Nina Simon, Executive Director of the Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History, will join us to discuss her terrific new book, The Art of Relevance, which is filled with inspiring examples, rags-to-relevance case studies, research-based frameworks, and practical advice on how your work can be more vital to your community. Whether you work in museums or libraries, parks or theaters, churches or afterschool programs, relevance can work for you.
"Nina Simon is our oracle in the arts. She has a tremendous knack for telling the arts field where we have to go next, and we are all better for the wisdom she provides. Hers is one of the most important, urgent, and informed voices writing in the arts today, and I hope we heed what she’s telling us—she speaks the truth, and gives us the map to navigate forward towards a more relevant role for all of the arts in our communities." - Clay Lord, Americans for the Arts
