Audio-Visual support in public spaces
Providing audio visual support for any public facility is always a challenge especially when it is a museum. Unlike event venues and performance halls there are many other obstacles to consider. Concerns such as hours open to the public, power availability and cable routing can often be a challenge. Chase Creative has had the opportunity to service many events at the Grand Rapids Public Museum and learned first hand how to manage the challenges of staging an audiovisual event within the parameters of the museum.
Challenges with staging in public spaces
Past events had to be loaded in and set up based on the non-public hours available so you learn to work in increments sometimes taking multiple days to ready an event. Supplying audio and theatrical lighting support to multiple levels and an open atrium floor plan can create a number of cable paths that need to be properly dressed and safely routed throughout the building. Though there are challenges to staging an event in the building there is elegance to the building. The room is a canvas that affords you the ultimate audio-visual experience. Chase Creative is always excited whenever we are called to collaborate on a project with the Grand Rapids Public Museum’s creative team.
