Colleague Connect: Quality over Quantity Networking

EALS welcomes arts leaders from all around the country, so we thought we should begin the day by getting to know each other! Rather than try to meet every single person (and struggle to keep them straight), we’ve designed a morning networking activity in which you’ll get to know a new group of colleagues beyond just what’s on your name tags. All you need to bring is a pen, and we’ll take care of the rest.


Lunchtime Activity: Brown Faces|White Spaces Podcast Presents: A Seat At The Table

A live show discussion about current events, personal & social identity, and the current role of the arts community.

All from the perspective of two brown faces.#HowBoutThat

Hosted by Tevin Giddens and Marjon Wolfe

Lunchtime Activity: Mapping Your Identity

A movement-based activity that encourages participants to reflect on their own identities, engage in meaningful

conversations with others, and examine the intersectionality that exists in all of us.

Come to this session to learn how to understand yourself and others a (little) bit better.

Facilitated by: Becca Simpson and Chika Ekemezie, student staff members

in the Center for Diversity & Inclusion at American University

Postcards-For-The Arts

EALS would like to invite everyone to stop by our Postcards-For-The Arts Table in the Rotunda. We will have postcards, pens, addresses, and stamps for you to write your representatives and show your support for the arts!


At the close of the day, we treat all of our attendees to a catered reception with hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar (ask anyone who attended last year about the meatballs – they were divine). The reception also features music by the American University String Quartet. It’s a great time to reflect on the day, speak to new friends, and share ideas over a glass of wine.
