National Arts and Humanities Month (NAHM) is a great way to dramatically increase the visibility of arts and culture in your community by leveraging Americans for the Arts’ NAHM programming. Creative Conversations, an Americans for the Arts program annually championed and provided with a theme every year by the Emerging Leaders Advisory Council during NAHM, is one easy and flexible way to amplify arts and culture, and create and strengthen connections within - and outside - of your arts community. In this session, you will learn how to host a Creative Conversation and how to integrate it into a complex NAHM campaign connected with Americans for the Arts channels. You will leave with your own draft of a NAHM campaign for your community. Workshop leaders will also briefly share their own experiences of successfully using Creative Conversations as a centerpiece of their NAHM programming.
