Taking Your Program From Live to Livestream

Morris Arts welcomes all Teaching Artists to attend a virtual workshop

Taking Your Program From Live to Live Stream

Presented by John Bertles and Carina Piaggio

Date And Time:

Thursday, May 14, 2020

3:30 AM – 5:00PM

About this Workshop:

The current crisis has put enormous pressure on artists to adapt to a new and rapidly-changing digital reality. We know that all of our Teaching Artists are struggling with ways to bring your programs online and reconnect with schools and this workshop will provide an overview of online tools and ways to think about shifting live content into online content. 

Our presenters, John Bertles and Carina Piaggio are teaching artists, administrators and and professional development specialists with the Kennedy Center – National Arts Partners program. They are also the husband and wife co-founders of Bash the Trash Environmental Arts. As Distance Learning Coordinator for Carnegie Hall’s Education Program, Bertles re-imagined live programs to bring them to an online format. Over the past six weeks they have drawn on all their experience to transform all their programs to live-streaming programs.

They will give an overview on:

  • Using the Technology 
  • Transitioning your Show 
  • Interacting with Students 
  • Connecting with Schools 

Beyond the technology they’ll take a look at translating the distilled essence of your show into a new medium. While it’s true that taking programs online can limit some interactivity, it also opens opportunities that may go beyond what can be offered in live performance.

This will be a Zoom presentation limited to 100 participants. We are going to share this presentation with other Arts in Education organizations so please sign up early to secure a spot.


Who Should Attend:

If you are an artist who has lost all your work, the presentation is our gift to you.



It’s free to sign up and attend. If you feel you have gotten something out of the workshop, and would like to make a contribution to the hosts you may elect to “pay as you exit” on a sliding scale: $10-?? using Paypay or Venmo.
