Emerging Arts Leaders/Los Angeles Announces Creative Placemaking Symposium on Saturday, April 6, 2013
DESIGNING DISRUPTION: HOW ARTS INNOVATORS ARE SHAKING UP THE LA EXPERIENCE
Los Angeles, CA— On Saturday, April 6, 2013, Emerging Arts Leaders/Los Angeles, a project of Community Partners, will host a symposium entitled “Designing Disruption: How Arts Innovators are Shaking Up the LA Experience” at Santa Monica Playhouse (1211 4th Street Santa Monica, CA 90401). The event will begin at 11:00am and conclude at 5:00pm, including an on-site networking mixer. Tickets are $20.

The event showcases arts practitioners and representatives of organizations that send shockwaves through our city with “disruptive” ideas that push boundaries, question conventional ways of thinking or otherwise destabilize the status quo. “Disruption” in the field of business is positive, with disruptive products or business models constantly sought after and applauded as signs of true innovation.
The symposia speakers use unconventional methods to create and showcase content that forces us to think differently about how preconceived notions surrounding commerce, cultural authority and transportation shape Los Angeles. How might things look different? How can we walk away from this conference with fewer assumptions? And how can you, an event attendee, learn to apply disruptive thinking to your own career?
The keynote speaker for the symposium is Mark Allen, the Executive Director of Machine Project. Molly Gardner, Grants and Community Projects Manager for the Arts Council for Long Beach is a confirmed panelist for the event. Two further panelists will be publicly announced shortly.
This day of dialogue is EAL/LA’s April 2013 iteration of an annual Creative Conversations event convened in celebration of National Arts & Humanities Month in October each year. Creative Conversations were established in 2004 by Americans for the Arts and have been so successful for EAL/LA, that an additional annual Creative Conversations event is now held each April.
Creative Conversations are part of a nationwide effort to elevate the profile of the Arts through local gatherings of Emerging Leaders in communities across the country. Networks choose topics of particular relevancy and/or interest to their local arts community to address. The organization of these events varies from city to city, but the intent remains consistent. EAL/LA has a rich history of Creative Conversations and it is the most highly attended event each year for the organization.
EAL/LA encourages creators, performers, funders, arts administrators and anyone who is interested from any and all fields to attend.
