The impact of the internet on the arts is positive! People are able to buy tickets, research arts organizations, and sign-up for newsletters and subscriptions. In addition, Arts organizations can connect with their audience by streaming live shows and being on social media.

Hello! My name is Josh and I hope to learn about the different levels of incorporating technology within arts organizations, as well as proper/appropriate levels of incorporation. It is extremely important that the arts keep up with the social and technological changes being made in order to survive in this efficient and accessibility-heavy society. Technical background I have includes being the Electronics Crew Leader for the NCAA ranked #1 pep band in the country. We use speakers, satellites, a soundboard, and a plethora of cables. I am also a Christ Chapel Tech Intern in Woodbridge, Virginia. In addition to doing administrative work for the tech teams, I shadow the Technical Director, absorbing information. My arts organization background includes being an Usher Supervisor, Artist Services Assistant, and a Music Librarian. I am not too sure on what I want to do for a career, but I know I will have a basic understanding of things including Front of House, technical aspects, and administrative roles.
