Emerging Arts Professionals San Francisco Bay Area (EAP) is excited to announce our 8th annual convening, Emergence 2018: Reclaim the Art, Rebalance the Work. Collectively, we will explore the importance and benefits of reconnecting the essential practices in our lives: our art and our work. The convening is co-presented by Root Division on Monday, June 11, 10AM to 5PM, with Pre-Conference programming June 7—10.

This year EAP asks the questions...

► What does it mean for the arts and culture field if arts workers are removed from the creation or experience of art?

► What knowledge can we access when we recenter culture?

► How can we hold space for the pursuit of creative experience while managing the daily mechanisms of an arts organization?

► How do we spend each day remembering why we do this work?

Join us for a day of intellectual, emotional, and embodied exploration of tools we can use, and models we can look to, for bringing art and work together at Emergence 2018: Reclaim the Art, Rebalance the Work — presented by Emerging Arts Professionals San Francisco/Bay Area (EAP) and Root Division.

“As the arts reflect the humanity in human history, so should the arts field reflect the humanity in how we work, plan, and connect to the world,” says EAP Co-Director Rhiannon Evan MacFadyen. “Our network works to shift the arts field to be equitable for all people, to be a valued and sustainable career sector, and to honor the individual arts worker as a creative and whole person.”

EAP's goal is for you to walk away with actionable next steps, tangible tools, and a strengthened network to support your work. Join colleagues for an inspiring day of critical introspection, collective strategizing, and creative action!

KEYNOTE

Queer multidisciplinary social practice artist/performer, director, arts consultant and coach, Mx. Beatrice Thomas: if you can combine magic with equity, you can certainly combine art with work.

SESSIONS

Join roundtables on institutional support of creative practice, indigenous values, and integrated arts; unpack “professionalism”, crossover skills, and and our culture of “No!”; and work collaboratively to build an Art/Work Balance Manifesto, a creative archive, and a vision of a better arts future! Light breakfast, snacks, and refreshments will be provided and a no-host lunch will be available on-site.
