Creo que no es una gran extensión de la imaginación de nadie decir que cuando escuchamos sus palabras o las leemos en la página, nos emocionamos hasta las lágrimas. Pero, cuando te encuentras con ella en persona y descubres que ella es tan increíble como su trabajo, aun el creador de teatro más experimentado puede ser un poco deslumbrado. Esta es solo una de las muchas razones por las que estamos tan entusiasmados de que Quiara Alegría Hudes se unirá con nosotros en la Conferencia Nacional de este año. Quiara no solo es una dramaturgia, sino que también es una de las líderes de pensamiento en la vanguardia de nuestro campo, que nos obliga a enfrentarnos con ...

As an emerging leader in the theatre (at least that’s what everyone tells me I am) I’m constantly at the intersection of utilizing my financial resources to advance my career or cover my basic needs or have a social life or...or...or.

Here are my top five tips to make conference happen for you (on a budget): REGISTRATION FEES There are a few ways to tackle this particular area. The most readily available one I would suggest is through our scholarships and subsidies application . Scholarships are available ...

Congratulations to Jackie Sibblies Drury for winning the 2019 Pulitzer Prize for Drama for her play Fairview ! The Pulitzer committee praised Fairview as a “hard-hitting drama that examines race in a highly conceptual, layered structure, ultimately bringing audiences into the actors’ community to face deep-seated prejudices.” TCG Books is thrilled to announce the forthcoming publication of Fairview in July. TCG Books will also be publishing Pulitzer finalist What the Constitution Means to Me by Heidi Schreck, forthcoming this fall. We are so excited to be publishing the work of these talented playwrights! #TCG

I think it is no great stretch of anyone's imagination to say that when we hear her words or read them on the page we are moved to tears. But, when you meet her in person and find that she is as amazing as her work, even the most seasoned theatre maker can get a little star struck. This is just one of the many reasons we are so excited that Quiara Alegría Hudes will be joining us at the National Conference this year. Quiara is not only a playwright, she is also one of the thought leaders at the forefront of our field, forcing us all to hold a mirror up to ourselves and see where our work can be better. It’s been said that “ Quiara’s in touch with spirits ...

Dear Friends, I'm so excited to launch TCG's search for our next Director of Individual Giving and Special Events . Over the past two years, TCG has realigned its fundraising efforts and department into two separate and distinct areas: one area focused on all foundation, corporation and sponsorship activities; and the other focused on raising funds through individual giving and special events. We've seen incredible growth and engagement through this structure. The Director should have a passion for TCG's mission, vision, and values; and an entrepreneurial and self-starter spirit to fulfill it. With the current team and structure in place, we've growth ...

Ever since I started working with the Wallace Foundation, I'd heard about Magda Martinez. The impact of her work is beautifully chronicled in Staying Relevant in a Changing Neighborhood: How Fleisher Art Memorial is Adapting to Shifting Community Demographics . So I was thrilled when Magda agreed to join a session I was designing for the 2018 Fall Forum. And as she shared with powerful eloquence how organizational change really happens, it became clear we had nowhere near enough time.  Well, folx, now we have time. I'm thrilled to share that Magda Martinez, now the COO of Mural Arts Philadelphia, is joining us for a featured webinar on her work! Here are ...

It’s now available as a podcast and archived video here . This provocative conversation will surely continue at the 2019 TCG National Conference in Miami , as well. Earlier this week we announced the launch of the fourth round of the Rising Leaders of Color (RLC) program. This round will provide a cohort of exceptionally ...

Carlos Celdrán and Indigenous Direction Offer World Theatre Day Messages On the 71st Anniversary of the International Theatre Institute “When I understood that the theatre was a country in itself, a major territory that covers the whole world, a determination arose within me, which was also the realisation of a freedom: you do not have to go far away, or move from where you are, you do not have to run or move yourself. The public is wherever you exist. You have the colleagues you need at your side. There, outside your house, you have all the opaque, impenetrable daily reality.” - Carlos Celdrán , Cuban stage director, playwright ...
