Creative Conversations 2016: Advocacy For The Arts

All change begins with a conversation, but getting the minds to meet can be a tall order in our sunny yet sprawling city!

Celebrate National Arts & Humanities Month as Creative Conversations convenes emerging leaders and industry veterans to discuss local arts, culture and creativity; have a dialogue about real issues; and discuss approaches and solutions to some of the biggest obstacles faced by San Diego organizations and residents.

Hosted by Rising Arts Leaders San Diego, Creative Conversation 2016: Advocacy & the Arts will take place Oct. 19 at 6 to 8 p.m. at the San Diego Public Library.

This year’s theme, Advocacy & the Arts, will be a platform to:
• Introduce you to the vital role advocacy plays in the arts and culture world
• Discuss issues affecting artists and arts organizations today
• Connect arts leaders with government officials and staff
