As we close out 2020, a new year dawns with the hope of a brighter, more optimistic tomorrow. The American Theatre Wing wants to empower Artists and Theatre Makers everywhere to not only continue aspiring and dreaming, but to also create a plan and make those dreams into reality. But what is the difference between dreaming and planning?
For this Network meeting, attendees will discover their planning style, learn the different obstacles that act as barriers to achieving goals, and harness their dreams and passions by creating practical, achievable plans to turn them into reality. Theatre Artist and Educator Lauren Jost will lead attendees in breakout sessions to help apply these goal setting skills. Come prepared to participate! With 2021 only weeks away, The Wing wants to ensure that Network attendees can confidently set strong goals, measure progress, and continue to transform the world through artistry.
