Animating Democracy

Knowing how to create meaningful civic engagement is becoming a required skill set—as important as fundraising, planning, and marketing. Build your civic engagement muscle at this interactive workshop led by Animating Democracy Co-Founder Barbara Schaffer Bacon, featuring key concepts, principles, and practices of arts-based civic engagement.

CREATIVE AGING

The demand is exploding across the state for Creative Aging residencies lead by trained, professional artists. Artists are working in senior centers, community centers, residential communities, and even health care settings. The June 23rd conference will reinforce what we have learned about the benefits of creative involvement for seniors; but we also learn from the experiences of teaching artists who are engaged in the work.

Impact Arts Main Day

The conference includes tracks led by industry experts that focus on nonprofit management, professional development for artists, and community and economic development through the arts. Learn more in the section below.

Artists U Intensive

Too many brilliant, mission-driven artists are exhausted, broke and overwhelmed. A constant sense of scarcity pits us against one another. And even those who find “success” struggle to build sustainable lives. How can we build balanced, productive, sustainable lives? In Artists U, facilitated by Andrew Simonet, we will share tools and principles artists have used to thrive.
