Community Engagement Strategies for Small Arts Organizations
presented by the Pittsburgh Print Group
An exciting public roundtable discussion featuring local arts administrators Fran Flaherty, Charlotte Ka, Duncan MacDiarmid, Maritza Mosquera, Anne Mulgrave, Rachel Saul Rearick, Errol "Mobutu" Reynolds, Aaron Regal, Zena Ruiz, Fitzhugh Shaw, Tresa Varner and Marcel Walker
In cities around the globe, there is an exciting movement afoot to share ideas and models that help connect artists more deeply with their communities. This roundtable discussion led by Rachel Saul Rearick, Arts and Culture Manager, Pittsburgh International Airport will focus on relationship building and the core of the relationship as mutuality. While audience development works to have members of the public feel a relationship with the arts as created and/or presented by the artist or organization, community engagement seeks to develop relationships that potentially transform both individuals external to the arts and the art itself.
Learn from Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council, Anne Mulgrave, Manager of Grants and Accessibility about grant opportunities and reimbursement that provide arts and culture organizations to conduct outreach programs, accommodate patrons with disabilities and current initiatives. Also listen to lesser known small arts guilds and organizations that work quietly but efficiently toward social change.
