Building Creative Community
An Intermediary’s Role in Catalyzing Impact between Universities and Communities
Monday, October 17, 2:00pm – 3:15pm
Organized by Corey Madden, Executive Director, Thomas S. Kenan Institute for the Arts.
Moderated by Lisa Mount, Director, Artistic Logistics. Presented by Lindsey Bierman, Chancellor, University of North Carolina School of the Arts; Corey Madden, Executive Director, Thomas S. Kenan Institute for the Arts; and Jim Sparrow, President & CEO, Arts Council of Winston-Salem/Forsyth County.
Innovative thought and practice happen both at the academy and the community levels, and the outcomes when the two areas meet can be powerful. This deep-dive session is focused on how an intermediary can catalyze university and community partnerships to collectively address complex community challenges such as economic development and racial equity. Presenters will share how partnering with an intermediary can amplify and advance the work of national and local funders. Together, the group will discuss the relevance of intermediaries to their current and future work and help test the road map as a replicable framework.
