Key Take-Aways: Americans for the Arts Public Art Marketing & Community Engagement Webinar Series

In Fall 2014, I was invited to lead a webinar for the Americans for the Arts Public Art Network (PAN) Public Art Marketing & Community Engagement Digital Classroom series. Part of PAN’s ongoing online leadership development program for public art professionals, this 4-part webinar series focused on how to communicate to different groups of people why we need public art, and how to make public art as visible and impactful as possible—in both physical spaces and online.
 
The four lectures were organized by sub-topics: “Introduction to Marketing and Community Engagement” (September), “Promoting the value of your public art collection” (October), digital and online strategies (my session, in November), and education (December). See a full summary of all topics and speakers here. Each hour-long slide presentation led by one or more public art experts was coupled with a recap conference call session for participants.

On Thursday night, they were followed by images of displaced migrants in a Tunisian refugee camp.

Participation in Arts and Culture: The Importance of Community Venues

"Many arts organizations are discover- ing that where people choose to attend arts and cultural events can be crucial to developing effective strate- gies for reaching broader and more diverse audiences. New research on the Wallace -Reader’s Digest Funds’ Community Partnerships for Cultural Participation (CPCP) initiative finds that more people attend arts and cultural events in community venues – such as open air spaces, schools, and places of worship – than in conven- tional arts venues, such as concert halls, theaters, museums, and art gal- leries. Although audiences for events held in both types of venues overlap, about one-fourth of the people who participate in arts and culture do so only in community venues. These findings confirm the wisdom of one strategy employed by many arts organizations: presenting arts and cultural activities in places normally used for other purposes.

The findings also have deep relevance for policy- makers and funders, as well as those who are interested in cultural planning or facilities development, or are other- wise engaged in creating opportunities for participation in the arts." [Introduction, p. 2]

Universal Design Thinking

Having lost his ability to walk at age 5, and the ability to breathe solely on his own later in life, Dr. Victor Pineda has grown to become the consummate multi-hyphenate: scholar, professor, activist, filmmaker, international guest speaker, social design thinker, and White House appointee under President Obama. His day job affords him the ability to travel the world, working with governments, businesses, and locals on inclusion initiatives for persons with disabilities. His passions afford him a creative twist on everything he does, from adapting and creating new technologies, to working with the likes of Microsoft and the UN. On Innovation Crush, Victor dishes on several principles of innovation from universal design thinking, to the power of simplification, to policy change. More at worldenabled.org.
