Gearing Up for Grantmakers
I’m thrilled to be an ‘official’ blogger for the Grantmakers in the Arts Conference, and particularly thrilled that there’s a special emphasis on the impact of capital investment and infrastructure on arts and culture organizations. I’ll admit I’m a business geek (I direct an MBA degree program in Arts Administration, after all), but capital keeps coming back as a vexing theme in need of productive focus by arts leaders and arts funders alike.
I’ll likely be harping on that theme throughout the event, and riffing off my blogging colleagues Arlene Goldbard and Barry Hessenius along the way. I hope conference participants and observers from afar take a moment to join the conversation through comments and blog posts of their own.
Off we go!
