Today Barbizon Lighting hosted a training session for students in the Roundabout Theatre's Theatrical Workforce Development Program (TWDP) in conjunction with IATSE Local 1 and other employment partners in the New York area.
At the Barbizon education seminar, students were introduced to different types of fixtures, rigging, and control. There were broad discussions on color temperature, lamp and fixture types, and how theatrical systems integration groups work on projects. They explained construction drawings, and the role of project managers and field service technicians on projects.
Barbizon's John Gebbie discusses theatrical systems integration.
The Theatrical Workforce Development Program (TWDP) reflects Roundabout and IATSE's efforts to provide underprivileged and underrepresented young adults access to career pathways in the technical theatre industry. This three-year program will train and place recent NYC public high school graduates into paying professional production positions.
The TWDP's goals are:
To break down the barriers that prevent disadvantaged young adults from gaining economic stability.
To bring equity and diversity to a field of high-quality, skill-based jobs in a growing economic sector.
To educate and encourage a new generation of passionate theatre professionals.
