'Arts in Crisis' at Clinton Center

Posted By on Wed, Jun 30, 2010 at 11:06 AM



If you run a non-profit arts agency and want to get some ideas about how to stay afloat — or just talk to other arts agency people — head to the Clinton Center a week from today, on July 8, for an hour and a half symposium with the president of the Kennedy Center.

Michael M. Kaiser, who created the Kennedy Center Arts Management Institute, is on a 50-state tour, "Arts in Crisis: A Kennedy Center Initiave," to assist non-profits in budgeting, marketing and other organizational needs. Arkansas Rep artistic director Bob Hupp will moderate.

The free symposium is from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.; register online or call 501-748-0425.
