2016 Conference 

Why Not Theatre in association with Artistic Directors of the Future presents ThisGEN. 

A gathering of like-minded artists from around the world who are leaders within their own communities.  People who are making changes in their communities through theatre and pushing the form creatively. In August 2016, we will bring people together to have a conversation, build an international network and engage with the question “What’s next for the theatre?”  What’s next for playwriting?  For directing? For the role theatre plays in responding to crisis?  

Lets talk about the art we are making around the world and look for ways to develop ideas that can help us to push the art we make forward.

This four day summit will take place in Toronto, Canada, consisting of an intimate group of artists from Canada, America, United Kingdom, Egypt, Turkey, Rwanda and Nigeria. We will also be joined by guest speakers from Canada, America and the UK. 

This event is supported by Canada Council for the Arts. 



Working in Partnership

Artistic Directors of the Future was invited to become a partner with the Bush Theatre on their forthcoming project 'This Place We Know'. Through this exciting partnership, ADF will appoint two ADF associates to direct a commissioned short play which will be performed in borrowed spaces along the Uxbridge Road.
