Lessing Week 2022 is just around the corner!

Lessing Week 2022 will be Saturday, January 22-Saturday, January 29, 2022. Our goal is to raise $2,000 to be used for ECD travel grants! On January 22, 2022, Gotthold Ephraim Lessing – the world’s first dramaturg -- would have turned 293! Every year, to celebrate his birthday, LMDA holds a fundraiser to fund our annual Early Career Dramaturg travel grants.

BroadwayWorld has published a feature on the Call for Proposals for our 2022 Conference and December Airline Miles Drive. LMDA President Bryan Moore says, "For over 35 years, LMDA has grown to become a multi-country service organization for artists working as dramaturgs and in many associated fields in the performing arts and beyond. Our most recent conference in Mexico City, had the theme of 'Crossing Borders' encouraged dramaturgs to meet and learn from colleagues from different cultures and regions to develop skills and expand the field," said LMDA President Bryan Moore.
