Arts and Civic Engagement

Posted by on October 6, 2008

“Arts and Civic Engagement,” Alliance of Artists Communities 18th annual conference, Seattle, Wash., November 12-15, 2008.

What does it mean as an artist-centered organization to be a full participant in civic life? How do we engage in the global community? How do we support artists working in social justice and public or community art? What responsibility do artists and arts organizations have to be civic leaders? How do we integrate support for artists, creativity, and innovation into public policy?

Seattle is rich with opportunities to address these questions ā€“ from its public art to its diverse population to its environmentalism and activism.

Join national and international leaders who engage artists and community, including artistsā€™ residency directors, arts funders, civic leaders, activists, artists, and others.
