Questions from Cultural NonProfit Forum on Creative Community for you (which you can respond to, for me)

Here are all the questions that were posed as points of discussion at the Cultural NonProfit Forum on Creative Community at the Italian Community.

I'm going to the Greater Milwaukee Committee's Creative Community Summit on February 4 and 5 where I will be trapped in a room with a handful of other locals talking about art and culture in our sector (or playing board games if we quickly decide the arts and culture in the region don't matter).

Though I am a middle aged white guy, I have the soul of a teenage Latino rebel. So I want to be well equipped with many takes on these questions so that I can be an honest (I imagine at times, contrary) voice at the table during this 2-day summit.

You can offer your responses at the bottom of this post or e-mail me at jonathanwest@artsyschmartsy.com.

El questions (okay, my soul isn't pure Latino teen rebel):

  1. What are the unique assets of the greater Milwaukee arts and culture sector?
  2. How does the public beneift from the unique assets of the arts and culture sector in greater Milwaukee.
  3. What are we doing now that we should continue or strengthen in order to sustain a high quality arts and culture sector in Greater Milwaukee? And, what if anything, should we consider discontinuing?
  4. What are some examples of innovative practices that arts and culture organizations have implemented or are thinking about implementing in order to survive and thrive?
  5. What are some ideas for collaborative action that might strengthen the arts and culture sector in the great Milwaukee area?
  6. What are the core principles and values of the greater Milwaukee arts and culture sector that need to be preserved?
