1. The workroom or atelier of an artist.
  2. A room or place for instruction or experimentation in one of the performing arts.
  3. An entirely new way for designers and technicians to stay informed, increase visibility, and interact with peers.

What Is Studio Live Design?
Studio Live Design is a member-based platform providing designers and technicians an integrated, multi-platform approach to staying informed, increasing visibility, and interacting with peers.

Who Is It For?
Studio Live Design is for working and aspiring designers and technicians in all fields of live events: theatre, concerts, corporate events, themed entertainment, opera, dance, architainment, etc.

Why Should I Become A Member?
The 21st-century designer and technician are wired in ways previously unimaginable. As early adopters of technology, they consume their content much differently than they used to less than five years ago, and in a wider variety of platforms. Training and education remain vital to their success and livelihoods, and while there are more opportunities for such training than ever before, there is often less time available to take advantage of it. And the market has no real platform that enables both aspiring and established designers and technicians to showcase their work and skills. Studio Live Design helps address the unique needs of a modern designer and technician.

How Does It Work?
Studio Live Design will offer different levels of membership, from basic free membership with limited access to content and benefits, to All Access membership, which provides a deeply immersive experience in the live design universe through a variety of touch points.

What Does It Include?
Depending on the level of membership, Studio Live Design gets you discounts to the events produced by the Live Design franchise, including LDI, The Live Design Master Classes, The Envision Symposium, etc; access to gated content on the Live Design website, including sessions recorded at our various events; a subscription to 12 issues of a cutting-edge, interactive, tablet-only version of Live Design magazine; the ability to post and share your work with like-minded entertainment technology professionals on a new feature of the website called Designer Showcase; and exclusive invitations to networking parties, salons, talks, and other events throughout the year.
