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.

Paul Getty Museum; Joan Cumming, Senior Director of Marketing and Communications at the Autry National Center for the American West; Shana Nys Dambrot of Flavorpill; Paige Simpson, Director of the Balboa Park Learning Institute; and Robert Sniderman, Consulting Associate, Interchange Group 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.
