LMDA unveils new “Case study and conversation” conference call series

Launching October 16!

 

LMDA’s “Case study and conversation” series is an every-other-month chance to talk shop and trade notes with other dramaturgs on the central concerns and vital issues of the field. This series will provide a chance to connect with peers and practitioners from across the nation. Each call, a dramaturg will share a short, 10-15 minute case study about a recent project, followed by a broader discussion of the field-wide issues raised by that topic. What can we learn from each other, and how can we do what we do better? .
