This week the Emerson had the esteemed privilege of hosting a forum with 21 invited fellow Gallatin Valley Arts Organization leaders. While the focus was on collaboration for our annual Give Big festivities, the collective message was clear. The arts are a critical component in a thriving community.
Thank you Big Sky Art Council, Bozeman Actors Theater, Bozeman Art Museum Bozeman Film Society, Bozeman Symphony, Compassion Project, Ellen Theater, Gallatin Art Crossing, Intermountain Opera, Montana Ballet Company, Montana Shakespeare in the Parks, Mountain Time Arts, Mountain Air Dance, SLAM, Sweet Pea Festival, Random Acts of Silliness, Raison D’être Dance Project, Verge Theater, Warren Miller Performing Arts Center, & 406 Cirque.
Through the arts, the Emerson and these incredible organizations are offering opportunities for our community to connect, collect shared experiences and consistently redefine what it means to be human. It was an honor to spearhead a gathering of such brilliant minds and we are very excited to see you all again.
