Adrian Ellis, Founder, AEA Consulting and the Global Cultural Districts Network
Jeremy McCarter, writer, director, and producer, and co-author of Hamilton: The Revolution

The all-day meeting focused on defining a cultural policy research agenda, surveying the landscape of cultural policy work currently being done, determining best practices in research center establishment, and discussing whether a center is the optimal approach considering the strengths and goals of SPEA.

Following the meeting, SPEA hosted a reception for with the above guests together with state and local arts partners, SPEA students, and faculty from across campus who are interested in cultural policy and arts administration. A great opportunity for our students to chat with these impressive folks!
