Creative Conversation: Community Engagement in the Arts

Recorded On: 10/25/2011

How do you change the conversation in your community by activating creativity to engage residents and increase participation in community events? Americans for the Arts is hosting its own Creative Conversation, in honor of National Arts & Humanities Month, to encourage creative community engagement that taps into a community's arts assets. Hear arts and community leaders share examples of how they are getting creative with community engagement and connecting the arts with larger community initiatives. Then join a moderated conversation about opportunities, challenges, and impact. Get tips for how to sustain engagement. Ask questions, and leave the webinar with ideas for enhancing the engagement in your own community along with resources for continuing the learning.
