Arts & Education at the 2007 GIA Conference in Taos

Reports from the 2007 GIA & GFE Conference Arts and Education Weekend in Santa Fe

Published in: 2007 Conference Proceedings


In October 2007, GIA and Grantmakers for Education (GFE) scheduled our respective annual conferences consecutively so that we could plan a collaborative program on arts and education. Over 90 funders took part in the Weekend, either extending their stay after the GFE conference, or arriving early before the GIA conference. A small group of members attended all three conferences and we asked a few of them to write about their experience.
