With all those people watching, there were a lot of serious questions posed. If you have the time, it would be worth watching the recording when it is posted in the next 24 hours or so. Pay particular attention to the chatroom because people were trading a lot of useful links.
I wanted to share some of the links because a number are very helpful if you are considering livestreaming events.
But first, Americans for the Arts and others are trying to collect information about the impact the current crisis is having on arts organizations so they can do some lobbying for relief. They are asking people to complete the survey found here. There are also a lot of other resources on that page so check it out.
Association of Performing Arts Professionals also has resources and appeals for Congressional action.
If you have visa questions about foreign artists, Covey Law has updates about consular offices and answers about visa extensions.
In terms of streaming resources.
•Someone posted this flow chart for musicians to help them decide what streaming service to use based on whether they want to monetize the experience or not.
•A really good resource about deciding to stream, what do use for video vs audio, and whether you want to monetize or not can be found in this Google doc. I am not clear who is updating it, but they are providing a great service. There is also an calendar of some upcoming livestream events toward the bottom. Even if you aren’t interested in the content of the event, it could be worth seeing how people are structuring their livestream to get tips for your own effort.
•A participant also pointed to this Better Lemons page that has resources and ideas for viewing parties, etc
•Someone also created a Facebook group, (on the fly during the webinar, I suspect) where you can list your livestream event as well.
