This video documents the strategic working session, "Virtual Stages and Performance Platforms," co-presented by EUNIC DC and CODAME Art + Tech. The session gathered leaders and innovators in the performing arts and virtual platforms to explore new formats for digital programming. Partnerships and experimentation continue to create and expand knowledge of the directions in which we could continue taking virtual programming. Documenting session outcomes and charting a path forward for an uncertain, but increasingly virtual, creative future, this video envisions what we might need to make digital cultural programming curatorially coherent, innovative and exploratory, high quality, and interesting for an audience in front of a screen.
