Highlights: CAS21 Engage Now
The Canadian Arts Summit is an event in demand, attracting a diverse, at-capacity complement of 150 delegates, speakers, leadership fellows and senior arts leaders, including artistic directors, executive directors and volunteer board chairs of Canada’s largest arts institutions. This year’s theme Engage Now invited delegates to consider critical questions like: How do the aesthetic values of cultural institutions shape the values of a nation? What is a diverse audience and how do we engage them? How are our institutions experimenting in order to be more relevant to more people, more often?
