We brought our Lab Coat and Microscopes and NO – we did not grow our own algae! However, we did call this Arts "LAB" for a reason. Attendees participated in a creative conversation about innovations in capacity building for arts organizations (making the back office bones of the organizations even stronger so that the product/service becomes even better.) As with any science lab, we investigated three themes – messaging, resourcing, and engaging -- in the context of attendees’ work, both challenges and hopes. And many attendees came as part of a team of arts professionals and volunteers from their organization:
Folks came with an open mind and were ready to share, investigate and innovate (yes, as a verb!) with their colleagues from around the state (17 Counties and Baltimore City were all represented).
