Emerging Arts Leaders: Philadelphia’s Creative Conversation is our flagship event, a dynamic mini-symposium held in October in chorus with emerging arts leaders networks throughout the country as encouraged by Americans for the Arts. Our seventh annual Creative Conversation will feature engaging keynote and breakout presentations, as well as opportunities for attendees to share their thoughts.
Our keynote speaker, Stanford Thompson, is a musician and educator who serves as the Founder and Executive Director of Play On Philly, bringing music education to students in underserved areas throughout Philadelphia. Recognized as a TED Fellow, Stanford believes that music education is a powerful tool for positive personal and community change.

What’s next in the arts? Solve Philadelphia’s most compelling problems, create healthier dialogue in our society, and foster mutual understanding and respect throughout our communities. Using the story of Play On Philly’s impact, Stanford will challenge conventional thinking, action and impact throughout the arts sector and encourage our artists and arts leaders to take the path less traveled.
