Network Performing Arts Production Workshops (NPAPWS) facilitate outreach to new user communities in the arts and humanities areas, particularly by demonstrating the use of research networks in supporting real-time musical, dance and artistic performances. Besides building a community with specific requirements in terms of bandwidth, network reliability, jitter and latency, the workshops demonstrate the use of specific audio, video and lighting techniques, tools and applications to support teaching, auditions and remote performances. Finally, the workshops provide opportunities for collaboration among institutions across NRENs, GÉANT, Internet2 and other intercontinental research networks.
