SESSION 1 | The Value Proposition: Artists, Institutions, and Community

We look to artists to tell our stories, encourage a dialogue, and spark debate. But are all stories equal and who decides whose stories are told? In the time of “fake news” there is an increasing pressure to silence or deny dissenting opinions at a time when dialogue is essential. How do we work together to walk the line between reflecting the values of the communities we serve and/or challenging them?

Increasingly other sectors are embracing performance as a tool to enhance learning, messaging, and understanding. Libraries, museums, social justice organizations, and indeed brands are seeing performance as an opportunity to become more relevant. What is this intrinsic power of the arts and how are we leveraging it to expand our impact and reach?

SESSION 4 | Tales of the City: Creative Placemaking

There has been regional investment in global cultural planning and infrastructure in recent years. Much of that investment is in cities aiming to break down barriers, bring people together, and provide safe and creative communities. How do we best determine the needs of future artists and future audiences and new ways to engage? What inequities can be impacted by these investments?
