Food for Thought
As stated on Facebook, I strongly believe that each state belonging to ESTA should consider the idea of conducting a virtual state festival in 2021. I have created the "ESTALive!" page as a place to promote exchange of ideas, encourage discussion, and elicit suggestions and comments from you as we collectively explore the possibilities and potential of a virtual theater festival.
To aid us in this endeavor, I will post some links to helpful apps and tutorials on this page (see "Food for Thought" on the left), and I will share more of my thoughts on this topic. I encourage you to share your views, both pro and con, with us, as well as any observations or experiences you might have had in this area.

outline of the pros and cons of holding an online state festival that may serve as a starting point for discussion.
