AFTA – 2018 National Arts Marketing Conference

November 9, 2018 - November 12, 2018

As arts marketers, we work to create a future that reflects organizational visions to better serve audiences and more deeply and equitably engage the community. But even as we focus on the needs of our organization and community, the world changes quicker and quicker—resources are limited and attentions spans short.  Yet, we still must be prepared to not only confront the challenges that come our way—but anticipate them and prepare for them.

Join us in Seattle as we explore three core themes:

You: What new skill(s) do I need to learn to be effective in my individual career?
Your World: What information does the field need to navigate the current environment?
Your Future: What is our collective vision for the future, and how do we reach it?

Title: 2280 Pasos Bajo un Cielo Nublado | Artist: Hernán Jourdan | Medium: Film

When I was asked to create a work of art exploring literacy, I wanted to create a dance but I had no dancers or a studio, so I chose to use my own body in the space I had, my yard. Fluent Nature is video of micro-choreography that explores what cannot be expressed with words, how nature has its own language, and how placing the human body in nature changes the story.

Title: What Is Me and What Is Not Me | Artist: Alex Chadwell | Medium: Music

My thinking on arts and literacy centers around the concept of literacies and artmaking as both sense-making and meaning-making processes that organically and inevitably overlap, intersect, and reciprocate. Compositionally, What is me and what is not me is a sound collage of sorts (there is no notation for the piece, and I'd be hard pressed to recreate it accurately) that abstractly and aurally represents the relationships between literacies and artmaking.

Title: A Curious Honeybee | Artist: Gideon Young | Medium: Film

Offering welcome through traditional and digital elements of literacy, A Curious Honeybee provides an experiential learning environment by activating visual, musical, natural, and emotional literacies.

Title: Tercera Llamada | Artist: Karilú Forshee | Medium: Audio

La Carpa Theatre is a project that I am currently directing in the Detroit Latinx community. The project aims to strengthen and uplift youth voices through devised theatre, in the style of the Mexican Carpas. This audio was created in the theatrical environment envisioned for our project. The ways in which literacies are re-defined are at the heart of La Carpa Theatre's mission.
