Join GWP members who have an interest in supporting our region’s cultural assets at GWP’s Arts Learning Network!
During our December 2017 meeting, we brainstormed topics for a learning agenda for the coming year and asked for suggestions on guiding intentions and goals for the group. The overarching goals put forth included:
To strategize and collaborate toward making the arts ever more vital.
To gain a comprehensive understanding of what regional arts funders are funding (and why) and identify potential gaps.
To provide a forum for talking about shared grantee relationships.
To identify opportunities to leverage one another.
To build relationships in this field and with each other.
In effort to meet some of these identified goals, during our upcoming session we will engage in a round-table sharing discussion. We’ll invite everyone to share information about your organization’s arts funding (your program(s), who is eligible, deadlines, priorities, types of support, strengths, challenges, etc.). We will also share the results from the brainstorming exercise around potential topics for this group to explore and do some prioritizing and narrowing to arrive at a learning agenda for the year.
This will be a brown bag meeting, so please feel free to bring a lunch. Drinks and desserts will be provided.
Mark your calendars:
The Arts Network will continue to gather quarterly after this meeting, so please mark your calendars:
