ATCA2021 From Where We Sit | ATCA’s second annual virtual meeting
In November 2020, the first year of the still rampant pandemic, ATCA assembled and delivered its first (and wildly successful) virtual conference entitled The Next Normal. This year, through our new website and new payment routines, we will again deliver our annual conference virtually via Zoom and all its bells and whistles. ATCA 2021: From Where We Sit will take place November 13-14, streamed to a laptop near you.
Registration is now available for ATCA members only at this event registration page. You will be asked to sign-in as a member in order to register. Members who have not yet paid their dues for 2021-2022 will need to pay their dues first before they proceed through registration. Costs are $40 through midnight EST November 10, and $50 November 11 through the end of the conference.
There will be two full days of programming. All sessions and meetings will be presented live on Zoom with closed captioning available. Registrants will receive one link per day for events on Saturday and Sunday, November 13-14.
This year, we’re focusing on perspectives — ours, our readers’ and those of the people we write about. Sessions include a conversation with the creative team of Flying Over Sunset, opening on Broadway December 13, and a Perspectives in Criticism talk from former New York Magazine critic and director Sara Holdren. We’ll have panels about what’s coming to regional theaters across the country, how to write about disability onstage, Asian American activism in theater, and a one-on-one with intimacy director Kaja Dunn.
ATCA 2021: From Where We Sit opens at 11 a.m. EST/ 8 a.m. PST on Saturday, November 13. The conference is open to members only. All members, whether registered for the conference or not, are invited to attend the ATCA general meeting at 3 p.m. EST on Saturday. On Sunday, November 14, programming runs from 1-5 p.m. EST.
Can’t make the whole conference? All of those who register will be given a video link to watch the Zoom at a later time. Select sessions will also be made available after the conference on the ATCA YouTube channel. A full schedule with panelists and session descriptions is coming soon. Panelists and topics are subject to change.
