Change is good. New is good. Being smart about it is good. Let's learn about 3 new shows and what their organizers are doing with them to make them successful.
We talk about why they hosting the show, how, fund raising, their connections to their community, rounding up sponsors, their hopes for the event and what they are learning along the way.
The guests are:
Patty Swords - the Texas Gulfcoast Art Festival, sponsored by the Center for the Arts & Sciences in Clute, TX, May 16 & 17
Celane Roden - Arts in the Middle, sponsored by The Virginia Commission for the Arts, Middlesex County and the Town of Urbanna in Urbanna, VA, May 30 & 31
Brett Johnson - the Workhouse Fall Arts Festival, sponsored by the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton, VA, September 26 & 27
This is a nuts and bolts show that should be helpful to show organizers and artists alike.
