Arts and Cultural Management (MacEwan University) invites you and your guest to attend the final lecture in our series which will feature Janice Price, President of The Banff Centre – The Changing Landscape of Arts Advocacy.

A critical part of any cultural organization’s evolution is underpinned by strong and relevant advocacy. More than simply public demonstrations or government lobbying, arts sector advocacy is evolving and has the potential to change the dialogue about what the arts mean to today’s cultural and economic landscape. In this talk Janice Price, President of The Banff Centre, will discuss the opportunities and trends that will allow arts leaders to engage in a meaningful dialogue with a wide range of stakeholders through advocacy efforts, and how to measure effectiveness of advocacy efforts.

Environmental challenges today are as vast as the planet itself, but the most encouraging actions come in small steps – they start with you. Your unique ideas, creative passions, personal reflections and cherished experiences in the outdoors can become tools to create awareness and help solve challenges facing the natural world that is our home.

If you have a passion for nature, a creative idea to solve an environmental issue or a message about the environment you wish to share through the creative arts, we invite you to submit a proposal to present at the 2015 Get to Know International Unconference. This will be your moment to take the stage and present a unique piece of environmental statement art or environmental idea. Whether you sculpt, paint large-scale murals, sing and strum, dance, write, or produce animated shorts, this is a stage for art in all its forms. We invite you to seize this unique opportunity to grab the attention of a high-profile audience of influential leaders, industry professionals and established artists across Canada and the United States.
