Join in Discussing an Organization for Utah Artists’ Support
Saturday, November 6, 9—4
Wasatch Retreat Center, 75 South 200 East, SLC
With artists, supporters, advocates, appreciators in we will “think out loud together” in conversation around supporting Utah artists—
composers, choreographers, writers, filmmakers, visual artists . . .
Why does this idea have meaning for you?
What kinds of support would you appreciate?
Think broadly, envision and brainstorm. Then think more deeply in chosen areas of interest.
Facilitated by Tenneson Woolf, The Berkana Institute (supporting public inquiry into the new organizational ideas, forms and leadership required for the future), and hosted by Tay Haines, formerly Artist Services, Utah Arts Council.
Possible activities and potential benefits through a nonprofit:
~ grants to artists (determined by peer review)~ virtual shared information: calls for artists, grants, residencies, auditions,
studio listings, health care information, jobs, an e-newsletter
~ training in business practices, marketing, and discipline-based topics
~ connection; nourishing a community of artists and their supporters
~ a shared voice: representation in civic, cultural, educational, and academic settings~ partnerships with city, county, state, arts organizations . . .
~ recognition of artists’ contribution to cultural and economic vitality
