The Conference will be packed with round table discussions, networking events, tours of The Santa Fe Opera complex, and informative presentations including surprising new concepts in projection design/technology for outdoor performances and creating/presenting site specific theatre pieces.

Provocative roundtable discussions will cover topics from, creating new content for outdoor theatres, to ideas to foster alternative income, to brainstorming on a variety of operational and artistic challenges that theatres are facing.

We’ll enjoy creative inspiration by way of a tour of Meow Wolf, an immersive storytelling experience and exhibition which has interactive performance elements.

Tours of The Santa Fe Opera facilities will explore and share the recently completed $38M renovations and improvements that are benefiting audience members, theatre staff, the environment and the local community.
