Update: Richard Evans’ session (mentioned below) is now full. Conference registrants will receive information about the waiting list.
The Statewide Arts Conference taking place Sept. 18 at the Columbia Conference Center is chock full of opportunities to learn from experts and network with colleagues. For less than $100, you’ll have access to the kind of high-quality professional development usually found at regional and national conferences — and you don’t even have to leave the state!
The conference features not one, but two highly sought-after keynote speakers. National Book Award-winning poet and S.C. native Nikky Finney will kick off the conference, and Richard Evans of EmcArts will talk about adaptive change and innovation during lunch. Richard will also present a daylong session targeted at arts organizations and the complex changes we’re facing. Space is limited in this interactive session and seats are going fast; everyone who registers for the conference will receive details about signing up for Richard’s session.
Registration is just $98 per person, or $88 per person if you and a colleague register at the same time.
