PuSh Assembly: Industry Series


Industry Series events are geared to performing arts industry professionals and practitioners whether they are artists, producers or presenters; emerging, mid-career or established. Industry series events can be accessed with a PuSh Industry Pass or Industry Pack.

Our goal with the PuSh Assembly is to gather together in relaxed settings for sharing ideas, perspectives, and best practices through performances, showcases, discussions, and ongoing networking opportunities. Each year we host over 100 visiting Canadian and international presenters, artists and other industry leaders.
