I had the great honor of being a respondent on the plenary closing panel “Emerging Voices: Directions for the Field” at the Society for Arts Entrepreneurship Education (SAEE) Second Annual Conference on October 16-17. It was hosted by The Lawrence and Isabel Barnett Center for Integrated Arts and Enterprise at The Ohio State University.
The panelists were asked to write questions for the audience; after an audience member made a statement, the panelist responsible for writing the question was asked to respond. My questions revolved around the need for research on active arts entrepreneurs and the types of jobs necessary in the emerging field to facilitate that type of research activity. This was my second year on the “Emerging Voices” panel. I got strong feedback from several listeners who responded to my comments. I look forward to attending the conference next year!
