If you haven't yet registered to attend the Alliance's June 9 conference, re:generation / BC Cultural Roundtable 2016, now's the time! We're also pleased to offer a webcast of the morning's programming to those unable to attend in person. Register now to join us at the conference or watch online.
Shifting demographics, cross-generational workplaces, and increased economic pressures have led to changes in our workplaces and sector that require new strategies and approaches. Join us at re:generation / BC Cultural Roundtable 2016 for some dynamic conversations across the spectrum of career stages, from founder/pioneer through mid-career and just beginning, as we discover what each has to teach and learn from one another.
We're pleased to offer webcasting of the conference's morning session, thanks to the services of Bob Baker Creative Connections. To help cover the costs of this service, registration for individuals or for viewing hubs/groups of any size will be $25 plus tax.
The webcast coverage will include:
- The morning opening remarks and a video welcome from Minister Peter Fassbender;
- "What We Have Learned" presentations by: Gillian Wood, director of the Arts and Cultural Development Branch of the province's Ministry of Community, Sport, and Cultural Development; Roxanne Duncan, managing director of PuSh International Performing Arts Festival; Liz Shorten, vice-president of operations with the BC branch of Canadian Media Production Association and board member of the Cultural Human Resources Council (CHRC); and Mitchell Saddleback, actor and arts administration intern with MISCELLANEOUS Productions.
- The keynote address by Emiko Ono, author of "Moving Arts Leadership Forward: A Changing Landscape", and
- A panel discussion on the day's themes moderated by Official Opposition Critic for arts and culture Spencer Chandra Herbert.
