Seek 2012 Lighting Session Proposals

David Borron Lighting Design & Technology Commission

As the final touches are being put on the programming for the 2011 Conference & Stage Expo in Charlotte, the Lighting Design & Technology Commission is also in the planning stage for the 2012 conference in Long Beach and beyond, and is seeking help.

The Commission strives to make the sessions presented at each conference pertinent to the wide-ranging interests of the membership. Some of the general areas covered annually include education, health and safety, skill building, international approach to design and technology, and what’s new in the lighting technology.

Most sessions offered during any particular conference begin with an idea from a Commission member. Recent sessions have covered a wide area of subjects from the latest technology to how modern lighting design evolved, from working in the professional theatre to alternate careers for designers and technicians, from how to make due with little budget to designing a Broadway production. Any session idea within the realm of lighting design and technology will be considered.

Suggest a favorite session from a past conference to see again, enhance skills in a specific area, learn new ideas for classroom presentations, share an area of expertise, or propose any other idea for a session. Send ideas to Dave Borron, Vice-Commissioner Programming 2012 at drborron@stcloudstate.edu. Be as specific as possible.
