Finding Civility

Designed by Hal Cannon, board member, Fund for Folk Culture; Anne Focke, executive director, Grantmakers in the Arts; and Michael Moore, director of arts programs, The Wallace Foundation; discussion with Bill Ivey, director, Curb Center for Art, Enterprise, and Public Policy at Vanderbilt University; and Tony Kahn, radio journalist (WGBH, Boston)

This interactive session explored the cultural landscape in the US and provided a forum for examining what democracy means in this country today. Radio journalist Tony Kahn presented stories and personal observations drawn from people's daily lives. Bill Ivey joined Kahn for a discussion of how artistic expression, arts enjoyment, and arts discourse had gone beyond the traditional nonprofit definitions that have shaped the work of grantmakers, as well as the obstacles and opportunities presented by this broadened cultural landscape.
