The 2018 International Black Theatre Summit, “Breaking New Ground Where We Stand,” held at Dartmouth College in collaboration with The CRAFT Institute on September 26-29, 2018.
Hosted by Dr. Monica White Ndounou, the summit was a reconvening and celebration of legendary playwright, August Wilson’s 1998 “On Golden Pond” black theatre summit which originally convened at Dartmouth to assess the state of black theatre funding, resources and opportunities. Due to various creative and business intersections throughout the entertainment industry, the 2018 reconvening included industry insiders, experts and scholar-artists and practitioners in theatre, film and media.
The goal of the convening was to maintain and establish more intentional strategies and professional networks, programs and coalitions that capitalize on the links between theatre, film, television and related media platforms with domestic and international connections. The network will better support and sustain black artists, cultural producers and audiences thereby providing models for cross-cultural collaborations.
