Fears & Follies: An Experimental and Safe Space

Small group, peer-to-peer feedback session that allows safe space to share issues, challenges and problems that can turn into opportunities for growth and development in unexpected ways when unencumbered by hierarchy. Share challenges related to internal matters such as staff-to-artists and artist-to-artist issues which can be difficult to share during the open conference sessions. Participants will be asked to think of a particular pattern or pressing issues. Each participant will get five minutes to share and then cross talk and peer feedback will happen for five minutes. This is an opportunity to understand issues in the field and how we may support each other through our challenges, failures and fears as administrators. Gia led this workshop at the 2017 Alliance for Artist Communities Conference.
