    Each year, executive leadership and senior staff of the country’s united arts funds gather in a different location to discuss best practices, trends, challenges, and opportunities that this field faces. United Arts Funds (UAF) are organizations or local arts agencies whose main function is to raise money from local individuals, businesses, and foundations to regrant to local arts institutions and provide support to the cultural community. UAFs seek to raise money to provide ongoing support to arts groups by consolidating cultural fundraising efforts in one organization and use their knowledge of the cultural community to disperse the funds accordingly. More and more, the UAFs operate as full-serve local arts agencies. This call is welcome to anyone interested in hearing about the primary topics that came up at the Leadership Retreat, and for those who wish to learn more about this field.

The reframing derives from new understandings of how the field is growing in the real world, and recognition of the limitations of the ways we have traditionally worked.
