1:00 to 2:00 p.m.
Learn about The Business of the Arts from those who make it happen - from marketing and public relations to sales, sponsorship, programming and producing. As the country’s largest performing arts center outside of New York, PlayhouseSquare averages more than 1 million guests that attend 1,500+ events/performances every year. More than $60 million is infused into the local economy every
year by PlayhouseSquare’s not-for-profit mission. Learn what it takes from those who bring the
cultural arts to life in downtown Cleveland!
Introduce your students to a variety of careers in the business side of the performing arts. Through a panel interview and Q&A session, students gain an understanding of the skills and competencies related to specific career fields in the performing arts directly from PlayhouseSquare professionals. Teachers benefit from bringing professionals right into the classroom through the technology of distance learning! Our
Teacher’s Guide connects the experience to the classroom curriculum. You can download the guide at www.playhousesquare.org/eduresources
