Paris will host our 16th annual conference this summer. In the past years, we’ve had the conference in North America and Europe, each time gathering a greater community of professionals for multiple days of learning, inspiration, and play.


Every year, we gather at an annual conference to share research, best practices, historical perspective, and new developments in the field of Applied Improvisation with fun, passion, and professionalism.

What Happens

At the annual World Conference, you’ll encounter practical ideas, tools, techniques, tips and small steps you can use immediately to create instant improvisational experiences and learnings wherever you work.

You’ll also experience inspirational talks by industry leaders and innovators, and a wide choice of stimulating presentations and workshops representing diverse interests in the fields of business, community development, arts, health sector, charities, academics, soft skills, and therapy.

You’ll find panel discussions with lively conversations and question-and-answer sessions, and casual conversations with like-minded professionals that stretch your mind and inspire you to learn and do more.

And you can expect a healthy dose of music and comedy performances dabbling in good old fashion (non-applied) improvisation.

After attending a conference, new attendees often denote: “I’ve found my tribe.”

Coming Up in 2018:

DiverseCity –
Improvisation in Europe’s City of Love

Our 2018 conference ‘DiverseCity’ will take place at FIAP, Paris, France. Paris, Europe’s city of love will welcome you to discover and celebrate the breadth of uses and applications of improvisation throughout many different disciplines.

Being located in the centre of Paris will give conference attendees an inspiring environment for learning, and also the convenience of accessing the rest of France and Europe. With its moderate climate and location close to both renowned museums and sights, this conference will encourage the exploration of new ideas and experiences. Say Oui, et!
