EmcArts is pleased to announce the first National Innovation Summit for Arts & Culture, which will take place October 20-23 in Denver and online.
From now until July 25, share your ideas and inspirations with the 7 Finalists as they develop strategies to address their adaptive challenge.
Join the EmcArts/ArtsFwd team on Monday, June 24th from 7:00-9:00PM at our office in New York City for a live Creative Conversation about lateral thinking strategies.
We kicked off the series with our first live video chat on Tuesday, June 12 with a conversation with our spring Blogging Fellows.
Finalists will gather ideas and inspirations from big thinkers, leaders in the field, and ArtsFwd readers to help them address their adaptive challenge.
Over the next few days, we’ll be auditing the Challenge votes and determining the official results. On June 7th, we’ll announce the official roster of Finalists.
UPDATE: Voting is now closed (12:00am Eastern, June 1st). Many thanks to all who participated!
