The Theatres Trust Conference 08

Next month, London’s The Theatres Trust (TTT) will hold their annual conference — and guess what they’re calling it? BUILDING SUSTAINABLE THEATRES. Nice.

According the press release, “theatre owners and managers, manufacturers, suppliers and consultants, architects and engineers, will be invited to debate the impact of climate change on theatre buildings and what influence the reduction of our carbon footprint will have on theatre use in the 21st Century.”

The TTT conference will be held on June 10 at Cottesloe Theatre.

Man, I’ve got to get to London.

    Me to! Do you think there is a way to get meeting notes from the conference?

    There is always a way.

    PLUS, I have arranged to speak with Scott Georgeson after he attends The Theatre Trust conference in a few weeks, and will post my Q & A with him then. Georgeson is also on the green theater panel taking place at NATEAC in July, and will be speaking on sustainable theaters at this year’s League of Historic American Theatres conference (also in July, I believe). He also was on the panel entitled “To LEED or not to LEED” at the recent USITT conference in Houston. So, it should be an interesting conversation — look for it in about a month (I thought it best to wait to do it until he returns from London).

what’s in a color?

"It should be about different kinds of symbols than the color green—wind farms, solar, renewable-energy laboratories, those things that are symbolic of the new energy economy. People think that we overuse the concept of green, and it could become trite in its expression.”
“This idea about green in a lot of people’s minds still conjures up this notion of a fringe or something that’s out-there. It doesn’t inspire this notion of a new America. It just seems more substantive than a color.” - Colorado governor Bill Ritter, Jr. in The New Yorker
