Event Details

The Alabama Alliance for Arts Education and Birmingham Children’s Theatre (BCT) will host Kennedy Center President Michael Kaiser on Friday, January 22 from 9:00-11:30 am as part of the nationwide tour, Arts in Crisis: A Kennedy Center Initiative. The event will be held in BCT’s Mainstage Theater in the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex in downtown Birmingham, AL. 

The Arts in Crisis Initiative is a response to the emergency facing arts organizations throughout the United States. The current economic climate has reduced earned and contributed income, decimated endowments, and has left some organizations struggling for survival. Companies of all sizes, localities, and performing arts disciplines have been affected. 

The program on January 22 will feature Alabama State Council on the Arts Executive Director Al Head and Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham President Kate Nielsen in an informal community conversation with Kennedy Center President Michael Kaiser. Mr. Kaiser will speak on the areas of fundraising, building more effective Boards of Trustees, budgeting, marketing, technology, and other areas pertinent to maintaining a vital performing arts organization during a troubled economy. 

The free event is open to the public, but is especially pertinent Alabama’s arts leaders, board members, executive directors, arts staff, arts patrons, legislators, community/state leaders, and grantmaking/funding/philanthropy officials or personnel.  For information about the event, please contact the Alabama Alliance for Arts Education at aaae@bellsouth.net or jaredkelley@bellsouth.net.
