(February 28, 2016) Since I checked in last, the team has shifted their focus from day-to-day projects to visioning for the future. At the moment, we’re setting fundraising goals, writing grants, and planning for the next Volume, which begins in the spring/summer.

We also recently had our Volume 6 Retreat, where all of the Makers from across the country meet for half a day. There was lots of brainstorming and talk of the future, with questions like: what should SpiderWebShow look like next Volume, next year, in 5 years? What should it do for the community, locally and nationally? How do we make our work more accessible, and more like a game? It was a so refreshing to be able to sit with the team for a few hours and focus our energies. There are so many brilliant thinkers in the group, and having the opportunity to watch them think through tough questions is a gift in itself. The retreat was certainly motivating for me.
And now Volume 6 is over! What does that mean? Well, the team takes a 2 month break, and then starts up again in the summer.
The next application deadline for the Professional Theatre Training Program is October 1, 2016.
