THE BLUEPRINT: What Managers, Artists, and Presenters Want in the 21st Century

-- /EPR NETWORK/ -- The Association of Performing Arts Presenters and iCadenza present a ground-breaking interactive panel discussion and workshop at APAP|NYC 2014 Annual Conference, the largest annual gathering of performing arts professionals in the world.

“The Blueprint: What Managers, Artists and Presenters Want in the 21st Century,” is a forum/workshop led by iCadenza and a panel of industry experts. Managers, presenters, and artists will come together to:
• Demystify the process of artist management and artist selection by venues
• Discuss proper business and negotiation etiquette
• Learn how to understand the 21st century audience

Using the design thinking methods pioneered at IDEO and Stanford University, forum participants will create new norms for the relationship between managers, artists, and presenters of the millennial generation, to result in more innovative and collaborative practices that will propel the performing arts into the future. The ultimate goal of the forum is to develop a process for how this collaboration can lead the industry to provide more unique and meaningful experiences for audiences, debunking the traditional roles and stereotypes of managers, artists, and presenters and presenting alternatives for forging stronger relationships among the three.

Panelists include Jeremy Byrd (Director of Production for Performing Arts Fort Worth), artistic director Andrew Cyr, conductor Jonathan Tessero, harpist Bridget Kibbey, violinist Quinton Morris, violinist and member of the award-winning Aeolus Quartet Rachel Shapiro, Greg Kastelman (Booking Coordinator at Cadenza Artists), and Lindsay Kratz (Artist Representative at Baylin Artists).

The workshop will take place on Friday, January 10th from 9am to noon in the Beekman Parlor on the second floor of the New York Hilton Midtown Hotel (1335 Avenue of the Americas, NY, NY 10019), and is free and open to the public. Pre-registration information is available at:
