From Rust Belt to Artist Belt
Last week I attended the conference named in this post's title. It was held in Cleveland, a city that's done a remarkable job of reinventing itself. It was a fabulous, inspiring, brain-filling experience. I went with a group of thirteen arts professionals sent by the Arts Alliance as part of the alliance's ongoing efforts to improve the visibility and economic strength of the arts here in Washtenaw County. I think there will be a lot of significant things coming out of both the conference and the larger effort.
