The Stage has announced that it will host a three-day Future of Theatre conference from 16-18 June 2021, bringing together voices from across the whole UK theatre sector as the performing arts prepares to return post-lockdown.
Future of Theatre will be based around five topics; Community and Audience, Shows and Artistic Practice, Money and Finance, The Built Environment and The Workforce. Aimed at industry professionals but also available to The Stage subscribers, there will also be opportunities for attendees to engage in conversation and gain access to key industry leaders, innovators and suppliers.
The conference’s panels, interviews and presentations will address onstage and offstage topics across commercial, subsidised and not-for-profit theatre.
Alistair Smith, editor of The Stage, said “this has been an extraordinarily difficult year for theatre. It will have changed the performing arts dramatically, permanently and possibly in ways none of us realise yet.
“As an independent voice for the whole of the performing arts in the UK, The Stage is in the unique position of being able to bring together theatremakers of all different types from across the industry to discuss what the future of the sector could and should be. This is a vital conversation and a pivotal time for those of us who hope to help theatre bounce back even better than before.”
Tickets will be available from Spring 2021, and can be found through The Stage‘s website.
