Arts Impact Ohio 2018  
December 5 - 6, Columbus

At Arts And… through inspiring keynotes, plenary sessions, performances, workshops, one-on-one discussions, and networking with peers both old and new, this year’s Arts Impact Ohio conference will explore intersections of the arts, what we can learn from them, how they might be adapted or replicated, and what they can tell us about the value of the arts for our state.

Beyond Arts And…, workshop sessions will also address some of the most in-demand nuts-and-bolts topics facing artists, arts educators, and arts administrators, including:

  • Cultivating and retaining major donors
  • Navigating the fast-moving world of social media
  • Writing and organizational equity statement
  • Developing a valuable, high-impact artist residency
  • Crowdfunding and other innovative development techniques
  • Thriving and succeeding as a professional creative

…and more!
