Ovation Awards Informational Session
Monday, February 11, 2013
7:00pm - 8:30pm
Location: The Theatre @ Boston Court
70 North Mentor Avenue, Pasadena, CA

It is very important to the Ovation Rules Committee that the Ovation Awards continue to evolve in tandem with the community and that we continue to be in active dialogue with artists and producers about the Awards. As part of this effort, we are instituting regular Ovation Awards Information Sessions, where Ovation voters, artists, producers, or members of the general public can meet members of the Committee, learn about how the Ovation Awards function, give feedback, ask questions and discuss new rules.
We encourage any member of the community to attend, and in particular encourage new producers who are registering productions for Ovations consideration to participate.
On February 11, in addition to a basic overview of the Award rules and process, the Committee will also be discussing new rules relating to:
- Whether Ovation Voters can vote on productions they are affiliated with as a company member, board member, staff member, or in other ways
- Significant changes to how productions become eligible for Ovation consideration
- Recognition of presented, re-worked, re-mounted, and otherwise developed productions relative to completely original production
Additional Ovation Informational Sessions will be held in April and September.
99-Seat Theatre Community Meeting
The date and time of the next meeting for 99-seat plan producers will be announced soon per the Producers League Transitional Committee. Please check back often so that you don't miss it!

Otis Report on the Creative Economy
Monday, February 4
Location: Los Angeles County Arts Commission
1055 Wilshire Blve, Suite 800, Los Angeles, CA 90017
*Seating is limited so reservations are highly recommended.
Our first interactive conversation will focus on the Otis report on the Creative Economy. Let's dive in and identify ways we might leverage this data set to improve the field.
- What gets addressed in this report?
- What's left out?
- Why does it matter?
Let's make real change.
Think of it as a hackathon for research in LA arts and culture. The OTIS report can be found here: www.otis.edu/creative_economy
Moderated by Terence McFarland, CEO of LA STAGE Alliance.
This will have an active participatory dialogue component. We will share this event's findings with the Creative Economy Task force working group convened by the LA Department of Cultural Affairs.
