Topic for P.M.Arts 2013 Conference:

CAN SOCIAL MEDIA BE USED TO SUPPORT THE STUDENT PRODUCTION PROCESS?

Sunday, March 24, 2013     3pm – 5 pm    FREE (but we need a penny for your thoughts)

Hosted by Susann Hudson and Peter Fleming

 

Most students, if not all, it seems, are tied to their cellphones, tablets, and laptops.  In a world where social media plays an such an important role in our lives, are Facebook and Twitter compatible with the traditional discipline and hierarchy associated with our industry?

Our discussions will include:

- how are individual schools using (or not using) social media within the production curriculum?

- can social media sites, like Facebook, replace the paper callboard?

- who manages the social media experiences on a student production?

- is YouTube a viable training tool?

- what is the future of social media in the world of the theatre training?

 

Bring your best success story or your worst pet peeve.
