Host an AoMG
Gatherings like festivals, concerts, and other special events are simultaneously powerful and vulnerable. Embracing a whole community approach to safety and preparedness means helping event producers master the art of mass gatherings. The symposia feature indoor panels, presentations, and learning tours through the hosting festival led by recognized experts.
Thanks to the support of Performing Arts Readiness (PAR), you can apply to host an Art of Mass Gatherings in your community, free of charge for up to 50 participants. PAR and Majestic Collaborations will work directly with your team as well as other local agencies and organizations to co-develop a symposium that is locally relevant while also providing an opportunity to learn from national and international experts in the areas of event safety, accessibility, sustainability, and community engagement. See below for more details about what to expect.
