    Freelance designers and individual artists have unique proximity to the heartbeat of the theatre field. They work at numerous venues each season, in many cases over multiple years and multiple visits, thus experiencing a variety of institutional cultures first hand. However, unlike Actors Equity, there are no industry-wide standards for engaging freelance artists. How can institutions incorporate the learning and experience of the freelance artists they hire more deeply into their organization’s fabric, acknowledging the invaluable nature of their vantage point? Especially during this time when the entire field is on a forced pause.

    In this session, we explore how guest artists are welcomed and valued by the institutions that invite them through their doors. We will discuss implementing industry-wide standards, creating sustainable feedback loops, recommended best practices sourced from the community at large, and how we can move forward as a community.

    Variable room acoustics has been a topic of big interest throughout the last years. This session starts with some general background information on acoustics for theatre and vent, before focusing on practical issues for materials and solutions on site. By the use of fabrics installed as curtains or roll banners it is possible to dramatically change the acoustics of a venue due to different events taking place in one and the same room. Choosing the suiting material and using it in the right amount and correct installation can improve the acoustics event more. In addition, bass absorbing materials can be added to control the overall sound.
