Performing Arts Facilities and the Culture Wars: Life on the Front Lines

MODERATOR
Duncan Webb



PANELISTS
Doug McLennan; Kelly Tweeddale; Rachel Moore




Performing arts facilities are being drawn into the culture wars as American society becomes increasingly politicized and polarized. Facility managers are having to deal with a range of difficult challenges, including open-carry laws, anti-vaxxers, artists sharing political views from the stage, first amendment rights and the basic question of whether arts facilities should be neutral sites welcoming all in the community or activist organizations pursuing justice and other progressive viewpoints for their communities.

Please join us for a lively panel discussion with facility managers and other experts as we dig into these questions and hear from the men and women having to navigate these difficult challenges on a daily basis.

The Wallace Foundation seeks to improve education and enrichment for disadvantaged children and foster the vitality of arts for everyone. The foundation has an unusual approach: funding efforts to test innovative ideas for solving important public problems, conducting research to find out what works and what doesn’t and to fill key knowledge gaps – and then communicating the results to help others. Wallace, which works nationally, has five major initiatives under way:
  • School leadership: Strengthening education leadership to improve student achievement.
  • Afterschool: Helping selected cities make good afterschool programs available to many more children.
  • Building audiences for the arts: Enabling arts organizations to bring the arts to a broader and more diverse group of people.
  • Arts education: Expanding arts learning opportunities for children and teens.
  • Summer and expanded learning: Better understanding the impact of high-quality summer learning programs on disadvantaged children, and enriching and expanding the school day in ways that benefit students.
