Richard M. Fairbanks Symposium on Civic Leadership
Building Vibrant Cities Through Art is the third Richard M. Fairbanks Symposium on Civic Leadership, presented by UIndy’s Institute for Civic Leadership & Mayoral Archives in partnership with Indiana Humanities and the Arts Council of Indianapolis.
Event Details

How do civic leaders use the arts to build vibrant cities? Can cities sustain affordable, healthy arts ecosystems and also realize the full promise of urban renewal—and if so, how? What can Indianapolis learn from places like Philadelphia, home of the nation’s oldest percent-for-art program and site of many impactful public art projects that engage residents and visitors alike?

Join us as we explore the opportunities and tensions that lie at the intersection of the arts and civic leadership at the half-day Fairbanks Symposium presented by the Institute for Civic Leadership and Mayoral Archives at University of Indianapolis, Indiana Humanities, and the Arts Council of Indianapolis. The event will open with an INconversation with Penny Belkin Bach, director of the Philadelphia-based Association for Public Art. Penny will talk with Michael Kaufmann, director of special projects and community investment for the Health & Hospital Corporation of Marion County (Eskenazi Health). Registration is free; lunch included.
