Setting the stage for a day of deep thinking and lively conversations at the Alliance's upcoming conference re:generation / BC Cultural Roundtable 2016, about the changing landscape of our arts and cultural leadership, will be a morning panel discussion which will include SFU Woodward’s Cultural Unit director Howard Jang, Writers Festival founder Alma Lee, and PuSh Festival managing director Roxanne Duncan.
The panel discussion, focusing on the twin themes of “Engagement & Support” and “Transition & Legacy," will follow a keynote by Emiko Ono, a program officer with The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation’s Performing Arts Program. Ms. Ono is the author of a recently released study, “Moving Arts Leadership Forward: A Changing Landscape”, which tackles head-on many of the issues to be discussed at re:generation.
re:generation / BC Cultural Roundtable 2016 takes place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursday, June 9 at New Westminster's Anvil Centre.
Throughout the day our conversations will include views from across the career spectrum, from founder/pioneer though mid-career and just beginning, as we discover what each has to teach and learn from the others.
The BC Cultural Roundtable is the new name for what in previous years was the Alliance’s annual Arts Summit. The BC Cultural Roundtable will be the annual keystone of the emerging BC Cultural Roundtable Network, bringing together voices from similar gatherings around the province.
