The Visual Arts Summit - Canada
I'm not one of the organizers, but I plan on attending. This sounds like it'll be a grand event!
The Visual Arts Summit
November 25-27, Ottawa, Ontario
Crowne Plaza Hotel
101 Lyon Street, Ottawa, Ontario
Canadian artists, collectors, gallery owners, arts writers, publishers, art historians, teachers, critics, curators, corporate leaders, arts service organizations, and public sector funders will gather for an unprecedented milestone in Canadian culture - the Visual Arts Summit.
The Visual Arts Summit will offer a first opportunity for the key players in the visual arts sector to interact directly and engage in a high level discussion about every aspect of Canadian art. Through a series of conversations, discussions and arts events, the Visual Arts Summit will start building a consensus and a strategy to broaden the appreciation of Canadian art - both domestically and internationally. Consensus will be constructed by examining the visual arts holistically through such issues as: creation and production, education and scholarship, collection and presentation, promotion and marketing, and community awareness and development. The Visual Arts Summit aims to draw out key issues for improving the situation of arts practice in order to emerge with a shared policy agenda for the visual arts. The Visual Arts Summit is structured to be a significant event in itself as well as a starting point for transformative change.
