Event description

Description


You work in theatre in NSW. Welcome to your gathering.

Join your NSW theatre industry peers for an afternoon of talks, workshops and networking, led by Sydney Festival Director, Wesley Enoch, and featuring the inaugural State of NSW Theatre address by acclaimed playwright Suzie Miller.

NSW’s theatre industry is the largest of any Australian state or territory. Its diversity is limitless, and its power to transform continues to reveal new insights into the hopes, dreams and realities of Australia and its people. Each year, thousands of NSW theatre workers consider their place in the world and their industry.

Open to all NSW theatre workers, this Gathering has been developed as an opportunity for you to connect with your industry peers in a collegial space. Together with theatre advisory groups, we will share and refine ways to advance the stories of our industry, celebrate our achievements, and progress our ideas, needs and values.

The NSW Theatre Gathering is the inaugural annual NSW theatre industry event hosted by Theatre Network NSW (TNN), the state’s peak agency for theatre.

Tickets free for TNN members, or $35 for Non-Members* (*Get free entry by becoming a TNN member for $30 a year, with additional benefits: https://tnn.org.au/membership/)
