Simon Fraser University School for the Contemporary Arts
New Campus in Downtown
June 27-30, 2013
LMDA welcomed you to Vancouver for four days of insightful conversation and discovery.
LMDA’s Annual conference, Adapting to Change: Creative Response in the Terminal City, welcomed over 100 dramaturgs, literary managers, and theatre practitioners from across North America to Vancouver, June 27th- 30th, 2013. Sited at the new Vancouver SFU School for the Contemporary Arts campus in historic downtown Vancouver, the conference brought together multiple perspectives on transformation and adapting to change – at the individual, institutional, and cultural level. The conference took advantage of the tensions of its downtown site, and offered opportunities to experience Gastown and the Downtown Eastside through a creative lens. The role of dramaturgs and cultural institutions in leading and responding to change was the focus of the conference programming.
