This conference was supported in part by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
The Pennsylvania Council on the Arts believes that arts and culture play a vital role in the diverse communities across Pennsylvania. The multitude of artists, arts organizations, and arts programs and projects provide our fellow citizens with opportunities to engage in and benefit from the arts as creators/artists, audiences or participants. Statewide arts in education programs provide schools and community settings access to the arts for people of all ages. The PCA will continue to—directly and through regional and statewide partnerships—provide support and information to enhance the delivery of cultural services to the people of Pennsylvania. http://www.arts.pa.gov
