Event Description

The Arts Council's bi-annual summit is an opportunity for individuals to come together, learn from one another, and empower the state's creative sector. The summit offers professional development sessions for artists and arts advocates, administrators, and educators, and will highlight many of Wyoming's talented visual, performing, and literary artists.

Mary Anne Carter, chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), and Pam Breaux, president and CEO of the National Assembly of State Arts Agencies (NASAA) will be keynote speakers. A variety of interdisciplinary and discipline-specific workshops, sessions, and presentations will be offered. Educators will be able to earn up to 1 PTSB credit. In addition to formal sessions, the summit will also feature music showcases, receptions, and networking opportunities.
