|Community Arts Development Program|
The Community Arts Development Program (CAD) supports local arts agencies, presenting and community based organizations with assistance and training for all phases of organizational development - from the inception of a community program to developing organizational skills through long-range planning, board development and cultural assessment.
What is it that makes a community livable and vibrant? An understanding that place matters! Five years ago, the Arts @ the Heart Convening was created to support Nevada's cultural leadership to champion a vision that invests in people and the places they live. At the 2013 Arts @ the Heart Convening (A@H), we'll consider the attributes of vibrant communities, the role of artists as civic animators, and local renewal and growth through community engagement.
Join your colleagues in Reno at the 2013 A@H, and:
