This year’s Fall Conference brought NAMT members together to discuss issues that are vitally important to the growth and survival of our field, the arts in general, and our current political moment. How can we create cultures of inclusion at our theatres — onstage, backstage and in the audience — and engage with our communities to make meaningful work? How do commercial/non-profit partnerships advance new musical theatre and allow for risk? How has the changing nature of social media and discourse affected our programming and our customer service responses? Musical theatre can address important issues or provide an escape — which approach do you take to your season? How can NAMT help deepen relationships among our members to help you as you tackle these topics and more?
Who Attended the Conference
Executive management, artistic directors, new works directors and staff, board members, commercial producers and anyone at your theatre involved with new work development and production. NAMT conferences can also be a great perk for engaged donors who are interested in learning more about how things work behind the scenes! All employees and board members of a member organization are NAMT members!
