DAVID’S EPISCOPAL CHURCH – BETHELL HALLBassist, vocalist and composer EsperanzaSpalding is blessed with uncanny instrumental chops, a multilingual voice that ispart angel and part siren, and a naturalbeauty that borders on the hypnotic.The 26-year-old prodigy-turned-pro wasraised on what she calls “the other sideof the tracks” in a multilingual householdand neighborhood in Portland, Oregon.Growing up in a single-parent home amideconomically adverse circumstances, shelearned early lessons in the meaning ofperseverance and moral character fromthe role model whom she holds in thehighest regard to this day—her mother.At 15, Spalding auditioned on bass forBerklee College of Music and receiveda scholarship on the spot. Eleven yearslater, she earns raves from the mostdiscriminating jazz aficionados whileattracting a loyal fan base all over theglobe. President Obama invited her toperform at the White House twice, aswell as at his 2009 Nobel Peace Prizeceremony in Oslo, Norway.The New York Times writes, “Esperanza has got a lot:accomplished jazz improvisation, funk, scat singing,Brazilian vernacular rhythm and vocals in English,Portuguese and Spanish. At its center is a femalebassist, singer and bandleader, one whose talentis beyond question.”NASAA Assembly 201013

BRIEFINGSFriday, October 1510:30 A.M. - 11:30 A.M.Building a Shared Public Responsibility for the ArtsOMNI HOTEL-LONE STAR ROOMMany of us have spent years searching for the strongest possible message and the best case onwhich to build support for the arts. Yet the messages we have used have not always yielded thebroad sense of shared responsibility that we seek. To address this challenge, ArtsWave (formerlythe Fine Arts Fund) in Cincinnati embarked on a year-long initiative designed to develop an inclusive community dialogue leading to broadly shared public responsibility for arts and culture inthe region. A new report summarizes a year of work in the Cincinnati region and includes importantinsights for use in other communities and states. This is a landmark analysis utilizing framing science to develop a strategic communications approach for arts and culture. This session reviews theinitiative’s research findings and offers examples of how the community is successfully using theresulting messages with the media, opinion leaders and the public.Presenter:Moderator:MARGY WALLER, VICE PRESIDENT, ARTS & CULTURE PARTNERSHIP, ARTSWAVEJULIE HENAHAN, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, OHIO ARTS COUNCILPut Your ART into It: Economic Development Texas StyleOMNI HOTEL-CAPITAL BALLROOM AThe arts can be a cornerstone of prosperity, driving local economic development, creating a strongwork force and energizing commerce. How can state arts agencies help policy leaders appreciatethis power? How can states make a compelling—and credible—case to elected officials and economicdevelopers? The Texas Cultural Trust has been addressing these challenges through a strategicresearch and communications campaign. This briefing outlines how the Trust has documented theimportance of the arts in diverse rural and urban communities and has revealed the value of thearts to business and policy leaders. A hallmark of this work has been the involvement of policymakersin both research and communications. A team of representatives from the Trust and their researchand marketing partners share how they are working together to put the arts at the forefrontof economic development in Texas.Presenters:16AMY BARBEE, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, TEXAS CULTURAL TRUSTDAVE SHAW, PRESIDENT, RUSSELL/SHAWTRAVIS JAMES, VICE PRESIDENT, TEXAS PERSPECTIVES, INC.NASAA Assembly 2010

This session provides an overview of this initiative’s findings and outcomes to date, andshares tools and lessons learned for state arts agencies that want to catalyze greater arts participation.Presenter:TOM KAIDEN, PRESIDENT, GREATER PHILADELPHIA CULTURAL ALLIANCEFederal Resources for the Arts: Emerging OpportunitiesOMNI HOTEL-CONGRESS ROOMWhile the National Endowment for the Arts stands as the federal government’s principal source offunding dedicated to the arts in the United States, other federal agencies offer programs that supportthe arts in collaborative and creative ways.

Connecting the arts to a largerpublic policy agenda can create new resources for the arts. This session will review funding opportunities in federal programs and collaborations at the federal level that could assist artists and artsorganizations in your state.Presenter:THOMAS L. BIRCH, LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL, NASAAFinancial Fault LinesOMNI HOTEL-CAPITAL BALLROOM BHow has the recession affected the nonprofit sector? Have arts organizations fared worse than othernonprofits? What types of “pretty bad best practices” in the giving and getting of money contribute to thestruggle and demise of some groups? This session reviews how, in order to cope with financial uncertainty and adapt to a changing reality, arts organizations and their funders need to think about enterprise finance differently. Hear from the Nonprofit Finance Fund about how organizations across thecountry have fared over the last two years, based on the results of its annual survey.

They also may overlook the importance of cultural and ethnic diversity. To addressthese gaps, the Global Center for Cultural Entrepreneurship, with support from the W.K. KelloggFoundation, undertook an unusual examination of the dynamics of the cultural economy in New Mexico.The project combined standard economic models, anthropological research methods and documentaryfilmmaking to describe the full effects of cultural entrepreneurship on children and families as wellas the state’s economy.

Declining Arts Participation and Arts EducationOMNI HOTEL-LONE STAR ROOMWe intuitively understand the powerful and essential connection between arts education and artsparticipation. This session describes new research on that connection, based on data from the NationalEndowment for the Arts Survey of Public Participation in the Arts. It shows, for starters, that artseducation is the single most powerful predictor of adult arts participation, but it also reveals atroubling and steep three decade-long decline in the number of Americans receiving arts educationas children. The study confirms what have been largely anecdotal claims about the erosion of artseducation over time, and it identifies the ways the decline has been distributed among Americanchildren. Of interest to educators, arts leaders and advocates alike, this briefing underscores longterm concerns about the future of arts audiences and the provision of quality education in America.Presenter:Moderator:NICK RABKIN, SENIOR RESEARCH SCIENTIST, NATIONAL OPINION RESEARCH CENTER,CULTURAL POLICY CENTER, UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGOPATRICIA MOORE SHAFFER, PROGRAM EVALUATION OFFICER,NATIONAL ENDOWMENT FOR THE ARTSA Quantum Leap for Arts Funding: The Minnesota StoryOMNI HOTEL-CAPITAL BALLROOM AIn 2008 the citizens of Minnesota voted to approve the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment,a sales tax increase designed to raise revenue for the environmental, heritage and art programsfor the next 23 years. The plan, enacted in fiscal year 2009, is providing a significant expansion ofresources for a variety of public causes, including the state arts agency. This session explores theeffects—both anticipated and unexpected—of the Legacy Amendment during its first year. It alsodiscusses the advocacy collaboration between the environmental and cultural communities, thelong-term marketing investment, and the strong legislative leadership that were all essentialto the development of a new arts funding stream for the state.Presenter:SUE GENS, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, MINNESOTA STATE ARTS BOARDNASAA Assembly 201019

Tools like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, blogs and text clubs are used increasingly by citizens,as well as elected officials, for sharing information, promoting causes and expressing political views.Can arts advocates capitalize on these networks to increase our influence and visibility? Can socialmedia help us to recruit new arts advocates or mobilize support in a crisis? Can they help us raiseadvocacy awareness?
