SESSION I | Independent Artists: Bridging the Gaps
Some of the most ground-breaking artists today are the independent creators building bridges between institutions, genres, and audiences.  Look around and you’ll find orchestras collaborating with DJs, ballet companies dabbling in fashion, and participatory arts festivals in the desert.  In this session we’ll engage directly with some of these artists as well as presenters, exploring what inspires them and what makes specific projects successful across the globe.

SESSION II | CultureTrack: A New View of Cultural Consumption
Preparing your organization for the audiences of the future can seem a daunting task.  While nobody has a crystal ball to tell the future, we now have ample research on the four key generations participating in cultural activities.  In this session we’ll hear from Arthur Cohen and 15 years of study and then join experts about the shifting motivations, attitudes, and barriers brought on by the multi-generational work force, as well as what future audiences will seek.  

Moderator | Arthur Cohen (LaPlaca Cohen, United States)

Speakers | Allegra Galvin (Quarterhouse, United Kingdom), Tisa Ho (Hong Kong Arts Festival Society, Hong Kong), Shelton g. Stanfill (SgS Ltd., United States), and Carolyn Warren (The Banff Centre, Canada)

SESSION III | New Tools for a New World
It seems like almost every day there’s a new app, new tool or a new social media platform changing the way we work.  With so many new technologies it’s hard to know which ones are worth our limited time and resources.  That’s where we come in.  This rapid-fire PechaKucha-like session will introduce you to some of the most exciting new tools being used by artists and leaders in the field today. 
  Speakers | Leon Caren (We Are Public & Subbacultcha!, Netherlands), Dede Flemming (The Do LaB, USA), Kacie Hultgren, (PrettySmallThings, USA) and Bas Morsch (We Are Public & Subbacultcha!, Netherlands)

SESSION IV | The Great Debate: The Artists' Voice
Perhaps the most energizing format to engender a dialogue occurs through debate.  In this session we’ll engage in two different and yet related topics that explore artistic leadership. Over the past year, these two topics have received hot public debate and we now want to bring the debate to ISPA with you as the ultimate judges!
  Speakers |  Elizabeth Bradley (Tisch School of the Arts, USA), James Early (Smithsonian Institution, USA), Rachael Maza (ILBIJERRI Theatre Company, Australia), Zingi Mkefa (Arts Journalist. USA)

Join in the conversation we began in Bogotá!  Following ISPA’s inspiring international congress, we will continue the conversation of the performing arts as an agent of social change.  What enables some arts leaders to think locally but act globally? How are these leaders navigating complex political issues, and what can we learn from them? Join as we continue the journey that began 8 months ago and 3,000 miles away.
