Keynote Presentation – The Most Important Piece of Art is YOU

As we look toward the future growth of the Arizona Presenter’s Alliance members, it is important to recognize the most important piece of this future growth, YOU.  Without you, the leaders of this magnificent world of art events and productions, the future does not exist.  This presentation will ultimately inspire, reignite, and remind you of the impact your leadership has on your teams and communities.  As the world of art events and experiences reaches for new heights, the most important piece of art is YOU.

Session Presentation – Community By Design

Community can be defined as the experience of connection and membership between individuals within a group. Presenting professionals, more than most other professions, create community EVERY DAY through the experiences they design. By participants engaging in this session, they will have the opportunity to gain knowledge on the founding principles of community, increase their knowledge on core research concepts related to community, discuss barriers to creating community, discuss inclusive community building practices, and ultimately develop their own strategies to build community.
