A Festival of Ideas

Annual Improv Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana

Celebrating Theater, Visual Arts, and More

Improv Conference NOLA: A Festival of Ideas was held in 2018 and 2019. It was meant to be an annual event. We hope to make it happen again in 2024 after I see my new book to press: Winging It: How Improvisation Makes (and Breaks) Popular Culture
