I said I was going to only do one post a week through August, but here are two things that might be of interest. First, Julia Levy of CultureCraver (kind of an interesting concept: GoodReads for culture is the way I think of it) contacted me when she heard about Building Communities, Not Audiences and wanted to do an interview. Here is the result: www.culturecraver.com/
And I just heard from Dorothy Gunther Pugh at Ballet Memphis. (She’s a contributor to the book.) They are advertising for a community engagement position. Here’s the info:
