Cincy Emerging Arts Leaders

Creative Conversation:
Arts Education—Beyond the Warm and Fuzzy
Wednesday, October 24, 2012, 4:00-5:30 PM
Aronoff Center’s Center Stage Room

Join the Cincy Emerging Arts Leaders in a Creative Conversation discussing the issue of Arts Education – Beyond the Warm and Fuzzy. This panel discussion brings together a variety of local arts supporters to dig deep into the question “Why is arts education essential to you, your organization, your business, and your community?” as well as further discussion into how professionals in Cincinnati can make a difference in arts education in our communities. Questions from participants will also be addressed by the panel.

The 2012 Creative Conversation panel includes:

Joe Link: Executive Director, Marjorie Book Continuing Education, and Adjunct Faculty, Xavier University – Moderator
Mark Davis: District Manager, Barnes & Noble Booksellers
Dr. Nancy Elder: Associate Professor, Director of Research, Department of Family and Community Medicine, University of Cincinnati
Katie Hofmann: Race to the Top Lead Teacher and TIF Coordinator, Cincinnati Public Schools
Jim Huizenga: Senior Program Officer, The Greater Cincinnati Foundation

Every October, in honor of National Arts & Humanities Month, Americans for the Arts partners with arts and community leaders from across the country to host Creative Conversations. Last year, more than 1,800 individuals participated in 52 locally hosted Creative Conversations throughout the country. Those leaders continue to be engaged at the national level.

The event is free and open to the public. However, preregistration is strongly encouraged. Register through Americans for the Arts.


About OAAE

Since our founding in 1974, by Dr. Dick Shoup and Jerry Tollifson, our mission has always been to ensure the arts are an integral part of the education of every Ohioan. Working at the local, state, and federal levels through the efforts of a highly qualified and elected Board of Directors, our members, and a professional staff we have four primary areas of focus: building collaborations, professional development, advocacy, and capacity building. The OAAE is funded in part for its day-to-day operation by the Ohio Arts Council. This support makes it possible for the OAAE to operate its office in Columbus and to work statewide to ensure the arts are an integral part of the education of every Ohioan. Support for arts education projects comes from the Ohio Arts Council, Ohio Music Education Association, Ohio Art Education Association, Ohio Educational Theatre Association, VSA Ohio, and OhioDance. The Community Arts Education programs of Central Ohio are financially assisted by the Franklin County Board of Commissioners and the Greater Columbus Arts Council. We gratefully acknowledge and appreciate the financial support received from each of these outstanding agencies and organizations.
