Acting Out: Leadership for Social Change

  • The Lark

In moments of political, social, and environmental stress, how can artists and administrators work towards taking more effective action on the most pressing issues in their communities? How might we strategically unite and collectively pool our skills, knowledge, and resources to promote change and resist compromising our values? And as emerging leaders in the field, how can we develop the leadership skills that will best facilitate and support work that moves the needle on our most critical challenges?

Part presentation, part workshop, part discussion, this event will center on hearing about effective strategies for social change in the arts from leaders in art and activism, as well as work towards developing participants’ approach to leading this work effectively as an artist or arts administrator.

Authentic Arts Programming: A Discussion of the Creation of Genuine Arts Experiences for Creator and Community

  • The DiMenna Center for Classical Music

What is authentic arts programming and how do we, as an arts community, continue to create experiences with this authenticity in mind?Have you ever cancelled or altered programming because it didn't feel authentic? Can arts organizations "measure" the authenticity of their programming? If so, how?
