Saturday Plenary and Leadership Awards

Saturday, June 15, 10:15 am - 12:15 pm
Converging Joy and Industry through the Art

Enjoy a Saturday keynote that converges two main ideas in one amazing woman: Chandrika Tandon. Tandon is a business leader and Grammy-nominated artist whose personal journey and business acumen have continued to center creativity even as she has risen to greater and greater success. She also embodies a relentless joy, and reminds us how arts and culture can continue to drive optimism. In addition to Tandon's inspiration, celebrate the 2019 Leadership Award winners with us from the main stage!

Americans for the Arts thanks Ovation for its generous support of the Saturday Plenary and Leadership Awards session.
