Creative Conversations – Lessons From Social Entrepreneurs: How to Add Value to Your Organization and Career
Los Angeles, CA—On Saturday, April 21, Emerging Arts Leaders/Los Angeles (EAL/LA) will host a day-long Creative Conversation conference, entitled “Lessons from Social Entrepreneurs: How to Add Value to Your Organization and Career” at the Plaza de la Raza (3540 N Mission Rd, Los Angeles, 90031). The day’s events will start at 10:15am and conclude at 3:30pm. Tickets are $20.
April’s Creative Conversation will allow for entrepreneurs to share insights with Emerging Leaders as to how to identify unmet needs in communities and organizations and shape their work to meet those needs. The day is designed to explore challenges the speakers have faced and the creative and logistical know-how they drew upon to face them. Speakers include keynote Terence McFarland, Chief Executive Office, LA Stage Alliance and panelists Edgar Arceneaux, Executive Director of the Watts Tower Project; Nonprofit Consultant Judy Tatum; Rebecca Ansert, Founder & Principal, Green Public Art Consultancy; and Molly Cleator, Owner/Founder, A Place to Create.
Established in 2004 by Americans for the Arts, Creative Conversations are local Emerging Arts Leaders gatherings across the country that intend to raise the profiles of the arts in the United States during National Arts and Humanities Month. Due to the tremendous interest in Creative Conversations and to meet the organization’s mission of providing professional development opportunities to its membership, EAL/LA has grown Creative Conversations to include two day- long events per year.
The April 2012 EAL/LA Creative Conversation encourages creators, performers, funders, and arts administrators from all fields to attend. The day-long event will include opportunities to network and to discuss the event’s topic in an open forum with the speakers.
