Indiana, Michigan, Ohio: Colloquium on the Arts and Community Change

Embracing Community Change through the Arts

The Indiana Arts Commission, the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs and the Ohio Arts Council are organizing a two-day colloquium in April for constituents from their tri-state area. Embracing Community Change through the Arts will focus on strategies for building diversity in arts organizations, with a special focus on engaging increasing numbers of culturally, geographically and socially diverse residents as well as underserved populations who experience barriers to participating in the arts. A team of 15 speakers and presenters will help attendees assess how their communities are changing and provide tools to take actionable steps to embrace those changes together. The first day of the colloquium will highlight best practices in leadership development, decision making, programming and community involvement. Day two will focus on practical planning tools for participating communities. In addition to the three sponsoring state arts agencies, the colloquium is supported by a variety of public and private partners, including The Joyce Foundation: Improving the Quality of Life for People in the Great Lakes Region and Across the Country; the Indiana Governor’s Council for People with Disabilities; the University of Notre Dame’s DeBartolo Performing Arts Center; Arts Midwest; the Notre Dame Center for Arts and Culture; and the National Endowment for the Arts.
