How do local arts communities organize?

In a few weeks, the Houston Arts Alliance (HAA) is setting out to answer that question, or at least to see how Houston stacks up to other arts communities. HAA President/CEO Jonathon Glus will moderate a panel of national folks who hold similar positions in their communities:

  • Danielle Brazell General Manager, City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs
  • Michael Killoren, Local Arts Agencies & Challenge America Director, National Endowment for the Arts
  • Matthew J. Nielson, Deputy Commissioner, City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events-Cultural Planning and Operations Division
  • Jodi Ulich, Director of Convention & Cultural Services, City of Sacramento

HAA promises “an in-depth conversation on how other American cities organize themselves through the arts, the form and function of their LAA models [Local Arts Agencies], and trends across the country.”

“A National Conversation: How Local Arts Communities Organize” will take place on Tuesday, July 14, at 2:30pm at the Founders Club, The Hobby Center for the Performing Arts. There will be a reception afterwards from 4-5pm. NOTE: This event was originally planned for this week, but has been rescheduled to the new date due to a calendar conflict.
