Ms. Schumacher will then provide an overview of their resource for artists, Creative Compass. The website hosts a comprehensive list of service organizations for artists, spaces, job openings, calls for artists and the Artist as an Entrepreneur Institute online. Lastly, as the organization moves into a new era of creating the conditions for artist and culture to thrive, Ms. Schumacher will provide an overview the organization’s new strategic imperatives.
