The Public Policy Square Dance

Designed by Tom Schorgl, president and CEO, Community Partnership for Arts and Culture; presented by Tom Schorgl; Kinshasha Holman Conwill, arts, museum and management consultant; and Wayne Lawson, Ph.D., executive director, Ohio Arts Council.

The square dance is an apt metaphor to describe the many complex steps and actions leading to good arts public policy. Panelists discussed the strategies and tactics used to develop arts public policy from statewide (Ohio), municipal (New York City) and regional (Northeast Ohio) perspectives. Participants learned about the do-si-do and do-si-don'ts of public policy.
