Who: OTEA – theatre educators from around Oregon

What: A day-long conference including discussions, workshop sessions, and social/networking opportunities!

Where: Hallmark Resort Hotel, Newport OR

Why: This is Oregon’s only statewide professional development focused solely on theatre education.

How Much: $65 for OTEA Members; $75 for Non-Members

Our goal is our work together be both rejuvenating and worthy of your time and energy. In your survey topic responses, we heard two needs, loud and clear:

1. Continue our work in EDI (Equity,Diversity and Inclusion) and Advocacy on a school/troupe/state level.

2. Time to cover curricula, troupe & show resources and strategies, through networking.

Both needs will be covered during our time together for Professional Development.

Please note: Dog owners – yes, you can bring your furry friend. Sadly, they are not permitted to stay in-room without you and we respectfully request they not be at the workshop (we need to be sensitive to allergies, etc). Last year, dog owners did a great job of co-oping with spouses and partners to give the pups a great day on the beach. Thank you for understanding!
