A Symphony of Confusion: Sorting Through What’s Next for Our Cultural Facilities

AMS Principal Steven Wolff joins a panel of industry colleagues to discuss how we can design and plan cultural facilities in the short-term pandemic-era and long term as our notions of health and safety evolve.

To date, the first round of post-COVID-19 reopening guidelines for cultural and performing arts facilities have focused on process. Most of the attention has been directed to public safety and audience comfort levels. For many, these buildings are a place of employment as well as a place of enjoyment. What can we, as planners and designers, do to enhance safety beyond that of attendees in response to the current pandemic—and can we better prepare these buildings for the future?

Speakers will present their perspectives on the current conditions and will answer your questions live. This will be a free-flowing, educational, and entertaining conversation with some dynamic guests, including:

Moderator:
Alexa Antopol, Chief Intelligence Officer, Fisher Dachs Associates

Speakers:
Steven A. Adelman, V.P., Event Safety Alliance; Founder, Adelman Law Group
Heather McAvoy, ASTC, Principal, Schuler Shook
Delia Nevola, AIA, LEED AP, Principal, Steinberg Hart
Steven A. Wolff, CMC, Founding Principal, AMS Planning & Research Corp
