Performance has always been about how the work affects people. Now we are ready to tackle how our performances can promote a more sustainable world.

Staging Sustainability will be the largest gathering of performing arts and sustainability leaders in the world, bringing together practitioners from across Canada, Broadway, LA, the UK – and points in between.

Developed by peers with your needs and interests in mind, Staging Sustainability is your chance to be inspired by what the future might hold for the Canadian performance scene, to take up today’s opportunities with the latest technology, and to learn from case studies of organizations like yours that have creatively addressed our shared challenges.

For artistic and technical leaders, it will be an unparalleled opportunity to network with peers, learn about the latest money-saving practices and initiatives for arts facilities, reinventing how we make and tech shows, the changing roles of designers and programmers, creating a sustainable audience experience, and integrating innovation into often aging systems.

Technical directors participating in Staging Sustainability will come away with ideas and best practices to address key questions including:

  • How do managers and production staff integrate sustainable practice into performance and events?
  • How is sustainable thinking changing the way we make and tech shows?
  • How do you get started with changing your work when you’ve got no money to work with?
  • How are facilities integrating sustainable practices into their operations?

A unique gathering of speakers who are a who’s who of Canadian and international innovation and leadership in the performing arts:

  • Michael Mehler, scenery, lighting and sound designer and Co-chair, Broadway Green Alliance  
  • Harry Giles, Environment Officer for Festivals, Edinburgh, Scotland
  • Grant Heggie, Ready Set Recycle, Toronto
