On Saturday, October 23rd, Emerging Arts Leaders/Los Angeles (EAL/LA) will host a day-long Creative Conversation conference at the Getty Center. The day’s events will start at 10am and conclude at 4pm. Tickets are $15 and will include lunch.

The 2010 Creative Conversation event, entitled Turning Points: Strategies for Success in the Arts During Times of Transition will focus on the transitory nature of arts administration, as well as the uncertainty that individuals and organizations in the field face during this time of economic instability, and what steps and decisions professionals should take to ensure a successful career. A series of five speakers, will discuss the various implications of this topic, such as, creating upward mobility within an organization, establishing collaborations to improve networking, and what type of leaders are needed in the current market for arts organizations to thrive. Letitia Fernandez Ivins, Civic Art Project Manager at the Los Angeles County Arts Commission, will host the day.

The 2010 EAL/LA Creative Conversations encourages arts administrators from all fields to attend, as well as creators, performers, and funders. The day-long event will include opportunities to mingle and to discuss the event’s topic in an open forum with the speakers. To further encourage the concept of artistic exchange, the afternoon will include two docent guided tours of the museum’s permanent collections. After Creative Conversations has concluded, EAL/LA invites all attendees, and those who cannot attend the main event, to join them for a happy hour at The Glendon Bar and Kitchen in Westwood. Conveniently located just minutes away from the museum, the bar and eatery will provide an open and public forum for discussion and exchange of the afternoon’s topics, as well as further networking opportunities for those interested in contributing to their own career “turning point.”

Parking at the Getty is not included in the cost of the event ticket. Attendees are encouraged to carpool, or to take public transportation.
