U.S. Artist Visas and International Travel in the Age of COVID: Latest Update

***This event has passed and the replay is now available.***

After more than a year of canceled, postponed, or reimagined performances, U.S. arts organizations, presenters, and agents have resumed programming and planning for the 2021-22 season, only to find the U.S. is not quite ready to open our borders for all international artists.

In this free 75-minute webinar, on Thursday, September 9 from 3:00-4:15 p.m (EDT), experts from Tamizdat and the hosts of ArtistsfromAbroad.org – the Association of Performing Arts Professionals and the League of American Orchestras – will:

  • Describe what it takes to secure U.S. artist visas and navigate COVID-19 travel restrictions right now.
  • Cover what the current and long-term policy environment means for seeking more equitable opportunities to support international cultural activity.

Sessions

A New Culture of Care for Presenting and Touring
February 27, 3:00-4:30 p.m. (EST), RSVP here. This is an APAP members-only event.

Among the current shifts in presenting and touring is an emerging culture of care in and around organizations. This culture of care reflects an intention and alignment of values, practice, and relationships. It takes a people-first approach and prioritizes relationships to reimagine expectations and inform decision-making. The result impacts operations, programming, workload, resources, etc. Join us for an exploration and conversation around these shifts with representatives from Contra Tiempo (CA), Junebug Productions (LA) and Urban Bush Women (NY). You’ll hear more about these companies’ journeys making these shifts, how these changes have impacted their work and organizations, and explore what these shifts signal about where we are and where we’re going as a field.

Get Release Ready: Insider Strategies for a Successful Album Launch
March 5, 2:00-3:30 p.m. (EST), RSVP here.

Are you planning a new album or single release? Feeling overwhelmed by the endless details and worried you might be missing something crucial? Did you work too hard on your music to release it to crickets? If you’re looking for clear direction on the steps to take before your new music hits the airwaves, look no further! This workshop will outline how a new release can help you reach more listeners, grow your audience, get better press and build career momentum.

You’ll learn to:

  • Plan the timeline so you’re not scrambling at the last minute
  •  Write a press release that sings
  • Make the most of a single and video drop
  • Coordinate publicity with shows and tours

We’ll touch on distribution, metadata, mechanicals, licensing, ISRC codes, waterfall singles, and all the other tiny (but important) details.
