Save the date: OTW Sessions 2018 will be at at IPAY in Philadelphia, PA, January 23-27.
This year, TYA/USA will join forces with IPAY (International Performing Arts for Youth) for the first time at IPAY’s 40th Anniversary Showcase, in Philadelphia in January 2018! This collaboration brings together two strong like-minded organizations dedicated to serving and supporting a diverse field with the belief in the importance of great art for young people. This unique partnership will unite a large cross-section of the field and deepen national and international conversations. It will also give the TYA/USA membership a chance to see a sampling of the best in family programming from abroad.
More details to be announced soon, but a few highlights include:
•TYA/USA will offer a special pre-conference OTW: Sessions Event that will offer a dynamic dialogue between leaders from both Presenting and Producing Venues to explore the relationship and potential collaborations between these two distinct worlds.
•TYA/USA will collaborate in curating IPAY’s learning and networking platform Kindling, expanding the conversation by continuing to diversify the eco-system of artists, practitioners, producers, presenters, educators dedicated to performing arts for young audiences.
We hope you’ll join us in Philly in the beginning of the new year. Watch this space for more information on programming details and registration.
