International Stage Management Day – 10th October

1 October 2021

We wanted to let you know about our Stage Management Day 2021 #stagemgrs21 on Sunday 10th October and special new initiatives this year.

In 2021 we are supporting the new entrants to our profession on International Stage Management Day with #SM192021 to encourage everyone to support these fantastic new stage managers, for whom the recent years have been especially tough going. We would be most grateful if you could re-tweet or share #SM192021 on the day.

Stage Management Day is truly International now and the tag #stagemgrs21 will be used by our US sister organisation, as well as stage managers around the world who form part of the International Cohort. In the present climate it is great to reach out to colleagues around the world and support each other and our work to move forward together from the pandemic to hopefully more normal times.

In addition, as usual we are sharing ‘our’ day with World Mental Health Day (which is significant for stage managers and our colleagues, considering the increased prevalence of mental health issues amongst workers in the arts).
