Since 1998, IMTAL conferences have recognized and supported the best in museum theatre innovation and practice.
See you next year!
In acknowledgement of the worldwide disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the strain it has placed on our institutions, the IMTAL board of directors and the organizing committee have made the difficult decision to cancel our annual conference, which was scheduled to begin in late September in St. Paul, Minnesota. We are indebted to our friends at The Science Museum of Minnesota and Minnesota History Center for their plans to host this conference.
We are still planning to find a way to celebrate the 30th anniversary of IMTAL. Meanwhile, to our members, friends, and supporters, we remain dedicated to the art of museum theatre, those who practice it, and those who are moved by it and look forward to seeing you at our global conference next year!
