PACTcon 2023

Planting Seeds

June 7 to 10 – Kamloops / Tk'emlúps

Many natural systems move in patterns of loss and renewal, at odds with capitalism’s imperative for endless growth. The cones of B.C.’s lodgepole pines only release their seeds under the extreme heat of a forest fire. This adaptation means they are ready to grow soon after the destruction.

After three years of calamity, what new seeds are we planting in our field? How can we regrow a more diverse and resilient sector? At PACT’s national gathering, we’ll get our hands dirty and start the long process of regeneration.

What is PACTcon?

PACT's annual gathering is an opportunity to share vital experiences and deep encounters with your theatre colleagues from across Canada. The connections made and conversations started at the event carry through the rest of the year and often spark creative partnerships, mentorships, and joint projects.

The annual gathering is open to theatre leaders and other staff at PACT Member Companies and PACT Colleagues, as well as anyone from beyond the membership who would like to attend. Theatre artists, managers, administrators, and board members are all encouraged to join us. The more voices in the room, the richer our conversations will be.
