Engage.Next 7.0: Creating Authentic Partnerships for Community Engagement

Designed for staff and boards of arts organizations of all sizes as well as individual artists and arts advocates. The 7th Annual Engage.Next Conference will take a deep dive into creating partnerships.

Featuring: Lauren Benetua and Mateo Mosey, Community Catalysts with OF/BY/FOR ALL, will lead engaging discussions and an interactive workshop to guide participants in exploring partnership opportunities that foster deeper community engagement and support artists and arts organizations to become more of, by, and for their communities.

Hear from three local organizations participating in the international OF/BY/FOR ALL Change Network.

  • Santa Cruz County Park Friends
  • San Mateo County Library
  • San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles

That’s Not All! The conference will include a “speed dating” session, giving participants an opportunity to explore mutual affinities that may spark the beginnings of fruitful collaboration.

Cost: (All ticket prices include lunch.)

$35: Board and Staff of Arts Organizations, $25 each if you register two or more from one organization. $15: Individual Artists
