Cross-Currents: Art + Leadership Powering Rural Economies

MARCH 18, 2015 - 1:00 PM to MARCH 20, 2015 - 3:00 PM ET

Rocky Mount, NC

Art + Leadership is bringing together rural agencies, artists, creative thinkers, philanthropists, placemakers, arts organizations, civic planners, entrepreneurs, initiators, and research and policy scholars from across America for three days of dialogue and learning to explore new directions for community well-being that recognize the central role of artist as leader and citizen visionary.

They will focus on:

successful models of the arts as connector, developer, facilitator, and economic generator

build a compelling case for more imaginative and leading edge rural revitalization strategies with art at the core of the enterprise

sharpen approaches that create opportunities for collaborative work across diverse and unexpected sectors.
