Curtain for the Lviv Theatre of Opera and Ballet

Today we refresh our understanding of the literature that guides the safety and sustainability goals of lively art and special event setting on the #WiseCampus.  Consortia have evolved quickly in recent years, leading and lagging changes in the content creation and delivery domain.  With this evolution a professional discipline has emerged that requires training and certification in the electrotechnologies that contribute to “event safety”; among them:

Entertainment Services and Technology Association

Audio Engineering Society

Society of Motion Picture Technology Engineers

Audio Visual and Experience Association

Professional Lighting and Sound Association

Event Safety Alliance

National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security

Incumbent standards-setting organizations such as ASHRAE, ASTM, ICC, IEEE, NFPA have also discovered, integrated and promulgated event safety and sustainability concepts into their catalog of best practice titles; many already incorporated by reference into public safety law.   We explore relevant research on crowd management and spectator safety.
