The Next Frontier: Enhancing the Development Process

May 8, 2018 2:00 pm ET

Join NAMT New Works Director Ciera Iveson and NAMT Associate Member Sharon Fallon as they recap the major takeaways from this year’s Writers’ Roundtable, The Next Frontier: Enhancing the Development Process. At this year’s Writers’ Roundtable, we explored how the musical theatre development landscape is changing, and what we—NAMT Festival Alumni Writers and producers from NAMT member organizations—can do to proactively address the needs of all involved. In this recap, we’ll look at this “Next Frontier” through three different lenses: development program structures and the most effective ways to utilize resources; opportunities to ensure that our processes fully embrace equity, inclusion and diversity considerations; and the creation of safe spaces in development and communication, especially during times of tension and potential conflict.
