Press Release

I'm the President of the American Alliance for Theatre & Education (AATE) and I am asking you to join us for AATE's 29th National Conference in Boston, Massachusetts, July 27 - 31, 2016.

In the city with a complex history of race relations and activism, we’ll engage in provocative dialogues about diversity and inclusion to move forward on multiple fronts. Join us as we bring some of Boston's most renowned cultural, historic, and civic sites to life through the dynamic medium of theatre. Interact with characters from the past in order to understand the present and build a better future. The Freedom Trial, Museum of Fine Arts, Swan Boats, Shakespeare on the Common, and a historic pub crawl await!

Our keynote speakers include Ali Stroker who made history as the first actress in a wheelchair to appear on a Broadway stage, where she originated the role of Anna in Deaf West's 2015 revival of SPRING AWAKENING. The dynamic visual and performance artist, Vanessa German, is the founder of Love Front Porch and the ARThouse, a community arts initiative for children, created to stack the deck in matters of justice, worth and healing. She recently presented TED talks at Harvard and MIT and she has been featured on CBS Sunday Morning and NPR’s All Things Considered. Finally, master teaching artist Paige Hernandez will share her successful hip-hop arts integration strategies. Paige will speak to the history of hip-hop, it's natural curriculum connections and how it's style can encourage inclusion and cultural diversity with any demographic​. This keynote is interactive and features a special performance for attendees.

I would love to see all of you there- the non-member registration includes a 1-year membership to AATE, plus a new member benefit called "Add-A-Voice" where you can bring a colleague for FREE (see details online). Follow this link for more information: www.aate.com/2016.
