I have been missing in action the past week in order to work on a project near and dear to my heart. I have been seeing a need for an audience development for the arts conference, a place to actually learn a few of the ins and outs while being able to exchange ideas with one’s peers. I have been to many other events where people end up saying “We really need to learn about audience development.” Now instead of talking about the need, here is your chance to learn!
Today I am unveiling the Audience Development for the Arts Symposium which will take place on May 14th in Chicago at the Catalyst Ranch. From 8am – 4:30pm, there is a full day of quick presentations with Q&A sessions, and an hour for talking amongst your peers to brainstorm even more. We have speakers from across the country with varying backgrounds and involvement in the arts. We have people from the 4 main disciplines – music, dance, theatre and visual art.
On Friday and Saturday night, we will be inviting you to a fun event. Chicago is fantastic for the arts as you probably know already.
For future blogs, tomorrow we will be having our first guest blogger. On Friday, I will be unleashing my blog about out of the box fund raisers, a request from my twitter friends.
Thank you and have a wonderful rest of your day!
