The Essential Arts

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Let’s dig into the value and vibrancy of the rural arts scene and ask: What makes art essential in rural communities in this moment in time, and why?
This session will give participants tools to be better advocates for the arts in their communities, and it will be a great learning opportunity to better understand WHY the arts are so valuable. These Radically Rural panelists will use affirming language, data, and stories from the field that demonstrate the impact arts can have - from the individual to a group to a community-wide level.
After the discussion, the session will break out into smaller groups to dive into deeper questions about the current moment and how to maintain sustainability and strive for longevity within it. Can we imagine a radical reinvention of the sector together?
Let's pool our resources to make a case for essential arts and move forward together!
