YES IS A WORLD – 2014 National Council of Arts Administrators Conference


yes is a world
& in this world of
yes live
(skillfully curled)
all worlds

from “love is a place” by E.E. Cummings


I’m honored to be invited by Mel Ziegler to speak at the 42nd annual gathering of the National Council of Arts Administrators in September, alongside a truly amazing line up of speakers: Richard Lloyd, Stephen Tepper, David Owens, Saralyn Reece Hardy, Pablo Helguera, Jon Rubin and Ruby Lerner.

From their web site: “The world is the new studio. Artists are involved in an ever-expanding production involving constituents beyond the art world and beyond the market place. As educational institutions, how do we respond to this massive shift in artistic attitude? Is there a balance to be found between 19th and 20th century models and the new 21stcentury practice centered around global and social interconnectedness? This conference will investigate the expanding field of art by exploring the influences of globalization, art education, and integrated practice. We will carefully look at our role as educators of creativity, influencers on our institutions as a whole, and members of our local and global communities.”

I’ll be speaking on the topic “The Art and Science of Collaboration”. Visuals from my presentation are available here on Prezi.
