ENGAGAGING BUSINESS ADVOCATES WEBINAR
Wednesday, April 23, 2014 – 3:00pm – 04:00pm
Event Description – http://www.americansforthearts.org/events/webinars/engaging-business-advocates?delta=0
Engaging your community’s business and philanthropic leaders as arts advocates and advisors is a goal many arts organizations aspire to but don’t
always accomplish. Learn by example with a case study from Dan Bowers, President of ArtsBuild in Chattanooga, who recently spearheaded the creation of a community-wide cultural plan with input from local artists and business leaders. Hear from the two community advocates–artist and Lyndhurst Foundation program officer, Karen “Rudy” Rudolph and ArtsBuild board member and Vice President of Global Programs at Unum, Cissy Williams–who each played a role in the plan’s development and are actively involved in its implementation today.
The second half of the webinar will bring us John Bryan, President of CultureWorks in Richmond, Virginia. CultureWorks was formed in 2009 through a recommendation by the Richmond Region Cultural Action Plan, a process that engaged leaders from the cultural and business worlds, as well as members of the community. In addition to its support of arts non-profits, CultureWorks collaborates with local businesses and other sectors to spur the economic development of the greater Richmond area.
These case studies will give you the building blocks to engage business and community leaders outside of the funding realm through practical (and successful) examples from local communities around the country.
Presented by: Dan Bowers, President, ArtsBuild; Karen “Rudy” Rudolph, Artist & Program Officer, Lyndhurst Foundation; Cissy Williams, Board Member, ArtsBuild & Vice President of Global Programs, Unum; John Bryan, President, CultureWorks.
