We'll explore what will be happening at the 'Performing the World' Conference, coming up October 4 to 7 in New York City, with Rutgers professor of education Carrie Lobman -- and several guest presenters, including Hector Aristizabal, Miguel Cortés Vázquez and Alexandra Sutherland. Carrie will also be collaborating with "Creativity in Play" co-hosts Steve Dahlberg and Mary Alice Long for a "Creativity in Play: Performing a Creative World on Purpose" session at the conference.
PTW's theme is "Can Performance Save the World?" and will draw several hundred people from around the world who care about how performance, play and creativity. PTW is described as a "marathon 'performance of conversation' with people from all over the world — scholars and researchers; educators, therapists, social workers, youth workers; doctors and other health workers; theatre, applied theatre and other performance artists; social activists and community organizers; business leaders and philanthropists; film, video and media creatives; and others."
