Hot Topics

Got a hot topic, issue or challenge that you’re dying to chat about with your peers? Could be an organizational challenge that you’re in the middle of, or maybe an article that has you riled that was posted on FB, or an interesting idea that has come up on your caucus calls and you would like to hear more about how to make it happen! Maybe it’s an area you need some guidance or reference on best practice, or could be something you’ve gone through at your company and think others would benefit from hearing about.

Hot Topics is that place for you! Watch for our short list on topics that have bubbled up to the surface or e-mail us your suggestions for something you want to lead or at least participate in.

Wednesday, November 22 – 1:00 – 2:00 PM EST (please adjust for your own time zone)

HOT TOPICS The World Theater Map Initiative – A project by HowlRound: A knowledge commons by and for the theatre community.

With Vijay Mathew, Cultural Strategist, HowlRound.

HowlRound is a non-profit knowledge commons by and for the theatre community based at Emerson College in Boston, Massachusetts. We are a free and open platform that amplifies progressive, disruptive ideas about the art form and facilitates connection between diverse practitioners. One way we aim to connect the global theatre community is through a new free and open tool called the World Theatre Map. We created the World Theatre Map to try and solve a consistent and persistent problem in the theatre field— the isolation between theatre-makers and practice, especially across national borders.

Theatre knowledge is often limited to how “connected” one is within the field, or else it’s information diffuse or behind a paywall. We wanted to make something that could connect theatre-makers to each other absent of hierarchy or resource, and that could share information openly about what theatre is happening where and when, as well as information about the creative teams behind the work. The result is the first version of The World Theatre Map, which launched in January and is currently in a public beta period.
