Change is not new for the public art field; each program adapts to its community and with each project comes a unique story. As the interest in how public art can impact a society grows, so does the need for healthy partnerships with fellow civic-focused organizations, community stakeholders, and project partners. Explore how you can adopt successful practices and partnerships to impact your community and create great projects. Walk away from your preconference experience with an understanding of the opportunities and challenges facing public art today, as well as the tools and knowledge that strengthen and grow your work in your community.

Expanding the Ecosystem begins at 9:00 a.m. on Thursday, June 15 and goes through 11:00 a.m. on Friday, June 16. This preconference will primarily take place at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square, the Convention headquarters, with special public art tours occurring throughout San Francisco.
