Arts and cultural organizations across the country are striving to increase their footprint of relevance, appeal and representation in an often-indifferent world. How can we be more proactive and nimble as we seek to matter more to more people? With the help of three change-makers leading innovation in our field, this year’s TACA Perforum will explore the arts’ relevance in contemporary culture and examine the value of learning, journalism, and inclusion in the arts.
