Please join us for a lively panel discussion led by some of the top arts leaders in our community, where they will address some of today’s most pressing topics:

- How can we rebuild our audiences?
- How can we form more collaborations and cross-promote our events?
- How can we advocate and support each other better?
- How can we weave DEI into our narrative and create accessibility in the arts for all?

Meet our panelists:
- Amber Broderick: General Manager, DuPage Symphony Orchestra
- Erica De La O: Artistic Director, Salt Creek Ballet
- Diana Martinez: Director, McAninch Arts Center
- Nolan McCants: Global Fine Art Photographer, The Nolan Gallery
- Michael Wilder, Ph.D.: Dean of the Conservatory of Music and Division of Arts and Communication, Wheaton College
- Justin Witte: Curator, Cleve Carney Museum of Art

From music, dance, theatre, art, and everything in between, we look to our expert panel to drive the conversation about the future of the arts in a post-COVID world.
