BREAK & BUILD 2015 07.30.15
Break & Build | Program Details Here
This activity is supported by the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs. Sponsored by Wayne State University College of Fine, Performing and Communication Arts and Supino Pizzeria.
Forward Arts’ mission is to grow, sustain, and preserve Detroit’s arts communities and industries. One way we accomplish this is through our Emerging Arts Leadership Detroit (EALD) program, building skills among and connecting Detroit's emerging arts administrators. Led by the EALD Steering Committee, the program’s 1st annual Detroit arts forum, Break & Build, takes place on Saturday, August 15th from 11AM-3PM, at Schaver Hall at Wayne State University. And on Friday night, WSU's Business of Art series takes place at the same location at 6PM.

Detroit is in an once-in-a-lifetime city flux with new transit, water, and housing policies. New systems and models are being thought about, tested, and implemented throughout the city. We have the same opportunity in our arts community. In EALD conversations with other art mangers and artists, they are looking to get involved in arts issues, but are not being engaged and don't know how or what to do either.
Break and Build is an opportunity for Detroit's cultural network, civic and city leaders, local businesses and art organizations, to collaboratively brainstorm about what arts infrastructure and policy would benefit them as a whole, and set up the framework to build a stronger collective future. Attendees will be invited to participate in a dialogue to pro-actively define a collective approach to infrastructural challenges facing Detroit’s’ arts community.
Ultimately, the goal is to generate solidarity and field awareness regarding the arts, and build a network to provide the opportunity of sharing resources and skill building. These support structures would support and stimulate an interconnected and vibrant arts and cultural ecology in Detroit.
