Think Tank: Moving Theatre Forward Post-Covid

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
The Covid-19 pandemic has fundamentally changed the face of the theatre industry in ways that we're only just beginning to grasp. Some theatres are closing. Some theatres are folding. Folks are losing jobs and none of us know when things are going to reopen—or if they are. It's a scary time. That said, theatre and theatre people are resilient. As up-in-the-air as the industry is, the situation is certainly not without hope. But, it's going to take work. How are we going to adapt and change? How are we going to move forward in this new world? And, how can we support each other?

Join us for this Think Tank conversation as industry professionals from across the theatre spectrum dig into these questions and more!

NOTE: This is a ticketed event. Please visit our Eventbrite to purchase a ticket.
This session will begin at 3:00 pm ET on Tuesday, July 21st, 2020.
Its link to join will only be visible to those registered and signed in to their Sched account.

"The School of Natural Hollywood: Intro to Black Hair on Stage and Screen" is now being presented on July 31!
