National Digital Challenges Conference
Presented and hosted by Presentation House Theatre in association with the Vancouver International Children’s Festival
Today’s young people are born into digital media and move naturally between real and virtual worlds. Theatre must respond to this new reality to sustain their interest and involvement, and ensure strong, connected future audiences.
In June 2019, with the assistance of the Digital Strategies Program of the Canada Council, Presentation House Theatre (PHT) will host the national DIGITAL CHALLENGES CONFERENCE to examine how the ongoing digital revolution is impacting young audiences in Canada.
In this two-day symposium, representatives from Canadian and international theatre companies will meet at PHT to discuss new ideas, share innovations, and explore how our industry engages with digital technology to better understand and address our young audiences.
The conference will include showcase performances of select new works by local theatre artists. Showcases will be open to the public.
Contact 604.990.3473 for more details.
The conference will take place at Presentation House Theatre, 333 Chesterfield Avenue, North Vancouver.
