Arts Council Napa Valley (ACNV) will host the second annual Napa County State of the Arts meeting at 5 p.m. Tuesday, May 31, at the Napa Valley Performing Arts Center at Lincoln Theater.
Building on the success of the sold-out inaugural meeting in 2015, this meeting is designed to engage the community in a discussion on how local arts supporters can collaborate to build a strong, unified and celebrated arts scene for the entire community. All arts supporters, community advocates, business and civic leaders are encouraged to join in this convening of stakeholders.
Olivia Everett, president and CEO of ACNV, said, “Amazing things happen when a group of passionate people come together to work on a shared goal, which is why we are so excited to host this event. This year we’ve focused on more attendee engagement and networking opportunities, to just plainly do what we love — share ideas, create and have fun!”
The event will be kicked off by the presentation of the 2016 Napa County Arts Hero award to an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to the arts in Napa County, as a leader and advocate. The public is open to nominate an arts hero and the honoree is selected by the ACNV Awards Committee.
ACNV will provide an update on key strategic initiatives, with a special focus on the upcoming Napa Valley Unified School District Arts Education Master Plan. Special presentations will provide important perspectives on a variety of topics that impact the local community and the future of the arts.
The event is open to the public. Registration is free for ACNV members and $15 for prospective members and $10 for students. For more information visit napavalleyartscouncil.org
