Welcome to #artsmgtchat!
We hold a weekly Twitter chat on Fridays at 2:00PM Eastern time. The goal is to bring together a community of creative, unique and passionate arts & culture management professionals, advocates, educators and artists.
If you are new to Twitter chats, please check our Twitter Chat 101 guide.
I’m currently designing the master schedule of chats. If you are interested in writing a blog post and becoming a guest on the chat, please send me a DM on Twitter (AllyYusuf_) or email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org (or) email@example.com.
