Cedar Valley Arts Summit 2.0

September 13, 2018 @ 4:00 am - 2:00 pm CDT

$18 – $20

Last year, you gave us a wish list on how we can all work to elevate the arts in the Cedar Valley. Join us for the Cedar Valley Arts Summit 2.0 – we’d love to share how we are going to make those ideas happen, and also provide an opportunity for you to be involved and shape the arts in our community.

The day will feature presentations by some of Iowa and the Midwest’s most creative minds, and leaders who are transforming communities through the arts. Keynote speaker, Dana M. Knapp of ArtsKC, will join us to share how her organization continues to build an arts-focused community in Kansas City. Come and network with artists, arts organizers and community leaders, as well.

Presented by the Cedar Falls Tourism & Visitors Bureau, Community Foundation of Northeast Iowa, Gallagher Bluedorn Performing Arts Center, Hawkeye Community College, Hearst Center for the Arts, UNI Art Department, UNI College of Humanities, Arts & Sciences, Waterloo Center for the Arts, Waterloo Community Playhouse/Black Hawk Children’s Theatre, & Waterloo Tourism & Visitors Bureau.
