Pre-recorded keynote presentations will be available online prior to the symposium. This panel will convene our keynote speakers in a discussion moderated by Omari Rush, Executive Director of CultureSource.
Title: Midway: A Panel at the Intersection
Informed by the keynote panel discussion, this discussion highlights the multi-hat wearing creatives in the field: those who balance the perspectives of “boots on the ground” and a 3,000 foot view as both creatives/artists and art administrators. All working out of the Midwest, the panel brings together folks from all edges of the arts & culture sector to delve into the middle ground where data and inequities in the arts meet.
|Presenters from the Arts, Entrepreneurship, and Innovation Lab, CultureSource, and Doris Duke Charitable Foundation fellows will wrap up the symposium series with final thoughts|
CultureSource is a member association serving cultural organizations and creative people across Southeast Michigan. As a regional service organization, we do this work through hosting professional development workshops that grow creative and leadership capacities, presenting programs that provide space for exchanging ideas about arts and culture, and leading initiatives that bring together stakeholders interested in the public accessing creative expression.
The mission of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation (DDCF) is to improve the quality of people’s lives through grants supporting the performing arts, environmental conservation, medical research and child well-being, and through preservation of the cultural and environmental legacy of Doris Duke’s properties. The Doris Duke Charitable Foundation focuses its support to the performing arts on contemporary dance, jazz and theater artists, and the organizations that nurture, present and produce them. DDCF is one of only two foundations in history to have received the National Medal of Arts from the National Endowment for the Arts, in special recognition of DDCF’s support of creative expression across the United States and “bold commitment” to artistic risk, which has helped performing artists share their talents and enriched the cultural life of the nation.
The Arts, Entrepreneurship, and Innovation Lab is a project of the National Endowment for the Arts in cooperation with Indiana University. This project was partially supported by grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.
