Mark your calendar: Thursday, April 18, 2019 from 12:30-2:00pm CT I’ll be taking part in Arts Alliance Illinois’ ARTS MOVE POLICY (AMP): Arts + Technology webinar.
Thanks to the generosity of The Joyce Foundation and the Chauncey and Marion D. McCormick Family Foundation, registration is free of charge.
This webinar is part of their larger AMP series, which take a deeper dive into topics as they intersect with the arts. Previous topics include Arts + Immigration and Arts + Civic Engagement while this session focuses on Arts + Technology. My portion of the webinar will focus on what arts orgs and individual artists need to focus on in a post net-neutrality era and getting in sync with accessibility compliance.
Whether making, distributing, or marketing creative work, technology is indispensable to artists. We are in the middle of significant change in technology policies that impact the creative sector. Will the recent rollback of net neutrality push your content to the bottom of the search pile? How will changes in wireless technology regulations affect your theatre or orchestra?
Learn about these issues and more as we make complex but impactful policy issues easier to understand and give you opportunities for action. Featured speakers include Drew McManus of Venture Industries Online and the blog Adaptistration, Laurie Baskin of Theatre Communications Group, and staff of The Chicago Center for Arts & Technology.
The organization’s mission is to build the vitality of communities statewide through service and advocacy, thereby generating resources for the cultural sector and creative industries.
