Arena Stage's FROM SCARCITY TO ABUNDANCE Gets Online Screening, 1/29
As more than 100 new play artists and professionals gather at Arena Stage at the Mead Center for American Theater this week for From Scarcity to Abundance: Capturing the Moment for the New Work Sector, groups have organized in major cities across the country to also join the conversation. All week Arena Stage's #NewPlay TV will stream the major discussions and presentations of the convening online at http://www.livestream.com/newplay, and in partnership with 2AMt, Arena Stage has helped set up viewing parties across the country.
Though the convening will be streamed live all week, the viewing parties are scheduled for the final day of the convening for the organized groups across the country to hear the closing roundtable discussion entitled "Designing Tomorrow: Action Steps," in order to have conversations about how their own communities can get involved in the next steps of new play development. All findings from these communities will be published on the 2AMt blog.
