Key Note address from Vancouver Arts Summit

I attended the Vancouver Arts Summit last week (June 25 and 26) hosted by the Vancouver Alliance for Arts and Culture and 2010 Legacies Now. The keynote speaker for the event was Diane Ragsdale, associate program officer for the Andrew W. Mellon foundation.

Her address was titled "Surviving the Culture Change" Her ideas from the speech became central themes that manifested themselves over the two day summit, and I highly recommend everyone to have a look through it. In her brief she exams some reasons for the cultural shifts taking place with respect to audiences, and how many traditional arts groups are victims of seeing what they look for, or "bending the map" and becoming lost when traditional methodologies fail to work as our demographics and audiences change around us.

You can download the text of the address here from the Arts Alliance website.

Thanks for the post.

Just to clarify, the Vancouver Arts Summit was presented and produced by 2010 Legacies Now, Arts in partnership with the Alliance for Arts and Culture.

VANOC was not involved in this in any way.
Glad you enjoyed it!
