There’s lots of activity around the 9th Performing the World conference/happening to be held in New York City Friday, September 23 through Sunday, September 25, 2016. Proposals are due February 21, so please help spread the word (and get your proposals in)!
I’ve heard from PTW old timers who are designing sessions across disciplines and across national boundaries. And from people who’ve just heard of PTW and think it’s the placefor them to be. Both are exciting! And so important at a time of such ideological polarization and people insisting they have The Truth.
PTW is a gathering in which to explore and celebrate performance as a catalyst for human and community development and culture change—and thereby, create a new and more humane world. We welcome proposals that relate to this theme from a variety of perspectives, practices, disciplines and settings.
We invite participation from performers and performance scholars, psychologists and social workers, physicians and nurses, educators and youth workers, community organizers and activists, and all others for whom performance offers a new kind of tool in their human development, community building and political organizing work.
Please spread the word! And let me know who you’ve reached.
