Scenes from the last BREAK/ROOM Conversations

Now six months into the COVID-19 pandemic, the performing arts field has weathered enormous upheaval and loss---from an avalanche of cancellations and rescheduling, to the loss of revenue, income, jobs, health and safety.

Yet crisis often brings innovation and clarity. Together with colleagues across the field, we are forging new paths in programming, partnerships, technologies and communities. Additionally, artists, producers, agents, funders and presenters are calling our field out (and inviting us in) to address all that wasn’t working, wasn’t equitable, and wasn’t sustainable long before the pandemic struck and that was made all the more evident since the pandemic began.

In response, performing arts professionals are mobilizing to advocate for new ways to operate and do business that will advance equity and sustainability. Using a social justice lens, they are developing new strategies, resources, guidelines, models and support that will drive transformation in the field.
