Real Talk Part 1: Collaborative Problem Solving in the Live Touring Ecology

July 27, 2021 @ 5 PM CT

The live industry is about putting artists in front of audiences, but if we’re all working toward the same goal, why does it feel so combative? In this session, festivals, agencies, managers, and artists themselves will make themselves vulnerable, offering up the core obstacle or issue they’re facing and trusting in collaborative, whole-hearted solutions and direction from their industry colleagues.
