This year’s keynote speaker is Stephanie Pruitt, Arts and Business Council of Greater Nashville Chair-Elect; a TEDx presenter on the subject of arts and business, and a member of the Board of Directors for TEDx. Pruitt holds a Master’s Degree in Fine Art, Creative Writing from Vanderbilt University is a published author, entrepreneur and founder of “No Starving Artist” where she coaches artists and creatives in the business of the arts.

”Development and the smart growth of a city is a process of envisioning, strategizing, crafting, and revising. Those are the same steps most artists work through every day. The process might look a little different, but artists and businesses and city planners can learn a lot from one another. The synergy of corporates and creatives can be a win-win-win. The ultimate winners are the community as a whole.”

Her keynote discusses the parallels between businesses and creatives and will share examples from her community in Nashville successful models that foster a more vibrant cultural, economic, and diverse community. She understands the pressures of attracting and retaining workforce, particularly millennials and generation Z young professionals. We are lucky have this speaker here in Dubuque to share her successful methods of aligning arts and business strategies to support overall economic vitality and growth.
