There are several wordpress plugins for structured data. Here’s one site that rates some of them: https://rich-snippets.io/best-structured-data-plugin-for-wordpress/

Hi Kevin, here’s what I found on Joomla: https://extensions.joomla.org/extension/google-structured-data/
Frédéric Julien

My colleague Annelise Larson has been strongly recommending Schema Pro as a WordPress plugin. I also read good things about RankMath. On a French-language forum, someone reported that RankMath is particularly good with event data. Do Tammy, Caitlin, Inga or anyone else have specific plugin insights to share?
Caitlin Troughton
01:04:59
We will explore Joomla more!
Laurie Gillis

Would it be accurate to say that schema structured data makes website information easier for search engines to bridge the human language gap between the language of a website and the language used by the searcher (i.e. would French-language user have a easier time finding events posted in English only)?

The Arts Touring Alliance of AB website is not structured data
Suzanne Mealey
01:23:52
Still trying to figure out how to do that.

what Suzanne said...
Jack Chen
01:26:34
Yes, we have in the way of using a WP plugin like SEO and Schema. www.InnerSpaceConcerts.ca
Inga Petri
01:32:15
Tammy - can you talk about how your company is responding to events moving online via structured data? Has schema.org updated how events are structured to account for online events?
Inga Petri
01:35:33
Who has access to footlight right now? Is it just the cohorts you are working with or is there a public version, yet?
Inga Petri
01:39:35
One more question - Google has a structured data checker tool that allows me to test for structured data. Is that the most useful tool for arts events at this time then - while I await footlight public version?
Frédéric Julien
01:42:02
A sector-owned knowledge graph built with Footlight would help with performing arts discoverability. It could also enable presenting networks such as Atlantic Presenters Association or Arts Touring Alliance of Alberta to query the knowledge graph to access strategic information in order to better support the sector. Think of all the COVID-19 surveys being circulated these days: what if most of that information was readily available in real time and you no longer needed to provide it via a survey? I get quite carried away by such a possibility!
Katherine Munro
01:47:01
I hope your knowledge graph will include the websites of individual artists too!

Tools for adding structured data (for beginners) from Googles Search Console help: https://support.google.com/webmasters/topic/4599161?hl=en&ref_topic=9456381
