The 2020 Virtual Conference will be hosted online through Open Water, a virtual event platform that utilizes ZOOM meetings/webinars. Conference registrants will be able to share research, artistry, pedagogy, and scholarship.

Typically, the annual ATHE conference brings together a global community of educators, artists, and administrators through workshops, panel presentations, all-conference discussions, social events, and performances. This year, we're moving online to support the multiple needs of our members, including responding to the present moment; providing space for presentation and feedback; and conducting the annual business of the organization.

A mix of "webinar-style" plenaries aimed at our full membership community and concurrent sessions (either live or pre-recorded), the conference will engage ATHE members over the course of two weeks. In addition, members will have the opportunity to chat virtually, post on discussion boards to exchange ideas, and visit sponsors in an online exhibitor gallery.


We will also be adding Workshops, including Tectonic Theater Project and Nicole Brewer. We will list those events separately for registration soon!
