Tuesday, June 28, 2016 by Kayleigh Hughes
If you’re a local arts and culture professional in need of marketing and networking opportunities, the city’s Economic Development Department and Cultural Arts Division may have you covered. They’ll be offering 10 scholarships to send local creatives to the National Arts Marketing Project Conference, which will be taking place in Austin on Nov. 11-14. Those who live in the Austin area and either work for an arts, culture or creative organization or are independent creatives are eligible for the scholarship, which covers the registration cost of the conference. The conference itself includes two half-day interactive pre-conferences, three keynote speakers, more than 35 professional development sessions, peer-to-peer learning experiences and networking and social opportunities. Applications for the scholarship are due by 11:59 p.m. EST on July 20 and can be found on the NAMPC website. The recipients will be announced on Aug. 15.
