2014-2015 Speaking of the Arts

Area experts will lecture on trends, best practices, and resources to help the community’s artists and arts organizations to continue to thrive. All events will be held at The Creamery Arts Center (with exception of the Self-Employment in the Arts Conference and Library Resources for Artists and Arts Organizations.)
