October is National Arts and Humanities month and EAP/SFBA would like
to share two exciting, upcoming events with you.
Friday, October 1st 5:00p-9:00p
Emerging Arts Professionals/SFBA present a
First Friday Mixer at Litquake’s 11th annual festival
Autumn has arrived and what better way to kick off the season than with an
evening of old and new friends, swanky cocktails, danceable tunes and cutting
edge literary artists?
Emerging Arts Professionals/SFBA personally invites you to join us for
1st Friday Mixers, a monthly event where members of EAP/SFBA can get
together and enjoy the best of what the Bay Area art community has to offer!
Each month we will highlight a new event in a new exciting location and offer a
chance for members to connect.
For our very first Mixer of the fall, we celebrate Opening Night of Litquake’s
11th annual festival.

Thursday, October 14th 10:00a-11:30a
Emerging Arts Professionals/SFBA in partnership with the Foundation Center –
San Francisco and Americans for the Arts Creative Conversations present….
Investing in Our People: How We Support our Arts and Culture Workers
and Strengthen the Field (Part of the Foundation Center – San Francisco’s
A Day for Arts Organizations)
With the world rapidly changing around us, much conversation to date has centered
on how arts organizations and artists are faring during these challenging times.
Often, less attention is paid to how we are taking care of the many dedicated arts
administrators laboring through budget cuts and increased workloads.
This panel will bring together a dynamic group of arts and culture leaders from the
Bay Area to discuss ways in which organizations and individuals are dealing with
these challenges, taking advantage of opportunities, and developing new approaches
to support individuals who are working in the arts and culture field.
Panelists include Ken Foster, executive director, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts,
Judith Smith, artistic director, AXIS Dance, Marc Vogl, program officer,
William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.
JUST ADDED Alex Michel, managing director of Hub Bay Area.

the Arts partners with emerging leaders from across the country to host Creative
Conversations. Last year, more than 1,500 emerging arts leaders participated in
43 locally hosted Creative Conversations throughout the country.
