In the past, the performing community and crew community have often been entirely separate entities with very little oversight or regulation. This has caused stress within both communities due to a lack of resources, available time, and inefficient communication. As a guiding body, VPAC Board wants to set parameters around providing crew + technicians for VPAC Organizations’ performances. The performing and technical communities have a symbiotic relationship, but they can only benefit each other if they work together. The same type of collaboration performing arts groups have with each other should also exist with crew: this includes clear, preparatory communication and a welcoming, inclusive environment. VPAC Crew is an integral part of our #community!
