprofit organization StageSource. They’ll both invite audience members to consider what they mean by success and how it is defined for a person in theater.
The all-day conference will also include sessions on such issues as diversity, inclusion and gender parity in the theater; what spaces the local theater community needs, and how to encourage new work. Workshops on financial issues both for individual artists and for theaters, time management and other relevant topics round out the program. The day concludes with a reception, featuring the presentation of the Stage Source Theater Hero Award.
