As someone who works in the arts, I consider myself extraordinarily fortunate that over the past 18 years, I’ve only had two moves; one of which was to a new location in the same city.
Today marks move number three and, fortunately, it’s another intra-city move. Knock on wood, everything will unfold as planned but sometimes, moves are anything but controlled.
Case in point, and the subject of today’s #TBT, is the Nashville Symphony when they were forced out of their home in 2010 due to disastrous flooding.
Not only did we cover the venue’s construction over 2005-2007 but we examined how the orchestra dealt with displacement during reconstruction. In and of itself, it serves as a wonderful benchmark for other groups to draw on for inspiration should they find themselves in similar circumstances.
