REVOLUTION: Engaging Human Creativity calls for everyone to fight for the right to be an artist and to celebrate the contribution we make to our community through the arts.
Many of you have already joined us in this REVOLUTION: registration for the Alliance's annual conference (taking place June 8 in Vancouver, at Pyatt Hall and the Annex) has reached 75 percent capacity. Register soon to experience such program highlights as:
• Ben Cameron’s keynote note address: The international arts administration star, who has supervised multi-millions in arts grants, spent nine years on the Tony Award nominations committee, and delivered an exhilarating TED Talk about the power of arts, lets us in on what he describes as nothing less than a reformation happening in the art world—and it's all about your audience.
• Franco Boni’s Citizen Engagement workshop: Inspired by the way the Toronto theatre he directs has become a dynamic hub for the community, Boni shares insights on ways theatre can cause a scene beyond the stage.
• Cultural Diversity in Artistic Practice: Nina Buddhdev moderates a panel on a hot issue.
Featuring 15 additional great minds sharing insights on connections between creativity, innovation and social progress, REVOLUTION: Engaging Human Creativity, is the annual conference presented by BC Alliance for Arts + Culture.
