On the Road

As you read this, if all has gone well, I will have begun a six week stretch of travel. The two principal stops are Perth, Australia (Western Australia Showcase) and Santiago, Chile (II International Seminar of Arts Management at Central Gabriela Mistral, GAM). In each city I am speaking at a conference that will be focusing on community engagement in the context of the host country (or region, in the case of Western Australia). Interestingly, performing arts presenter venues form a key group of attendees in both conferences.

I am sure there will be much on which to report when I get back, but as this is the start of the slow summer season, I will probably wait to get to the really good stuff until early fall. As has been my practice for the last few years, I’ll be cutting back on the frequency of posts over the next couple of months.

While I will be posting some over the summer, for those of you who (probably wisely) pay little attention to blogs during the dog days, have a great break. Hope to “see” you in the fall. For the rest of you, stay tuned. We’ll try to have some interesting things to read in the weeks to come. And, as always . . .

Engage!
