Levine selected out of 4,500 arts leaders
BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Neil Levine, executive director of Brevard Cultural Alliance (BCA), was recently invited to participate in the Americans for the Arts National Arts Policy Roundtable and Leadership Forum in Utah.
The Leadership Forum is an invitation only meeting, featuring 20 of the nation’s top local arts agency executives. Levine was selected out of 4,500 arts leaders from across the nation to participate, and is the only representative from Florida. Attendees will convene to present case studies, explore strategy and challenge current thinking.
“This is one of the biggest opportunities we have this year,” said Levine.
“BCA will bring the innovative approaches we’ve delivered in Brevard – specifically in Titusville and Palm Bay – to this high level strategy working group as a potential roadmap for the country.”
Over the past few years, BCA has partnered with cities to help them build cultural destination and learn how to express their authentic identity through innovative events.
Two great examples include the “Art & Algorithms Digital Arts Festival” in Titusville, an annual event providing interactive, digital arts experiences while highlighting the abundance of engineering and scientific talent in the area, and the “Art of Sustainability” in Palm Bay, using large-scale kinetic sculptures to enhance community dialogue about issues of environment and sustainability.
“It’s an honor to be included in this elite group of great minds – and it’s a huge win for Brevard County,” said Levine.
The Leadership Forum is held simultaneously with the Americans for the Arts National Arts Policy Roundtable, engaging high level decision makers and thought leaders including corporate CEOs, foundation presidents, philanthropists, government leaders, military heads, artists and academics – recommending policies and strategies critical to the arts and advancing American society.
The forum takes place September 21-24 at the Sundance Resort & Preserve in Utah.
