Emerging Arts Leaders: Philadelphia is pleased to announce Creative Conversation 2016, a one-day symposium gathering arts leaders from the Greater Philadelphia region. The event, featuring a keynote speech from PECO’s Tiffany Tavarez, will take place on Saturday, October 1, 10 am, at the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (100 N. 20th St., fifth floor).

This year’s Creative Conversation follows last year’s successful “What’s Next?” event by breaking open the traditional conference format to engage participants in a daylong dialogue about the myriad ways that the arts shape our region, and how we as arts leaders can promote and support the arts in and around Philadelphia. After a morning keynote speech from Tiffany Tavarez, corporate contributions manager at PECO, attendees will divide into fast-paced facilitated discussions with local arts leaders on the ways that the arts intersect with fields and topics ranging from government, policy and community to education, entrepreneurship and social justice.
