ArtsReady: Who’s On First? Artist/Crew Safety is No Joke

Tuesday, September 26 | 9:00 – 10:15 a.m.

Presenters: you may have excellent procedures for safely evacuating your audiences in an emergency, but do you orient each and every guest artist and crew member to safety procedures? Artists: you regularly walk into an unfamiliar venue – do you ask about security and emergency procedures? ArtsReady’s anecdotal research shows the answer to these questions is probably no! Don’t assume the other party in your engagement has got it covered – and don’t wait until a crisis hits to ask critical questions. Let’s have a conversation about protecting everyone who’s in the house. PLUS: information on grants, resources and trainings from the Performing Arts Readiness Project.
