All-Access SAEM Summer Workshop for High School Students
The annual All-Access Sport, Arts and Entertainment Management Summer Workshop for high school students consists of three days packed with info on what it’s like to work in these industries.
“If you’re interested (in SAEM), you should come to the workshop. It was a crash course on everything and gives you a good idea if you want to get involved with it,” said Taylor Barnes from Blackhawk High School in Beaver Falls, Pa.
The All-Access workshop includes:
- Indoor and outdoor tour of Stage AE;
- Backstage and facility tours of the Benedum Center for Performing Arts, the Byham Theater, and the Pittsburgh CLO Cabaret theatres;
- Meet and greet with Greg Joseph, bass guitarist and vocalist for The Clarks, who will give a performer’s perspective on the entertainment business;
- Workshops covering the areas of event management, legal issues, sales development, talent representation, venue design and marketing led by SAEM faculty; and
- A tour of Point Park's campus in Downtown Pittsburgh.
The total cost to attend the three-day summer workshop is $150, which includes lunch each day and admission and tours for all venues.
