About the event

Industry Stages is where people in theatre - artists, presenters, producers, funders, and supporters - come together to make things happen. Our goal is simple: connect people, encourage collaboration, and share visions for the future. We want to make theatre better by working together.

Here's what we're focusing on this year:

  • Uniting Theatre Makers: We're creating a place for everyone in theatre to work together. Whether you're organizing festivals, making art, or leading in the industry, this is where you can take risks and support each other.
  • Igniting Artistic Development: We're about helping the theatre community grow and innovate. Expect opportunities to learn, collaborate, and network.
  • Empowering the Future of Theatre: We want to help artists excel. We're here to support your growth and impact through talks, mentorship, and various opportunities.
  • Facilitating Collaboration and Partnerships: We aim to get people working together. By building a collaboration network, we can make a difference.

There are keynote talks intended to inspire, enlighten and inform. Networking sessions like Walk & Talk and Field Trip forge personal connections that deepen relationships. Our featured sessions, like Pitch Room, enable new ideas to flourish.

A key component of Industry Stages is the Producer’s Cohort. These guest producers are carefully curated and actively contribute to our gathering’s values and objectives. They will play a significant role in empowering artists and fostering connections to bolster artists’ efforts to export and expand their reach.

The Industry Stages program is designed around exchange and is open to various participation levels so you can engage comfortably. All the events listed in the program are below:
