One State Together in the Arts isn’t your ordinary conference. Rather than lots of plenaries and concurrent sessions, One State has about a dozen presentations—one keynote and several 20-minute talks. Our presenters are all dynamic, electrifying, and inspiring storytellers.

Arts Alliance Illinois and the Illinois Arts Council Agency are currently seeking suggestions for presenters for the upcoming One State Together in the Arts conference September 28-29, 2015 in Evanston.

We are looking for dynamic, electrifying storytellers who, in a 20-minute talk or performance, can illustrate how creative activity helps to promote positive change on personal, community, and global levels. We’re especially interested in Illinois-based presenters.

Have you heard someone present who inspired you to do something new, reconfirmed your commitment to the arts, or just plain rocked your world? Send us your suggestions by Wed, July 8, 2015. CLICK HERE TO SUBMIT:
