On Monday August 28th the Support for Artists Planning Team met at Case Western for a four-hour working session to plan their community engagement strategy. After holding a mini-World Cafe, the group developed their plans for engaging 75-100 artists in an upcoming World Cafe
. This will be an opportunity for the community to learn about the Planning Team's work and provide input as they develop a set of recommendations for the new approach to funding local artists. The Planning Team also prepared for its presentation to the CAC Board, which will be on September 11. Finally, the group reviewed a framework for assessing different national models for funding individual artists. The next working session will be Monday September 11.
