Rural Arts and Culture Summit
ACHF Arts Access
Artists and arts organizations build relationships with members of, or organizations that serve, groups that have traditionally been underserved by the arts or by the applicant organization.Anecdotal responses, contacts made, relationships built, ideas generated.
I wasn't sure what to expect, for this was my first summit. It was excellent, particularly the opportunities to meet others-makers, funders and sponsors (school people, library people, etc.). The food and location were great, the working staff (guides) were helpful and the speakers outstanding. The only thing I'd change is to allow more time for the vendors. There were workshops, etc. competing for everyone's attention and yet I would have enjoyed going back to look over their wares. Also, the mix of topics was good. I hope to continue to build relationships started at the summit.
