Description:

The performing arts sector is encountering an unprecedented challenge for hosting in-person events safely during this global pandemic, countless wildfires, and a struggling economy. Fortunately, this presents an opportunity for artists to employ their creativity and ingenuity to develop new types of shared experiences. This webinar will begin with a framework to help guide decision makers to either modify or virtualize their gatherings using case studies from Denver’s 5 Points Jazz Festival (May 2020) and Alabama’s Women in Jazz Festival (September 2020).

On December 16, we will have two special guests, Owen Trujillo and Enrique Jimenez, share their expertise on digital marketing, choosing and implementing the best technology for your event, and modifying performance protocols. This webinar will be most helpful for performing arts and cultural organizations looking to enhance curation, accessibility, and partnerships.
