Past Forward: 2017 NET National Gathering & Symposium

The Network of Ensemble Theaters is headed to Seattle for our first national event in the Pacific Northwest!

In partnership with our local host, University of Washington’s School of Drama,
Past Forward: 2017 NET National Gathering & Symposium will bring together NET members, artists, practitioners, educators, scholars, students, activists, organizers, community partners, funders, policy makers, and others with an interest in collaborative creation across disciplines and sectors. Join the national ensemble field in Seattle this summer (June 22-25, 2017) for performances, workshops, discussions, panels, networking, local site visits, and more!

Founded in the mid-1990s by a small group of ensemble theaters, NET has grown and matured over the last two decades into a vibrant national community of 350+ member ensembles, affiliate organizations, individuals, and students from multiple performance disciplines. To celebrate NET’s past 20+ years of expanding ensemble practice, 

Past Forward will honor the diversity of the ensemble movement’s powerful legacy and collectively imagine our way to what’s next. We’ll explore the ever-evolving, multi-strand threads of our shared ensemble lineage from our beginnings into the beyond, tracing our footprints as we co-create a more expansive, equitable, inclusive path forward together.

Proposals for sessions are now open and will be accepted until March 1, 2017 March 13, 2017.  

Registration for the event will open in March.
In addition to seeking formal Session Proposals for Past Forward, we are also interested in hearing any ideas you have for the event What’s on your mind? What are some topics or burning issues you want to discuss with peers at the gathering/symposium in June? What do you want to learn about?
What haven’t we thought about, that we should be?
