The Making Connections: Transforming Arts Leadership series features arts leaders addressing contemporary topics in arts management. This happy hour event starts with a discussion of artist-centered initiatives such as collectives, alternative arts spaces, socially engaged practice, and participatory art.

The panel will explore how arts influencers can strike a balance between sustainability, community engagement, and creativity, while better serving artists in their projects and careers. Following this dialogue, there will be a networking session aimed at both emerging and mid-career arts mangers and artists.
