Sponsors:
Robert E. Gard Foundation
Goals:

From farms to cities, amateur and professional artists transform lives and inspire change in every aspect of American life. We celebrate, experiment, learn, and mourn through the creativity of music, visual art, dance, theatre, film, opera, video games, public art, graphic design, poetry and other ways that American’s express their culture and the human condition. This Symposium celebrates the 50th anniversary of “The Arts in the Small Community: A National Plan” by Robert Gard. The vision and spirit of this publication and its author are reflected in the community and neighborhood arts movements of all peoples. Arts leaders from rural and small communities, urban neighborhoods, Native tribes and immigrant populations will come together to acknowledge the past, understand the present and envision a future where the power of human expression through art defines and transforms our communities.
