In light of on-going developments with COVID-19 and after thoughtful discussions with the South Dakota Arts Council, we have decided to move our 2020 South Dakota Arts Conference to a fully online, virtual experience that will take place on Thursday, October 29 – Saturday, October 31. We believe this is the safest approach for the well-being of our arts community and we are excited that a virtual event makes it possible to broaden the learning opportunities and engagement at this time.
The state arts conference is held every two years at different locations across South Dakota. Workshops, panel discussions, plenary sessions focus on key areas such as racial equity, arts education, fundraising, local arts councils, grant-writing, and marketing/social media. Arts leaders are invited to attend and provide keynote presentations, workshops and panel discussions.
