The Future of Theatre: Dennis Garnhum In Conversation with Michael Milde
The Words Festival and the Faculty of Arts & Humanities at Western are very pleased to present a conversation on the future of theatre, featuring Grand Theatre Artistic Director Dennis Garnhum and Dean of Arts & Humanities Michael Milde!

The Future of Theatre: Dennis Garnhum In Conversation with Michael Milde
8 December 2021, 7:00PM

The arts and culture sectors have been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. And yet, we need the transformative power of the creative arts now more than ever. Taking up the question of how we can place the arts at the centre of recovery strategies, Words is launching a conversation series on The Future of the Arts, and we have invited a visionary group of leaders, artists, and authors to consider how the cultural and creative sectors can emerge from the COVID-19 crisis stronger and more resilient than ever.

Beginning in December of 2021, our Future of the Arts Series will run throughout the spring of 2022 and will consider the role of libraries, galleries, and museums, as well as the future of music, film, publishing, the humanities, and more!

Dennis Garnhum took on the role of Artistic Director at the Grand Theatre in 2016, a return to his hometown of London, Ontario, that enables him to strengthen the community through his strong partnerships, vision and leadership. Since taking on his role with the Grand, Dennis created several new programs: COMPASS New Play Development Program, 100 Schools educational outreach, and 1000 Seats community initiative. He also launched a new partnership with Sheridan College’s Canadian Music Theatre Program that partners with the Grand’s High School Project.

Dennis will join us to share his vision for the future of the dramatic arts after Covid-19.
