Here’s a free online event you may be interested in on Thursday 28th October.
Prior to its 33rd Conference, SIBMAS is delighted to invite theatre-lovers, in conjunction with the Polish Theatre Institute, to their autumn online short symposium, which will be held on 28th October 2021, at 3 pm (CEST)/ 2pm (BST) . The online event is titled:
Global Disconnections: Performing Arts Collections in the time of a Pandemic.
The description is as follows
“In these still difficult times, we would like to focus on the influence the pandemic has had on the functioning of member organizations of SIBMAS and other cultural institutions. We would like to also discuss the new solutions and practices developed during the lockdown.
During the first two-hour section of the conference, three speakers will be highlighted: Maria Babicka from the Polish Theatre Institute, Eric Colleary – Cline Curator of Theatre and Performing Arts from Harry Ransom Centre, The University of Texas at Austin, and Ramona Riedzewski – the former Head of Collections Management of the recently dissolved dedicated Department of Performing Arts at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.”
There is free access online for everybody + Coffee Roulette on registration, as well as live coverage on social media. Please join them if you can for what sounds like a fascinating analysis of arts in the time of Covid.
