The Significant Role of Artists:
Part of the Arts Extension Service’s work is to provide trainings and workshops for arts managers, artists, and public or private clients across the nation. Arts Extension Service Director, Dee Boyle-Clapp, has been busy recently leading workshops for the Connecticut Office of the Arts. These workshops and trainings serve as an introduction to the significant role the arts play in communities. Dee presented to Artists, Arts Administrators, and City Planners in Connecticut on the value of the arts, both economically and how it serves a community and its people.

With over twenty years of experience, Dee’s workshops are full of real life examples and unique perspectives that provide new insights to participants. Arts Extension Service leads workshops like these throughout the year. To learn more about these trainings and workshops check out our website and to learn more about the work Dee did in Connecticut read the full blog article here.
