The Future of Concerts in a Word Transformed


The Stage II


(Re)Setting The Stage is a global online conference series exploring dynamic challenges and opportunities faced by arts sector professionals. Each conversation convenes a diverse group of industry experts, including public officials, managers, presenters, board members and other decision-makers, who navigate complex questions and examine the evolving landscape of the future of performance.

Season II widens the conversation, encourages greater participation and extends the reach to include the voice of more communities around the world — including the addition of simulcast audio translation of all sessions to both English & Spanish and a special add-on entitled (Re)Setting the Stage: Enfoque Colombia that allows, following each global discussion, experts from Colombia and across Latin America to adapt ideas raised to the region’s unique challenges and opportunities.

Join by participating, exchanging and discussing in these interactive cross-sector and cross-continental conversations to make sense of a performing arts world in transformation.

*All webinars are for free. Registration required, limited vacancies.
