A collection of Chicago-based artists and arts administrators – including representatives from Arts Alliance Illinois, Chicago Danztheatre Ensemble, Chicago Park District, Giordano Dance, Think!Art, Fulton Street Collective, Illinois Artisans Program and more – have partnered with 2013. This Creative Conversation (program of Americans for the Arts), titled “Meet your Maker” is envisioned as an opportunity for arts administrators. Creative types, at any stage in their professional career, are encouraged to join us for an evening of exploration among arts-passionate people.
Chicago Artists Month to host a Creative Conversation in Chicago on Thursday, October 10, local arts leaders to interact and meet face-to-face – bridging the divide between artists and “Meet your Maker” is produced in the spirit of relationship and community building in the arts. Rather than a panel discussion or facilitated conversation about a particular topic, attendees ‘come-as-they-are’. This smorgasbord of backgrounds, experiences and knowledge will provide a framework for interdisciplinary networking. Attendees are encouraged to break away from the comfort of the known and enter an unfamiliar space. Through informal roundtable discussion “Meet your Maker” aims to foster new relationships and introduce arts professional to resources they may never have known existed!
