Opportunities for Workshops Overseas
A number of workshops are in the planning stages – for young critics (usually defined as working critics under the age of 35) and for more established critics. They would be held under the auspices of the International Association of Theatre Critics (IATC), membership in which is an automatic benefit of membership in ATCA. Final details and application processes have not yet been announced, but ATCA’s Executive Committee wanted to get the word to the membership ASAP so members who might be interested in attending any one of the workshops can check their schedules and watch for the formal announcements which will be posted on ATCA’s website as soon as they are made public. During its spring meeting in Norrköping, Sweden, IATC’s Executive Committee reviewed plans for young critics workshops in Wuzhen, China and Pune, India as well as possible programs in Romania and Georgia this fall (October or November). There was also discussion of an experienced critics program focusing on William Shakespeare in Limoges, France in June of 2018.
