<stewardship> the conducting, supervising, or managing of something; especially: the careful and responsible management of something entrusted to one's care.

If the arts are about relationship building and cultivation, and not just about a transaction, then how do we become better stewards of our current audiences while reaching out to new ones. This session examines how artists, organizations and entrepreneurs invest in long-term relationships with audiences and communities, and how that investment can be an agent for change on both sides.
