The National Performance Network, including the Visual Artists Network, (NPN/VAN) based in New Orleans, is pleased to announce that the NPN/VAN Board of Directors has approved ten new NPN and VAN Partners to join the Network on July 1, 2016.
This concludes a two-year process that balanced a number of factors simultaneously including geography, aesthetics, and cultural diversity; values and mission alignment; and expanding new opportunities for artists. NPN/VAN received 100 nominations and invited 45 organizations to submit full applications. From this group ten organizations were selected to join the Network.
Partnership Committee Chair and Cowles Center Community Engagement Consultant, Michèle Steinwald says, “The board and staff conducted thoughtful and sensitive work to come to this decision. The slate of new partners is a dynamic group of organizations, representing varying perspectives and practices across the country.”
