2019 Annual Conference

Heart & Head


Manitoba Theatre for Young People

Winnipeg, Manitoba

May 23-25, 2019

This year's annual conference takes place at The Forks in downtown Winnipeg. The Forks, where the waters of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers meet before continuing north toward Hudson Bay, is a historic meeting place and link to Canada’s north. If Manitoba is Canada’s heart, then the north is Canada’s brain. The theme of this year’s conference is Heart & Head, with explorations into Indigenous knowledge, the health of our waters and the North.

This is the first time in its 48 years that SWCC has held its conference in Winnipeg. The Forks puts you in the centre of this great Prairie city.
