Americans for the Arts Logo

Americans for the Arts has announced a call for session proposals for its 2007 annual convention, Risk & Reward: Balancing Acts in Arts and Community, in Las Vegas, NV, June 1-3, 2007. Animating Democracy (www.artsusa.org/animatingdemocracy/) is requesting proposals for a track of civic engagement sessions, which will explore how the arts offer fresh sparks, welcoming invitations, needed spaces, and new forms of civic participation. From volunteering to voting, from community building to community healing, from issue awareness to social action—the arts can facilitate participation in community and political life and, by doing so, help people express their citizenship. What are best practices for artists, arts organizations, and arts councils working in the civic realm? How can we focus our civic intent for maximum civic impact? Americans for the Arts seeks session proposals that take chances with topics, perspectives, and formats. The submission deadline is December 1, 2006. For more details on how to submit, visit the convention homepage at www.AmericansForTheArts.org/convention.
