Welcome to Indiana 2010

I’m Brian Wolf, and I will have the pleasure of blogging for you this week, throughout THSA’s 2010 conclave. Here in our Indianapolis base, things kicked off Tuesday with a walking tour throughout downtown Indy; we were priviledged to have experienced docents from Indiana Landmarks to explain the significance of many beautiful structures downtown, as well as those dearly departed. I for one felt lucky to catch any of the tour – Indiana’s idiosyncratic time zones caught me off guard, leaving me an hour later than I expected. I am sure many more surprises await us this week – I think Conclaves are a unique opportunity to see the United States, and I have yet to come away from a Conclave without a much different understanding of a region. There simply are not many organizations like THSA, where you can visit a different part of the country every year with a mostly consistent group of like-minded people. I can’t imagine another type of tour that would bring me through so many towns in Indiana. It’s really not flyover country, or something to bypass on the expressway – it’s a vital part of American history, and theatres are a unique way to discover our story. And of course, along the way, we all discover many other beautiful, significant buildings. This conclave has a lot in store, and I am sure we will all discover much more than corn in Indiana.
