A4’s new professional development series brings together experts in specific arts disciplines with aspiring professionals in a roundtable setting to dish out career advice, foster candid discussions, and create networking and mentoring opportunities.
The first event will focus on the field of theater, giving aspiring, emerging, and mid-career professionals the opportunity to meet with and learn from established artistic directors, actors, directors, theater designers, playwrights, and producers.
The event will take place from 6:30-8:30pm in our offices at 20 Jay Street in DUMBO and be composed of three 30-minute sessions. Small groups of 3-5 participants will be assigned to a total of 3 different tables. Professionals will remain at the same table while individual participants will move around every 30 minutes to meet with different leaders to ask questions, learn about different opportunities, and make industry connections.
There is a $15 nonrefundable fee to register. Please sign up HERE and list your top three preferences for networking sessions. Due to the number of participants, we cannot guarantee matches, but the earlier you apply, the better your chances.
