Rethinking Space –
Changing Roles of Real Estate and Single Purpose Spaces
8:55 am PDT / 9:55 am MDT / 10:55 am CDT / 11:55 am EDT
A Venue now may need different densities and configurations — and is not the only way to be creating and performing in a local community. Ahead of the pandemic, all sorts of pop-ups, outdoor events and festivals, and multi-purpose spaces were growing in many communities. In this session, we’ll explore the future of venues in a post-pandemic local world in terms of density, ownership, policy/permitting, and incentive structures. Real estate may never be the same — how will its challenges this past year shift our assumptions of what we expect in our creative cities and spaces?
