TOURS

Please note, you will be able to choose one tour from two options on Sunday, October 14. Descriptions of the tours are available here. You will be invited to sign up for them during registration that morning. Considerations to note:

  • RAIR (Recycled Artist in Residency Program): We will go on a 20-minute bus ride to a bustling recycling facility with a charismatic residency founder. While the facility will not be in operation on Sunday, it is required that you wear sturdy shoes since there is uneven ground (which can sometimes be muddy). The artist studios are located on the 2nd floor accessed by stairs only.
  • The Fabric Workshop and Museum: We will go on a 0.7 mile walk from Moore to this exciting contemporary museum with on-site studios. The Museum itself is accessible and the walk from Moore is flat.

TRANSPORTATION

  • Visit our Hotel + Travel page for details on getting to Philadelphia and the Loews Hotel.
  • Institute sessions on 10/14 + 10/15 will be held at Moore College of Art & Design (1916 Race St, Philadelphia, PA) in the Logan Square area of Center City Philadelphia. Moore is an 18-minute walk from Loews Hotel. Sunday morning you can walk with a group to the Institute from the hotel - or you can make your own way there.
  • On Saturday and Monday, shuttle transportation will be provided from Loews to and from reception locations.

DRESS

 

Casual! Relax and be comfortable.

OTHER ITEMS YOU MAY WANT TO BRING

 
  • Business cards
  • Travel mug and/or water bottle
  • Clothing layers
  • Comfortable shoes for tours
  • Umbrella

WHAT TO EXPECT

With almost 60 attendees from across the US (and Canada!) at the Institute, we look forward to an energizing and engaging time. The agenda is jam-packed, but we have also built in time for questions and conversations, off-site visits to a variety of arts programs, parties, and opportunities to meet artists and arts leaders. We hope you'll leave the Institute with one of the most important resources - each other! - and that you’ll continue to offer one another advice, ideas, and support as you develop your plans in the future.

With so many attendees, there won't be time for lengthy introductions about each program at the start of the Institute, so practice your 30-second "elevator speech" and you’ll have a chance to hone it during our time together!

Moore College of Art & Design - Through its undergraduate Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees for women and its coeducational Graduate Studies programs, Moore cultivates creativity, promotes scholarship and prepares its students for professional careers in the visual arts by emphasizing critical thinking, problem solving, risk-taking and strong communication skills.

WHAT TO EXPECT

The Nonprofit Or Not day offers a chance for small-group learning about the basics of starting a nonprofit organization. We've selected a range of topics to cover as an introductory overview and we are excited to work with Thaddeus Squire, Chief Commons Officer, CultureWorks Commons Management to offer this training. With less than 25 attendees, you'll have a whole day to learn and share with your peers. At the end of the Nonprofit Or Not day, we'll join together with the other Institute attendees for food and drink at the ICA. Then on Sunday, we launch the 2-day Emerging Program Institute!

With almost 60 attendees from across the US (and Canada!) at the Institute, we look forward to an energizing and engaging time. The agenda is jam-packed, but we have also built in time for questions and conversations, off-site visits to a variety of arts programs, a block party, and opportunities to meet artists and arts leaders. We hope you'll leave the Institute with one of the most important resources -- each other! -- and that you'll continue to offer one another advice, ideas, and support as you develop your plans in the future.
