October 1-9, 2016

Hosted by Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, Oregon

Earlybird passes on sale August 1.

Over the course of nine days in Ashland, Oregon, the 2016 National Asian American Theater Conference and Festival (ConFest) will bring theater productions, panel discussions, plenary sessions, new play readings, workshops, special events, and most importantly, a space for Asian American theatre practitioners and our allies from across the country to connect and build the relationships that help keep the community vibrant and alive. It will be an opportunity to see some of the amazing work being presented by theater artists across the country.

This year’s ConFest at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival is a historic partnership with one of America’s largest theater companies. The theme Seismic Shifts: Leading Change in the American Theater will engage people in passionate dialogues about social injustice and inequality in American culture and what we, as theater practitioners, can do about it.
