We are thrilled to announce that the Montana Arts Council is offering their Strategic Investment Grants to provide matching funds to professional artists, arts organizations, and teachers in Montana to attend the 2014 Alliance of Artists Communities’ Conference in Charleston SC, October 20-23.
The Alliance of Artists Communities’ annual conference brings together artist residency directors and arts leaders from across the country to explore support for artists in the creation of new work and artist-centered community development. Sessions range from nuts-and-bolts management workshops to panels addressing trends in philanthropy, art-making, and cultural policy. This year’s event features keynotes by Reggie Wilson and Indira Johnson, tours of Charleston’s most dynamic arts centers, and the chance to connect with an international group of arts leaders around supporting artists!
