ITC Online Conference: Embracing the Challenges of Employment

Tuesday 1 December 10.00am - Thursday 3 December 6.00pm

ITC 2020 Online Conference Announced!

In the performing arts, as soon as you start engaging people you become an employer. Across three days, we are inviting members to explore the experience of employment and the responsibilities of leadership; areas that have become all the more challenging over the past nine months.

Running from the 1st - 3rd of December, participants will have the option to attend as many of the Zoom panel talks and Q&As as they choose. Peer learning and support is at the heart of the ITC community. Many of the sessions will include breakouts with provocations and discussions allowing members to ask and respond to key questions of the moment.

Future Leaders ticket

We want this conference to be useful and interesting for people at all stages of their management career. If you work with a future leader we encourage you to invite them. They could be someone who wouldn’t usually have the opportunity to attend an event like this and who would benefit from the career development. This could be: someone in your organisation; a mentee; an associate artist, freelancer, producer or collaborator. You can purchase the discounted ticket for them or they can take up the offer themselves via you.
