Making a Scene Conference
2021 Making a Scene Forum: Seizing Opportunities
Online June 22–24, 2021
The Greater Vancouver Professional Theatre Alliance's annual conference was re-imagined for 2021 as a digital forum to discuss what post-pandemic, post-now can look like for the theatre industry. Knowing what we know now, after more than a year of reacting, how do we step into possibilities and opportunities with intention?
ASL interpretation and Zoom auto-captioning were provided.
