On Thursday, May 14, Playwrights Guild of Canada is hosting two Professional Development opportunities in the Harmony Hall at the Quality Hotel and Conference Centre.

1pm – 2pm - Two Separate Sessions

Session One – Canadian Plays in Community Theatres

Rebecca Burton, Membership and Professional Contracts Manager for Playwrights Guild of Canada, will provide producing regional and community theatres with examples of the services PGC offers.  Everyone welcome!

Session Two – Community Theatre/Playwright Exchange

This professional development exercise connects playwrights and community theatre practitioners by giving all participants an opportunity to talk briefly about what kind of work inspires them and what they are currently working on artistically. This moderated discussion is designed to ignite a passionate discuss and encourage future collaboration. Space is limited in Session Two and pre-registration is mandatory to participate. Email for more information.

2pm to 3pm - Networking and Wine

Those who participated in either session one or two are invited to stick around for an informal gathering hosted by PGC. Join us for further conversation, camaraderie, and collaboration.
