2013-2014 Speaking of the Arts

The Springfield Regional Arts Council (SRAC) is proud to release the 2013-2014 season of Speaking of the Arts, a professional development series for artists and arts organizations hosted at The Creamery Arts Center. Area experts will lecture on trends, best practices, and resources to enable our arts community to continue to thrive and enhance overall economic and cultural development.

Each workshop features a highly-trained speaker who will deliver a 60-minute presentation followed by 30 minutes of questions and interaction with the audience. Admission is free to SRAC members or $10 per workshop to non-members. Non-members are invited to join the SRAC for only $25. Registration is encouraged but not required by contacting Info@SpringfieldArts.org or 417-862-2787(ARTS). All workshops will be held in the Thomas W. Finnie Board Room.

Speaking of the Arts is made possible through the support of the Missouri Arts Council.
