Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
WHAT: National Endowment for the Arts invites Lake Eden Arts Festival’s Executive Director to present at the National Council of the Arts meeting in Washington D.C.
WHEN: TOMORROW - Friday, October 29th 2010
Jennifer Pickering, Executive Director of Lake Eden Arts Festival (LEAF), will present at the National Council of the Arts meeting in Washington D.C. tomorrow. From over 1,400 outdoor arts festival organizations, LEAF | Lake Eden Arts Festival was one of only two organizations selected to speak at this prestigious meeting of the National Endowment for the Arts’ (NEA) advisory body, which meets three times annually. The meeting will be webcasted live from 9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. on the NEA website.
The 171st meeting of the NEA’s advisory body will highlight the NEA’s latest report, Live from Your Neighborhood: A National Study of Outdoor Arts Festivals. The report examined 1,413 outdoor arts festivals in the country through surveys and case-studies. The study’s key findings indicate that outdoor arts festivals have diverse art forms and audiences, a commitment to quality programming, low or no-cost admission fees and integrate within their communities. The report also raises an important question for other arts organizations to ask: “What are festivals doing right and how can we replicate it?”
LEAF is a non-profit organization established to build community and enrich lives through the Arts – locally & globally – with festivals, events, mentoring, and educational programs.
Shouldn't we all be listening? I'll be tuned in -- lots to learn here -- how about you?
Does anyone here know anything about LEAF? This is a new organization to me.
