DEEP DIVE INTO KEYNOTE
"The arts are a way of being in relationship, a way of being in the world," says Basting. In this workshop Basting builds on the examples from her keynote and invites attendees to explore their own ideas for channeling the arts for social good. Drawing on her experience teaching Arts and Social Entrepreneurship, Basting will guide the group through shaping ideas for sustainable social change through the arts and collaborations across sectors of care and civic support.
