President's Welcome
Douglas Coler, IMTAL President

Welcome to the website of the International Museum Theatre Alliance.

This is our online home. Our permanent home is where you are, wherever you are presenting compelling, entertaining, educational, thought provoking programs. You are IMTAL.

And because you are IMTAL, we want to hear your voices . Please share your questions, your solutions, your triumphs, your tragedies, your stories. Above all, your stories. The human need to have stories told and to hear stories is what makes museum theatre important to both the museum world and the theatre world. Theatre and theatrical technique, in a museum setting, connects us to our common experience, deepens our understanding of the new, the unfamiliar, and the different, and inspires introspection, curiosity, and action. 

If you like what you see here, please join us. We welcome practitioners from across the museum spectrum. We publish Insights, a quarterly magazine, and we offer a variety of workshops and events throughout the year. Most importantly, perhaps, we offer a way to stay connected to your fellow museum theatre professionals. If you're so inclined, follow us on Twitter or join in our Facebook and LinkedIn discussions.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact me, or any member of our board of directors.

Thanks for visiting. I hope to see you soon.
