Partnership veterans dissected living and dying strategic partnerships in the arts and the role philanthropy plays in success and failure. Big, small; artistic, political; financial, social; youth-focused, discipline based; ego-centered, humanitarian; non-profit, for-profit, no profit; local, national, regional, global; private or public; long-term relationships and one-night stands. This session took a playful look at partnership pitfalls of the 20th century and promise in the 21st.
