Join the Alliance of Performing Arts Conferences* for a webinar Wednesday, March 18 at 12 p.m. (PT): "We Are Stronger Together: Navigating Crises and Sustaining Healthy Relationships in the Era of Coronavirus".
The World Health Organization has now classified the spread of coronavirus as a pandemic, forcing cancellations of events by local mandate or out of “an abundance of caution”.
As a result, the performing arts presenting, booking and touring industry is navigating unchartered waters, as we look to both contracts—and to each other—for direction.
Join the partners of the Alliance for Performing Arts Conferences (APAC)*, as we host an informative, field-wide conversation with presenters, agents, artists, and legal and emergency response experts around the current business, legal, financial, ethical and relational realities we are facing TOGETHER.
- We encourage everyone to register in advance as there are a couple of steps and we don’t want anyone to have trouble getting in or miss any of our speakers.
