Can I just say THANK YOU?!

I’m seriously loving that more and more organizations are making video of conference sessions easily available online, like the Dramatists Guild (via Newplay TV) did last month. Theatre Communications Group sent out a press release last week, outlining the contents of its online archive of video from its annual conference, held in Los Angeles in June. (This year’s TCG event was record-breaking attendance-wise, and kicked off the organization’s 50th anniversary…and Beantown will host TCG next year, so tune in and take notes, people!) Playwrights' Commons posted several wrap-ups of the recent conference of the Literary Managers & Dramaturgs of the Americas on its blog, as well as its #LMDA11 tweet stream.

These organizations (and others, of course) offer theatre artists support – legal advice, advocacy, grants, fellowships, publications – on so many different levels that it seems almost endless, and this is one more way they’re looking out for us. So, thanks DG and PwritesCom! Thanks TCG, for putting these archives at the fingertips of folks who perhaps couldn’t afford to attend; for making them available to those who did attend, and who want to share their favorite sessions with friends and followers; and for granting access to the many of us who simply fight the daily battle of the over-scheduled life and can’t be everywhere all at once.

It’s wonderful to know this information is online for everyone. Now I just need the time to watch, read, and process it all!  ;)
