As states reopen and communities prepare for post-pandemic recovery from COVID-19 and systemic racism, FAA’s Arts Impact Initiative will host a panel discussion: to address timely questions regarding the future of creative labor and economies and to provide relevant information and resources for decision-making across the arts and culture sectors. This public event aims to facilitate a much-needed dialogue about the challenges and opportunities facing creative communities as they reemerge and reimagine equitable futures for art and artists.

The hour-long panel discussion features guest panelists:

Jamie Bennett - Interim President & CEO, United States Artists

Dr. Cynthia Oliver - Professor of Dance and Associate Vice Chancellor for Research in the Humanities, Arts, and Related Fields at the University of Illinois

Dr. Jennifer Novak-Leonard - Associate Research Professor and Research Director of Arts Impact Initiative in the College of Fine and Applied Arts

Kevin Hamilton (moderator) - Dean, College of Fine and Applied Arts
