Calling all Americans for the Arts attendees and statheads in and around the windy city: we are taking over Chicago!

We are thrilled to announce not one, but two opportunities to geek out with us in person:

  • On Sunday, June 14 at 9:00 a.m. we will lead a full-length discussion session at the Americans for the Arts Annual Convention. “Building the Capacity to Create Change in Our Sector” will give you the inside scoop on how our 2014 shift in strategic direction came about, what our research process has to say about systemic change, and how it all applies in the real world. We’ll have ample opportunity for small-group dialogue, so this session is not to be missed. Information on registering for the convention is here.
  • Shortly afterwards, join us to continue the conversation and/or decompress at a special Welcome Reception for our readers and special guests. We will gather at the Chicago Cultural Center at 1:00 p.m. to meet, mingle, and unwind. The reception is free and you do not have to be an AFTA attendee to attend. If you will be at the conference, however, it’ll be a great way to wrap up your stay before heading to the airport. RSVP no later than June 1.

Hope to see you in June!
