2016 CONFERENCE REGISTRATION POLICIES
Individual Artists must join TCG as an Individual Member to qualify for the Member registration rate. There is a $25 discounted rate for Individual Members joining to attend the Conference. Please visit this page to read about the benefits and join TCG, if you are not already an Individual Member.
There were also increased Scholarship and Subsidy opportunities for Individual Artists and Students this year. The deadline to apply for scholarships and subsidies has passed. All artists and students who applied for subsidies were required to be Individual Members of TCG. See this page for information on joining TCG as an Individual Member at the $25 discounted rate.
Students (undergraduate and postgraduate only) must join TCG as an Individual Member to qualify for Subsidies and the Member registration rate. Eligible students must be full-time college or graduate students. Please visit this page to join TCG at a $25 discounted rate if you are not already an Individual Member.
High school students attending the full Conference must register through a student group, such as a Teen Council at a TCG Member theatre. High school students attending in groups will receive an additional Registration discount. Educators or education staff at TCG Member Theatres who would like to bring a high school student group to the Conference, please email us.
TCG hosts a Family-Friendly Conference, and as such, parents and adults are permitted to bring one child, ages 11-17, to most plenary sessions free of charge (some are closed due to content; check the session listing on Conference 2.0 for information on closed content). The registered parent/adult must accompany their minor, and sign them in at the on-site Registration desk. This applies to plenary (full-Conference) sessions only. More resources for Families attending the Conference can be found here.
