Join us for coffee, tea, and cookies while networking with other artists, arts administrators, and program providers. Sorry, no SNL’s Linda Richman, but you will all have the opportunity to “talk amongst yourselves.” Additionally, we’ll consolidate the topics you submit at breakfast for break out discussions held during this time.

Lily Yeh will be signing copies of her book.You may bring your own copy of Lily Yeh's book for the signing, or purchase a copy from Acorn Books, which will be on site during the summit with copies of her work.
