OREGON ARTS SUMMIT 2010:
The Art of Adaptation: New Tools, New Ideas & Tested Practices
Thursday, October 7, 2010; Tiger Woods Center, Nike World Headquarters
State's Arts Leaders Gather to Address Innovations and Sustainability
The Oregon Arts Commission will present the Oregon Arts Summit 2010: The Art of Adaptation: New Tools, New Ideas and Tested Practices on Thursday, October 10, 2010, 9 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., at the Tiger Woods Center on the Nike Campus in Beaverton.
The 2009 Oregon Arts Summit attracted a sold-out audience of 300+ arts and civic leaders. To register or to learn more, visit http://www.Regonline.com/OregonArtsSummit<http://www.regonline.com/OregonArtsSummit>.
The convening offers cutting edge presentations by national leaders and explores innovative solutions that have been developed and piloted by arts organizations across our state. The Summit takes place during Oregon Days of Culture 2010, organized by the Oregon Cultural Trust to raise awareness of the value of culture across the state.
"The arts play a central role in Oregon's creative economy," said Christine D'Arcy, Executive Director of the Arts Commission. "The Commission launched the Sustaining Oregon's Arts initiative so non-profit arts groups can share and learn from one another and from successful innovations across the country. As arts organizations confront new challenges and opportunities, their ability to rapidly and effectively adapt is an essential skill."
Attendees will have a variety of opportunities to engage with one another and with presenters in small group dialogue. Information technology will generate additional interchange between attendees and will extend the impact of the convening's offerings post-Summit.
A fascinating array of national and local thought leaders will dialogue with one another and with attendees, including:
Michael Horn of the Innosight Institute, coauthor of Disrupting Class: How Disruptive Innovation Will Change the Way the World Learns (named by BusinessWeek as one of the 10 best innovation & design books of 2008).
Howard Gardner, author of 25 books translated into 28 languages and best know for his theory of multiple intelligences.
Richard Evans, president of EmcArts, will share lessons learned from EmcArts' Innovation Lab.
A complete list of presenters is included below.
Further information on the Oregon Arts Summit and registration instructions are available at http://www.Regonline.com/OregonArtsSummit<http://www.regonline.com/OregonArtsSummit>.
MICHAEL HORN will keynote the Summit, starting the day with new models that connect other industries and other systems to the arts. Horn is the co-founder and executive director of Education of Innosight Institute, a nonprofit think tank focused on education and innovation. He is the coauthor of Disrupting Class: How Disruptive Innovation Will Change the Way the World Learns (McGraw-Hill: June 2008). BusinessWeek named the book one of the 10 Best Innovation & Design Books of 2008, Strategy + Business awarded it the best human capital book of 2008, Newsweek named it as the 14th book on its list of "Fifty Books for Our Times," and the National Chamber Foundation named it first among its 10 "Books that Drive the Debate 2009."
HOWARD GARDNER will join Michael Horn to explore the combination of cognitive skills and abilities a team needs to effectively feed and guide innovation and adaptation. Author of 25 books translated into 28 languages, and several hundred articles, Gardner is best known in educational circles for his theory of multiple intelligences, a critique of the notion that there exists but a single human intelligence that can be adequately assessed by standard psychometric instruments.
RICHARDS EVANS, President of EmcArts, will share lessons learned and best practices from EmcArts<http://www.emcarts.org/>' Innovation Lab, an initiative that works with performing arts organizations to help them design and launch innovative strategies that address major opportunities and challenges. Evans' recent speaking engagements have included "Building Our Future Together: Innovative Responses to Turbulent Times," the keynote address at the 2009 Midwest Arts Conference; "Innovation and Program Strategy," a talk at the Fall 2008 Grantmakers in the Arts (GIA) Conference; and "The Impact of the Economy on the Field of Presenting," a national conference-call panel presented by the Association of Performing Arts Presenters (APAP).
MICHAEL DAIGNEAULT of BoardSource will take a close look at the critical partnership between an organization's board of directors and its chief executive, when the goal is to build capacity for ongoing innovation and adaptation. Daigneault is a senior governance consultant for BoardSource, an experienced consultant and trainer. He is frequently asked to counsel nonprofit boards concerning vital governance challenges, and has particular experience working with nonprofit boards and chief executives on leadership, ethics, and strategic issues. Based in the Washington, DC area, Michael has worked with Independent Sector, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the Association of International Educators (NAFSA), the College of American Pathologists, the International Baccalaureate, NISH, the LAM Foundation, and many others.
JANET BROWN, Grantmakers in the Arts' (GIA) Executive Director, will further explore EmcArts' lessons learned in an informal one-on-one with Richard Evans. Brown is a nationally known consultant, speaker and teacher and an adjunct faculty member at Goucher College, Baltimore, MD. Prior to GIA, she was chair of the Performing and Visual Arts at Augustana College in Sioux Falls, SD and Executive Director of South Dakotans for the Arts and the SD Alliance for Arts Education.
BARRY JOHNSON will convene a journalists' salon, including ANNE FOCKE, writer, editor and freelance art consultant from Seattle and ABRAHAM HYATT, Portland-based writer, editor and journalism evangelist.
Led by MARTHA RICHARDS of the James F. and Marion L. Miller Foundation, ELAINE CALDER, Executive Director of the Oregon Symphony, and CARRIE HOOPS, Executive Director of the Nonprofit Association of Oregon will join a discussion of arts organizations' turn-arounds.
GEORGE THORN, founder of Arts Action Research, will curate a rapid-fire session of "Oregon Adaptations Worth Spreading", with short briefings from selected nonprofit arts leaders who are piloting effective new approaches.
GEORGE EVANO, Director of Communications for Oregon Bach Festival, will talk with MICHAEL KOSMALA, marketing/technology expert for The Canoe Group, about how and why 2010's festival gate receipts soared 18% over 2009's.
