Having been on twitter for quite some time, I have noticed (and sometimes participated in) many "twitter chats". Many are centered around a particular professional practice (ie. marketing, Pinterest, higher ed) but it appeared to me that there were not many ongoing chats around the arts and arts management.
That's when I "met" Alexandra Siclait (@maraboubel), currently the Cultural Affairs Project Supervisor for the Atlanta Mayor's Office of Cultural Affairs in my search to find an existing twitter chat around the arts. Agreeing that nothing really addressed arts practice on a regular basis, we decided to launch "#ArtsElevate" - a weekly chat on Fridays to help artists, arts administrators and enthusiasts across the country and the world.
We look forward to connecting with you! We will launch Friday November 6, 2015 at 3-4pm EST. Follow and participate here: @artselevate #ArtsElevate w/@maraboubel and @studioloraine.
Mesaba Co-op Park is a member owned recreational facility that was established in 1929 that is open to the public. 240 acres of woodlands surround Northstar Lake. The Park offers camping, four rustic cabins, a yurt and a historic pavilion suitable for group events. Members make every effort to insure respectful use of the land and facilities.
What a honor it was to be selected to serve as a media delegate for the 2015 Nobel Peace Prize Forum titled “Inclusive And Sustainable Peacemaking And Peace Building” which was held March 6-8, 2015 at the Radisson Blu in Downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Minnesota is fortunate to have been selected to host such a marvelous event, under the umbrella of Augsburg College located in Minneapolis, Minnesota. "Under the auspices of the Norwegian Nobel Institute, the Nobel Peace Prize Forum inspires peacemaking by focusing on the work of Nobel Peace Prize winners and leading international peacemakers and peace builders."
The 2015 forum featured former United States President and Nobel Laureate Jimmy Carter and his latest book: “A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence and Power.” It was the first time I had seen Mr. Carter live and it was a truly inspiring experience. Perhaps you can see me - third row on the right! #peaceitforward
