2012 Conference Blog
"Creative place-making is of relevance to anyone in the arts community only in so far as that community is interested in engaging with the world around them. Arts organizations and artists can choose to work in their own communities without intersecting with the greater world. But when they go beyond the confines of the studio or the stage, they can have broader and more profound impacts." NAMAC 2012 Conference guest blogger, Ima Musing, sat down with a featured conference plenarian, Gülgün Kayim, to discuss her thoughts on creative placemaking and the role of the arts in civic life.
Breakthrough music producer, audio innovator, and digital pioneer Hank Shocklee will be a featured plenarian at NAMAC 2012: Leading Creatively, to discuss "Artists as Leaders" and digital rights. In preparation for these momentous conversations, NAMAC sat down with Shocklee to ask his thoughts on arts leadership and arts innovation in the coming age.
Thanks to a constellation of stellar supporters, NAMAC is excited to offer Minnesota residents and organizations a variety of scholarships and incentives to participate in our upcoming national conference, Leading Creatively,coming to Minneapolis from Sept. 6-8.
