WORKSHOPS & initiatives

At the GVPTA, we take on a variety of initiatives in assistance of our members and industry. 


In partnership with PACT, the Belfry Theatre, and Boca del Lupo, GVPTA presented a two-day Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) Workshop in November 2017.

Attended by leaders of 20 theatre organizations, the workshop was lead by Michele deCottignies, founder and artistic director of Stage Left Productions, with a purpose to: develop an understanding and common language to discuss EDI amongst our peers and in the community; and explore practical steps for individuals and organizations to break down barriers and open space for equity-seeking communities.

The Theatre Engagement Project was supported by

The Greater Vancouver Professional Theatre Alliance (GVPTA) strives to strengthen the local theatre industry. We do this through providing services, promotion of member news and community events, opportunities to connect and network, and our annual theatre conference. Together with our members we are raising the profile of local theatre and building community.

At GVPTA, we acknowledge that our organization is located on the unceded territories of the Coast Salish peoples of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
