May 1-3, 2014, at the Captain Cook Hotel, Anchorage Alaska
The Alaska State Council on the Arts invites you to explore new territory during our statewide arts and culture conference. Latitude: 2014 Alaska Arts Convergence will be held in Anchorage from May 1-3.
Latitude offers traditional conference elements such as panels, plenary speeches, and networking opportunities, along with ways to connect with individual artists, arts organizations and their communities.
Additionally, we will expand the scope of conference activities through a number of innovations, including
• Integrated artist performances and presentations, including an off-site First Friday “Passport” event that activates public spaces, artists, and galleries beyond the conference rooms.
• Artistic responses to general sessions
• Pop-up arts activities and performances
• Opportunities for attendees to impact the future direction of the arts in Alaska through high-level plenary sessions and working group break-out sessions.
• An intensive Creative Capital professional development training for individual artists that will be held Friday, May 2-Sunday, May 3. Because space is limited, artists must apply to participate here: http://bit.ly/CreativeCapitalPDP. The deadline for applying is March 24, 2014.
• A high-level professional development seminar for musicians that will be held on Saturday, May 3rd and led by the esteemed Storm Gloor, a music business professor at the University of Colorado-Denver. Because space is limited, musicians must apply to participate here: http://bit.ly/StormSessionsAKmusic. The deadline for applying is March 24, 2014.
Please note that a special 50% discount rate is being offered for independent professional artists and students (current student I.D. required at check-in).
