PACTcon Online: Massive Change

Taking place wherever you are from August 24 to 28, 2020
Canadian theatre is in the grips of multiple crises. Although we can’t meet in person, we urgently need to connect. Taking its lead from our ongoing weekly town halls, PACTcon Online will explore the pressing questions we face today:
  • How does Canadian theatre recover from the total disruption of the live performing arts caused by the COVID-19 pandemic?
  • What actions can companies and individuals take to dismantle the systems of structural racism and discrimination within Canadian theatre?
  • How can Canadian theatre become a force for change in the midst of the global climate crisis?
We want to return to theatres that are more equitable, sustainable, and vibrant than before the pandemic. Join the conversation as we work towards the massive changes we need.

Schedule Overview

PACTcon Online will take place from Tuesday, August 25th, to Friday, August 28th
Pre-Conference Workshops with separate registration will take place on Monday, August 24th
Each day of the conference will include bold speakers from Canadian theatre and beyond (12pm to 1pm ET), timely learning sessions addressing crisis and change (1:30pm to 3pm ET), and brave conversations led by you and your peers (3:30pm to 4:30pm ET).

Registration Options

It’s more important than ever that we have as many voices in these conversations as possible. PACTcon Online is heavily discounted compared to our in-person conferences. In recognition of the challenging financial times, we are implementing a Pay What You Can Afford pricing structure with Individual Registration ranging from $10 to $75, and a PACT Member Company Registration option for up to ten people ranging from $85 to $350. You will receive the same access no matter which price level you select, and the money raised will go towards accessibility measures for the conference and honoraria for our speakers and facilitators.
