Opening Stage Doors

December 7 – December 9, 2021
12 – 6PM

Opening Stage Doors, a first-of-its-kind virtual convening, shares tools and innovations in job training, mentorship, and job placement, with the goal of helping remove traditional barriers to off-stage performing-arts jobs.

Organized by a national team of arts leaders who oversee workforce programs, participants will hear from experts and one another about how to introduce young people to administrative and technical backstage professions, effectively manage or reimagine programs for new and more seasoned arts workers, and ensure historically marginalized members of our community (including people of color, veterans, and people with disabilities) are part of a scaffolded and supportive training process that leads to employment.
