It's time to Inter:Connect with fellow artists.

This is great news for artists of every stripe-- the State Arts Council's biennial conference will be held  in Fairbanks September 6 - 8, 2018.

For ten years, I had the honor of being a member of the Alaska State Council on the Arts literature review panel and worked closely with the council on many projects. I was most proud of the Initiative grant I received with fellow writer, Jean Anderson, to publish INROADS, an anthology of Alaska's award winning writers, and I can't speak highly enough of the work the State Arts Council and the Fairbanks Arts Association do to promote the arts across the state.

There's little more important for any artist and arts organization-- whether you're in writing or music or dance, visual or performing arts-- than staying in touch and networking with your community. Don't miss out on this great opportunity.

From their website:

Join Alaska State Council on the Arts for this biennial conference open to all – including artists, arts organizations, educators, individuals, businesses, and leaders focused on vitality and resiliency, contributing to Alaska’s growing creative industries through the arts.

This year’s conference explores how arts, culture and creativity activate networks and communities to move toward an innovative and inspired future for Alaska.  The role that each of our individual voices play in this challenge is an important element of the conference.
