FREE: National Innovation Summit for Arts & Culture
2013: Leaving the Shore
250 pioneering arts and culture leaders to converge in Denver from October 20th to 23rd for a non-traditional conference to celebrate and advance innovation in the sector. The Summit will bring together - in person and virtually - arts leaders from around the world for a high-profile event exploring the challenges, discoveries, and achievements of daring to depart from traditional approaches.
The Virtual Summit will live-stream 27 dynamic, thematically linked 12-minute talks that highlight the remarkable and mostly untold stories of innovative projects unfolding in arts and culture organizations. These talks are about letting go of the certainties and "best practices" of the past by encouraging a spirit of inquiry and experimenting with "next practices." The takeaways: practical tips and a big dose of inspiration.
The Talks and discussions that follow will be organized around six themes:
- Taking Collective Action (5 p.m. - 10/20)
- Co-Creating with the Public (10 a.m. - 10/21)
- Artists as Agents of Change (12 p.m. - 10/21)
