Roadmap to Recovery and Resilience: Arts Reopening in Greater Boston
Thursday, June 10, 2021 | 2:00pm - 3:00pm | via Zoom |
Please join us for a Q&A discussion with Dr. Joe Allen, Director Healthy Buildings Program at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, and Ryan McKittrick, Director of Artistic Programs and Dramaturg at American Repertory Theater.
This Saturday, May 29th, all capacity restrictions will be lifted state-wide. We know arts venues and organizations around the region are working on reopening plans and are eager to discuss strategies and insights on venue safety and audience communications. In this session, you’ll have the opportunity to get some of your questions answered.
As one of the world’s leading experts on healthy buildings, Dr. Allen has spent several years in the private sector leading teams of scientists and engineers to investigate and resolve hundreds of indoor environmental quality issues, including “sick buildings,” cancer clusters, and biological/chemical hazards. At Harvard, his academic research focuses on the critical role the indoor built environment plays in our overall health. In response to the COVID-19 crisis, the A.R.T. and the Healthy Buildings Program at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health immediately began collaborating to create the Roadmap to Recovery and Resilience, which first launched on May 27, 2020 and continues to be revised as the science and disease dynamics change.
As part of event registration, you’ll have the opportunity to submit questions in advance. Please do so as it will help us tailor the conversation to address as many questions as possible.
For any additional questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to seeing you soon.
