Friday, June 15, 4:30 pm - 5:10 pm

Strong partnerships between the LAA and non-arts agencies are crucial to the health of your community. This case study explores Flagstaff Arts Council's project "Fires of Change," in which they partnered with science agencies, tribal governments, universities and health care agencies to explore the issue of wildfires in the American West.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand how to partner with non-arts groups in your community to address crucial or controversial issues through the arts.
  2. Explore the skills needed by LAA administrators, the artists involved, and the non-arts partners for successful cross-sector partnership.
  3. Discuss how to identify strong threads of community concern and develop methods of evaluating your impact.
