2021 Theatre Summit: Re-Imagining Resources



August 3-4, 10am-7pm

An opportunity for theatre makers in the Washington area to hold virtual space together over a two-day period.

The 2021 Summit will offer two keynote speakers, panels and sessions, affinity spaces, resting spaces, and one-on-one mentoring. It was planned with the input from over 200 survey respondents and the Summit Committee.

For each registered attendee at the 2021 Summit, $1 will be donated to THEARC Theater’s iCan Technical Theater Internship Program, providing out of school time education to support career development for African American Youth residing east of the Anacostia River. The interns talents and desire to learn varying areas of the production arts has been essential in shaping the program curriculum and activities.
