Vancouver Arts Summit Presented By Alliance for Arts & Culture & 2010 Legacies Now

Posted May 25, 2009 by kk

Since Vancouver was announced the host city for the 2010 Winter Olympics , many initiatives have sprung up around the local arts community to help foster strength and sufficient voice during the time leading up, during and after the Games.

One of this initiatives is called 2010 Legacies Now which promotes a strengthening lifeline to the affluent arts , literacy , sports/recreation and volunteerism in Vancouver for the upcoming 2010 event.

Projects like the 2010 Legacies Now have the chance to work with already existing organizations like the Alliance for Arts and Culture , which was created in 1986 in order to provide representation to artists of many different mediums with information regarding public policy on the arts and opportunities in networking and professional development.

The by-product of this kind of collaboration is the Vancouver Arts Summit, being held at the Vancouver Public Library on June 25-26, 2009. The Summit is titled 'Shifting Ground: New Realities, New Ideas, New Opportunities'.

The Alliance for Arts and Culture states that the object of the Summit is:

* to provide resources and information to effectively manage in the current economic climate
* to enhance the skills, knowledge and expertise of those working in the sector
* to provide networking opportunities
* to encourage increased communication, collaboration and cooperation with business, government and other non-profit organizations.

Very few details have been released about the program of the two days but what has been released is pretty awe-inspiring.

The first is that the keynote speaker is Diane Ragsdale who is currently a communications and planning consultant who has worked for many major arts festivals including Bumbershoot , WOMAD USA as well as Sundance and Seattle Film Festivals . She was also part of the selected few who were awarded entry to Stanford University's Executive Program for Nonprofit Leaders in their Graduate School of Business . She also just gave a talk to the Australian Arts Marketing Council titled 'Surviving the Cultural Change' so hopefully her address at the Summit will be equally inspiring.

The second is one of the panel/dialogue discussion that is being programed for one of the days will be titled 'New Media, New Tools, New Audiences' which will speak to the current change in the networks of media and how this interacts with artists and producers of content. Kris is a confirmed speaker at this panel as is Rebecca Bollwitt otherwise known as Miss604 .

The Summit should be really amazing event and resource for Vancouver in preparation for the Games. Limited release of tickets were issued this morning to a 125 lucky individuals. :)
