A lot of energy and good ideas flow when you put arts organizations in the same room with cultural heritage buffs. Do you have an underutilized public space that could be transformed through arts and cultural programming? Are you interested in finding ways to draw new audiences to your cultural facility or historic property? Whether the context is churches doubling as performance venues, historic sites hosting art installations, or industrial spaces being repurposed for community use, this retreat promises an interesting and inspiring mix of ideas.
With a strain on town budgets, what help is there to ensure that these critical facilities are maintained and well-used in an evolving environment? At this retreat, we will look at some of the particular challenges and opportunities for libraries, nonprofit-owned, and public buildings.
