Triple Play Convening

The Triple Play Convening was co-organized by HowlRound, Theatre Development Fund, and Theatre Bay Area, and took place in Boston, MA in January, 2015. Over a long weekend, participants explored the existing Triple Play research—including the one-on-one conversations with audience members— and discussed how it could be translated into concrete actions in their individual communities.
