Americans for the Arts is excited to bring you a monthly series of informal discussions about supporting individual artists. As part of Americans for the Arts ongoing program, Arts Administrators Essentials: Supporting Individual Artists, these monthly "Coffee Chats" are your opportunity to hear from individuals and organizations in the arts and culture field that support individual artists as part of their everyday work. Each month, we will bring you a new topic to support your work with artists. Our topic for this month will be about activating artists.
How can you activate artists in your local community?
Join Edwige Charlot, Providence, RI based artist and strategist, as she discusses activating artists. This conversation will discuss:
- Activation through Connection - How do we bridge the gap within our creative communities?
- Activation as Support - What is needed and desired by your arts community and your creative professionals?
- Activation as Propellent--- How are you connecting the dots to the communities at large, the communities across sectors and discipline?
This project is supported in part by the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation.
