Rozsa Foundation, Calgary Foundation, and Calgary Arts Development present a monthly webinar series!
About this event
As in-person arts activity resumes but the threats and challenges of COVID-19 still loom large, how are arts organizations navigating the considerations around welcoming audiences back into their performance spaces?
This monthly webinar series will provide a community forum throughout the fall. We will hear from guest arts leaders who are tackling these challenges, then open the floor to create space for questions, conversations and success sharing. What programming considerations are being made? What’s being communicated to audiences? What’s being done in venues to ensure safety? How do masks and vaccines impact plans and policies? How can we learn from each other as we navigate this shifting new reality?
The second webinar will be held on Thursday, October 28 at 12:30 p.m. (Mountain Time). Registration is free.
Special Guests include:
Paul Muir, Executive Director of Rosebud Theatre, will talk about implementing safety protocols and the REP outside of a major city centre. How was it received by patrons?
Kanika Anand, Assistant Curator at Contemporary Calgary, will discuss how Covid-19 has affected operations at the arts gallery. What changes have they had to consider to invite visitors back?
Kim Stadelmann, Associate Executive Director at the Citadel Theatre, will share their experiences with patrons and programs since they began presenting live theatre in August.
Leslie Biles, VP, Operations, Venue and Event Management from Arts Commons, will explain how and why they developed a common approach to Covid-19 safety expectations throughout the facility and resident companies. What lessons might apply to the sector?
