Studium to explore public programming

PORT ANGELES — Drawing on more than a decade of event production in person and online, Tilly Hinton will share her principles for humanizing the experience during Peninsula College’s Studium Generale event at 12:30 p.m. today.

The online presentation, “Production Values: Hidden Qualities of High-Impact Experiences & Events,” is free and is open to the public.

Join the Zoom meeting at 19155703 (meeting ID: 824 1915 5703).

This session will take participants inside the usually hidden, inner workings of public programming to “explore how cultivating belonging, attentiveness and sustenance can transform audience experience,” according to a press release.

“Gathering together is one of the most important aspects of being human, and so it’s imperative to make sure that the production values of events make them effervescently humanizing,” Hinton said in the release.

These principles apply to gatherings of every scale, from crafting an event, a conference, a birthday party, a symposium, a staff retreat, a dinner with friends or anything else.

Hinton is a cultural producer, author and strategist, an Australian who now lives in Los Angeles.

For the final quarter of 2020, she was the startup catalyst for the ambitious Rose River Memorial project, a handcrafted national monument to COVID-19 deaths.

She has master’s and doctorate degrees about the LA River’s recent social history, exploring the ecological and socio-cultural importance of damaged urban landscapes. She is writing a book about it.

Her expertise spans research, volunteer management, strategic writing, grants and awards development, and cultural production.

She has more than 16 years in secondary and higher education and 14 years as a cultural producer and researcher.
