The world of the arts is changing. New developments in technology and media, changing generational demographics and more have ushered in new roles for teachers, performers and consumers; new demands on schools, organizations and artists; and a new balance between craft, history and tradition.
On Oct. 10–13, 2012, Interlochen Center for the Arts will host a symposium to explore these changes and look ahead to the future of the arts. The conference, Information, Space and Time: The Arts, Creativity and Learning in the 21st Century, is being held in conjunction with Interlochen Arts Academys 50th anniversary.
“The Academy’s 50th anniversary is an important milestone, both to honor Interlochen’s rich history and to look ahead to the future, which is exactly what we plan to do at the upcoming symposium,” said Jeffrey Kimpton, president of Interlochen Center for the Arts. “We will welcome arts leaders from around the globe to help us explore the changing world of the arts, which is an essential responsibility we have to future generations.”
The all-star ensemble of speakers, thinkers, performers, presenters and leaders in the arts who will be in attendance include:
