Congress Theme: Bridging the Gap
The performing arts have long provided an effective platform for exploring greater societal issues. However, the arts sector itself grapples with the same challenges, including inequities, regional conflict, generational shifts, climate change, and scarcity of funding and training resources. These are just a few of the issues currently at hand. As we recover from years of significant upheaval, how can our sector overcome the gaps that currently exist? By reconciling these gaps in the performing arts, how can we affect positive change on greater society?
