Since 1998, IMTAL conferences have recognized and supported the best in museum theatre innovation and practice.
These meetings of museum and theatre professionals from around the world have advanced the field of museum theatre, helping to encourage growth of new programs as well as best practices and high quality work. Veteran practitioners, emerging professionals, academics and students come together to impel and inspire each other.
With a cutting-edge call to Get Critical: Forging the Future of Museum Theatre, this year’s conference
offered a range of professional learning opportunities, from performances and plenary sessions, workshops and demonstrations to professional debates and networking occasions.
Thank you to everyone who attended for making this such an amazing and inspiring conference --
we hope to see you again next year!
