(presented in collaboration with the UW-Madison Bolz Center for Arts Administration)
This two day event will allow participants to explore the processes, outcomes, and impacts of new venture creation in the arts through hands-on workshops, speakers, pitch sessions, and research presentations. The 4th Biennial Symposium features a multi-session interactive workshop on creativity led by Elizabeth Long-Lingo, as she guides participants through a process to take an idea from ideation to pitch.
The Symposium will be anchored by keynote speeches from Ruby Lerner, CEO of Creative Capital, and Steven J.
