Maryland Arts Summit Registration Now Open
On June 6-8, Maryland Citizens for the Arts, in conjunction with the Maryland State Arts Council, Maryland State Department of Education, and AEMS: Arts Education in Maryland Schools Alliance will host the Maryland Arts Summit at UMBC. Panels led by and for the Maryland arts sector will include arts advocates, arts educators/teaching artists, independent artists, and arts organizations. The summit will also highlight the work being done throughout the state through dialogue, learning and networking opportunities, and focus on the growth of Maryland arts. The first of its kind for the arts in Maryland, summit events will start on June 6 with a pre-conference hosted by AEMS. The MSAC Maryland Traditions Heritage Awards will be presented on June 7 in the UMBC Performing Arts and Humanities Building and the Individual Artist Award ceremony will take place on June 8 in the UMBC University Center. Throughout the duration of the summit, an artists bazaar will take place and serve as a networking and promotional opportunity for Maryland artists to showcase and potentially sell their work.
