A bunch of speaking opportunities have come up over the next six weeks that’ll have me covering a wide range of topics, many of them for students and emerging arts leaders. Especially if you live in the New York City metro region, you’ll have a number of chances to see me in public in the near future. I also have some exciting things lining up for the summer, and I’ll be sure to share those with you when the time comes. In the meantime, though, here’s my speaking schedule for late February through March:

Sunday, February 26
State of NYC Dance Symposium
Gina Gibney Dance Center
890 Broadway, 5th Floor

(I’ll be speaking on the “Data on NYC Dance” panel from 11-12:15 about Fractured Atlas’s research on fiscally sponsored dance projects with Carrie Blake.)

Saturday, March 10
“Innovative Strategies in Arts Leadership”

March 23-25
Arts Enterprise Summit
Claremont Graduate University

Info and registration
(I’ll be giving a workshop on “The Well-Informed Arts Professional” from 1:30-2:45pm on Saturday the 24th.)

During this time period, I’ll also be guest lecturing on “Arts, Economics, and Community Development” for Maria Guralnik’s “Making the Case for the Arts” class at Purchase College this coming Monday, and participating in a student colloquium at NYU on the subject of “Social Entrepreneurship in the Arts” on March 30. Unfortunately, those events aren’t open to the public, but wish me luck anyway!

Finally, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that C4, the collaborative chorus that I founded in 2005 and rejoined this past fall, isperforming twice next week in New York City. The concert is called “A Loss for Words” and features all music with either no or nontraditional lyrics, all composed within the past 25 years. You can learn more and buy tickets (powered by Fractured Atlas’s artful.ly ticketing system) here.

PS – this post was inspired in part by my recent discovery that a couple of panels that I’ve participated on in yesteryear were recorded and were subsequently posted to the web for public consumption. If you’re curious, here are a few that I didn’t know were available. If I find more, I’ll post them here or create an archive elsewhere on the site.
