Emerging Arts Professionals and the Oakland Museum of California (OMCA) present Reframing the Arts: Advocating for the Public Interest in Culture, a highly interactive workshop led by writer, speaker, social activist Arlene Goldbard exploring cultural policy issues from many different angles. Working in small teams, participants will explore different perspectives and build a composite picture of the way arts, culture and its value are currently understood. Participants will also be able to discover the values, stories, images, and metaphors that have the potential to effectively reframe this debate. It’s advocacy for the future and its starts with you. We hope you can join us.
This workshop is the culmination of Cultural Policy 101: A Blog Salon – April 11 through April 15 that leverages the volices of Oakland arts leaders to discuss how we can move from a failed strategy to one that captures the true power, scope, and promise of the public interest in culture.
