We’re gearing up for an outstanding conference around the theme of CHANGE – acknowledge, anticipate, adapt. Change can transform and improve a situation, or it can wreak havoc with lightning speed if you’re unprepared. Come learn from those who have successfully managed the challenges and the opportunities of change. Sessions will include topics of interest to artists, arts organizations and community partners. Here’s just a sample of what’s in store:old cellphones
