GIA 2012 Conference



Community Engagement: Artists and Funders Working Together to Meet the Challenges

Organized by Barbara Schaffer Bacon, co-director, Animating Democracy, Americans for the Arts; Pam Korza, co-director, Animating Democracy, Americans for the Arts; Alyson Pou, professional development program director, Creative Capital.

Presented by Maria Bauman, director of education and community engagement, Urban Bush Women; Xavier Cortada, artist-in-residence, Florida International University College of Architecture + The Arts | Office of Engaged Creativity; Carlton Turner, director, Alternate ROOTS.

Space is limited at offsite sessions, so a ticket is re­quired. Tickets will be avail­able at the reg­is­tration desk beginning at 7:00 am on Tuesday mor­ning. If the tickets for a session are all gone, you will know that it is full and can make another choice.

Buses for offsite sessions will depart from the main entrance of the hotel at 2:00 pm on Tuesday.

As more and more artists are linking their creative work to community, civic, and social goals, arts funders are playing a significant role in supporting their efforts. While artists may begin a project with a vision for social change, complex circumstances and challenges can compromise the end result. What practical tools and skills do artists need to help insure that the full intention of their work is realized? In this session artists and funders will give a snapshot of key challenges socially engaged artists face and training models and specific professional development tools that have been used to successfully navigate complex projects, as well as mistakes made and lessons learned.
