Support for Individual Artists Preconference

Light Box at Goldman Warehouse
404 NW 26 Street
Miami, FL

Join your colleagues at the Light Box at Goldman Warehouse in the heart of Miami's Wynwood Art District for a series of conversations exploring direct support of artists. Focusing on grant and non-grant support, these lively discussions will address community engagement, artist-centric evaluation, professional development services, and supporting under-served artists and emerging fields.

Participants will have opportunities to enter into existing conversations or to create their own, all the while collaborating with peers to develop new strategies and support tools. A national panel of artists moderated by Maria Rosario Jackson of The Kresge Foundation will open and close the day, offering both a grantee viewpoint and feedback on the day's proceedings.
