Hello art students,
You are invited to take part in a collaborative event that will bring together individuals and groups on campus working to cultivate arts and culture at University of Oregon.
Creative Conversations: Idea Lab is an a chance for student and community leaders, campus organizations and student groups, and involved faculty to come together for a collaborative discussion around arts and culture programming and leadership at the University of Oregon. While the event was created with a focus on individuals and groups working in arts and culture on campus, students will bring a valuable perspective, and may find it as a beneficial learning and professional development opportunity. Problem solve, workshop strategies, and connect with others who are working to encourage arts and culture on campus, helping to create a more interconnected arts community at UO.
WHEN: February 25th at 5:30pm
WHERE: EMU Gumwood Room (we’ll bring the snacks!)
Facilitated by Tomi Anderson, Cultural Services Director for the City of Eugene, Creative Conversations will provide opportunities for networking, and roundtable discussions about challenges and opportunities facing those working to cultivate arts and creative projects at UO and beyond. Possible topics may include arts marketing and outreach, engagement, student involvement/retention, media, event/exhibition planning, and fundraising.
We hope that you might come away with new approaches to problem solving in the arts, heightened awareness of activities and events on campus and in the community, possibilities for collaboration, and expanded connections with others who value arts and culture leadership. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org no later than February 19th if you plan to attend.
Creative Conversations is hosted by Emerging Leaders in the Arts Network (ELAN), a student-run professional development organization at the University of Oregon that cultivates leadership, dialogue, and engagement within the arts and culture community.
