I just learned of the upcoming Americans for the Arts Annual Conference: “Risk and Reward: Balancing Acts in Arts and Community”
From the website homepage:
“Risk and Reward: Balancing Acts in Arts and Community is more than just a theme, it’s the approach we’ve taken for the whole experience.
The convention is packed full of edgy ideas and useful tools. This year, we introduce seven new program tracks that ensure both close connection with your colleagues and expanded opportunity for crossover among important areas of the larger arts field.
Convention highlights include the national release of Arts & Economic Prosperity III, the culminating session of the MetLife Foundation National Arts Forum Series, the introduction of new recognition awards at our Annual Report and Awards Ceremony, guest artist Jenny Holzer and the Public Art Year in Review, as well as inspiring speakers, ARTventure tours, and all the events we know you enjoy!”
