Community Conversations: Shifting the Cultural Landscape

CommConv

By Mark Masuoka, Executive Director and CEO

What happens when an art museum opens its doors and invites everyone to take part in a community-wide conversation to influence the direction of the museum’s public programs and community initiatives?  This is exactly what the Akron Art Museum is undertaking in a series of open forums to initiate meaning discussions about the inner life of a city.  Community Conversations is a way to bring together amazing thinkers and doers to engage with the museum and to move beyond just pressing the “Like” button.

How do we come together to do something challenging, different, outrageously fantastic and extremely unpredictable, that other’s would only imagine doing?  That’s how things change, grow and get better.  That’s when everything starts to shift.

Are you part of the conversation?
