DANCE NEWS: Sign Up For The Upcoming National Endowment for the Arts Webinar On Re-Opening Venues Tuesday March 23rd
Tuesday, March 23 at 3:00 ET / 2:00 CT / 1:00 MT / 12:00 PT
How arts organizations can reopen their venues in 2021 is the topic of this virtual event presented by the National Endowment for the Arts. With opening remarks by Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) at the National Institutes of Health, this virtual event will highlight best practices of reopening and also consider the outlook for arts organizations who seek to re-engage with live audiences and visitors in 2021.
Dr. Fauci was appointed director of NIAID in 1984. He oversees an extensive research portfolio of basic and applied research to prevent, diagnose, and treat established infectious diseases. He has been a visible and highly esteemed leader in the fight against COVID-19 and currently serves on the White House COVID-19 Response Team.
The event is based in part on the NEA’s report The Art of Reopening: A Guide to Current Practices Among Arts Organizations During COVID-19 that was published in January 2021. The report examines reopening practices of organizations that resumed in-person programming in 2020 and presents promising tactics and nine case studies. Three of the organizations featured as case studies will be represented on a panel moderated by Sunil Iyengar, director of the Arts Endowment’s Office of Research & Analysis.
Moderated by National Endowment for the Arts Director of Research and Analysis Sunil Iyengar, panelists include Rebecca Read Medrano, GALA Hispanic Theatre; Scott Altman, Cincinnati Ballet; and Chloe Cook, Sidewalk Film Center and Cinema. Audience Q&A will be included.
