Every year since 2010, the Pride Youth Theater Alliance invites directors, educators, artists and activists to come together for week of workshops, sessions, and events focusing on best practices in queer youth theater.

 

The Queer Youth Theater Conference is not a typical conference where a select group of experts in the field deliver seminars to an audience; this is an event in which everyone is a leader and will contribute to the collective experience, both in planning and content. The conference is designed to allow for peer to peer learning and requires a high level of participation from everyone attending. All participants come ready to share the story of their organization, their work, and their expertise.
