One State Together in the Arts Conference
May 23, 24, 2011
Rather than lots of plenaries and concurrent sessions, this year One State has a total of ten presenters. Their talks will explore breakthrough ideas, breakthrough people, and breakthrough connections. Most of them will have 20 minutes (no more, no less) to share a big idea or big inspiration with the entire audience. There will also be breakouts where participants can interact with the presenters and share their own stories and breakthroughs.
Conference Presenters Include:
Bruce Mau (Keynote) -- visionary designer and author.
Frank Maugeri -- co-artistic director of Redmoon Theater
James Goggin -- director of design, print, and digital media for the Museum of Contemporary Art
Albany Park Theater Project (APTP) -- a multiethnic community of teen artists that has created more than 50 world-premiere original plays and performed for 30,000 audience members
