Kindling 2019: IMPACT
Kindling 2019: IMPACT
2019 marked the seventh season of Kindling at IPAY Showcase. Launched at Showcase 2013 in Philadelphia with a focus on Creative Catalysts, Kindling celebrates and explores individuals and organizations who are pushing the boundaries of performing arts for young audiences. Kindling continues to be a platform for open discussion and dialogue—a place to spark, question, and share ideas and dreams for the development of our entire sector.

For our 2019 program, we turned our focus to IMPACT. We all strive to create impact in the experiences we produce or present. Exactly what kind of impact are we are looking for, and how will we know when it happens? As connection points within a larger creative ecosystem, how do we work together to realize our full potential for making meaningful, lasting impact?


Kindling 2019 began with a Keynote on “Planning for Impact”, from Yvette Hardie, President of ASSITEJ, International Association for Theatre for Children and Young People, and 2019 winner of the prestigious Mickey Miners Award.
 Her powerful presentation kicked off a program of panels, workshops, and round-table conversations, all considering the complexities of IMPACT in our field.

You can find select resources provided by the 2019 Kindling presenters in the Resources Library at the bottom of the page.
