Arts For a Better Future Training Events This Summer

Back in February I posted about the ethnoarts training conference Arts For a Better Future that would be occuring this summer in the UK.  Here is a reminder about that plus an upcoming offering coming to Dallas this June!  For more info about both events see the press release below:


This one week get-your-feet-wet arts exploration event is where participants enjoy inspiration, encouragement, skill development, and networking with like-minded people. Come broaden your palette of tools for cross-cultural arts engagement by learning how to be better catalysts and co-creators for local, indigenous creativity.

The newly published book Creating Local Arts Together: A Manual to Help Communities Reach Their Kingdom Goals (see site here) serves as the foundation for our interactive instruction time (participants get a free copy!). We infuse the entire event with real life experiences to illustrate how to help communities draw on their artistic resources to respond to their spiritual, social, and physical needs.
