University of Houston Center for Arts Leadership hosts Leadership in the Arts Summit: "What does it take to be a 21st century arts community?"


Changes in technology, shifts in funding structures, Houston's new demographics and increasing competition for audiences are redefining the rules for artists and arts organizations. Beyond just surviving this moment, how can the arts lay the foundation for future success? The Leadership in the Arts Summit invites artists, arts administrators, curators, students, faculty, funders, philanthropists, community members and potential partners to come together for a collective exercise in forward thinking about the Houston arts ecology.

Featuring speakers who have reshaped the national arts funding trends, the Leadership in the Arts Summit asks, "What does it take to be a 21st century arts community?" Through panels and open discussion, the summit gives the arts a chance to discuss the current state of the arts in Houston and where we go from here.

The event will be held in UH's Athletics and Alumni Center, Entrance 15 off Cullen Boulevard.
