Our Adjudicators Symposium has been scheduled for Saturday, October 14 from 10:00am to 4:00pm at the Theatre Ontario office in Toronto. Registrations are now open.
As has become tradition, the Symposium will open with a discussion of “The Past Year of Adjudication.” Adjudicators who were engaged at community theatre festivals in 2016/17 are invited to share their experiences.
In the “Adjudication Techniques Roundtable”, we will discuss strategies for approaching areas of adjudication. Two suggestions have come forward already:
- Adjudicator-Director conversations in adjudications
- Adjudicating Intimacy
Further suggestions for topics are invited, as well.
We will also have breakout sessions to discuss “Broader Issues and Big Ideas in Adjudication.” So far, we have three conversation starters:
- Articulating the Value of Adjudication and Why We Adjudicate
- Connecting Adjudicators and Prospective Engagers
- Adjudicator Membership and Involvement in Community Theatres and Productions
Again, suggestions for other topics is appreciated.
