Free Panel Discussion On Nurturing & Sustaining Yourself In The Non-Profit & Arts World

The Lackawanna County Arts and Culture Department and the Lackawanna County Arts, Culture and Education (ACE) Council) will present Nurturing and Sustaining Yourself in the Non-Profit and Arts World, a free panel discussion on Saturday, September 15, in the Ladies Parlor at the Scranton Cultural Center at the Masonic Temple from 1 PM – 2 PM.  A reception, featuring light appetizers and the music of the Tyler Dempsey Trio, will take place from noon – 1 PM.

The goal of the program is to provide a perspective on the challenges and opportunities in the non-profit and art world and how to craft successful strategies to excel in those arenas.

The featured speakers, who will share their expertise on creating a sustainable model for long-term success, include: Gabrielle Senza, a visual artist who in 2011 launched a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund her installation at the Everhart Museum of National History, Science and Art; Tracy Pratt, Manager of Development at Johnson College; and Maria Wilson, Executive Director of the Waverly Community House, where a wide range of arts and community events are offered.

The Lackawanna County Arts and Culture Department was formed in 2004 and is supported through an education and culture fee that generates approximately $1.2 million for use in enhancing the County’s quality of life.  The office offers community grants, public arts programming, workshops and lectures and oversees the operation of the Electric City Trolley Station and Museum.
