Art Chat 2017 - Realizing Aspirations

The truth is, sometimes it just feels good to talk. Talk to our friends. And talk to people who understand the challenges we face every day. Through a series of structured small group conversations and arts performances over the course of the day, attendees will explore:

  1. What are your ASPIRATIONS for your community?
  2. What are the CHALLENGES you face in reaching these aspirations?
  3. What are the NEW CONDITIONS needed to reach your aspirations?

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Artists, creative professionals, arts administrators and cultural institutions -- anyone interested in building a more creative and vibrant community using the arts!

At the end of the day, we hope to be energized by shared experiences and discover fresh ideas for changing aspirations into reality. Along the way, attendees will be inspired by some of Nebraska's most dynamic musicians, storytellers and other performing artists. 

ART CHAT will be held at four locations across Nebraska. Spend a day with your peers to celebrate the good work you’re doing or get the support to navigate a difficult situation.

Because we really want to see you there, we are offering Travel Subsidies of $50 to $100 to those who must travel more than 75 miles one-way to get to one of the Art Chat locations. So don't let distance stand in your way. If you qualify, check the travel subsidy box when you register online.
