This year's conference is scheduled for October 8th, from 9am to 1pm at the University of Redlands, Orton Center. We'll be exploring how the arts can work across sectors to better our communities. Through presentations, conversations and the opportunity to network, you'll be introduced to other potential collaborators interested in the role that creativity can play in solving problems and strengthening the fabric of our communities. 

Collaboration allows us all to benefit: arts organizations can broaden their audiences and increase the quality of life in our county while helping other organizations address community issues. Together we can work toward social equity, become better stewards of our natural and built environment, and increase economic opportunities. Please join the conversation!

Meet our keynote speakers,  David Burns and Austin Young of Fallen Fruit!

Fallen Fruit is a collaborative art project that began in Los Angeles in 2004 by making maps of “public fruit” – fruit that grows on or over public property. Since this time the projects have expanded to include diverse site-specific artworks that embrace public participation, temporary art installations, and social media focused actions. Fallen Fruit’s art works encourage the public to experience their city as a fruitful, generous place, inviting people to engage in sharing and collectively explore the meaning of community and collaboration.  Recent exhibition projects include commissioned works by LACMA, Queensland Art Gallery/Gallery of Modern Art, Athens Biennale, Prospect 3+, Bemis Center for Contemporary Art, Portland Art Museum, Wexner Center for the Arts, among others.  Fallen Fruit was originally conceived by David Burns, Matias Viegener and Austin Young. Since 2013, David and Austin have continued the collaborative work.  Fallen Fruit uses fruit and public space to change the way you experience the world. Learn more about Fallen Fruit at their website, http://fallenfruit.orgThe 2016 Arts Connection Annual Conference will be held on October 8th with a focus on collective impact through the lens of creative placemaking. We look to increase cross-sector participation in this year’s discussion, and introduce potential collaborators to the role that creativity can play in solving problems and strengthening the fabric of our communities.

Through collaboration we all benefit. Arts organizations can broaden their audiences and increase the quality of life in our county while supporting other organizations in their missions. Together we can work toward social equity, become better stewards of our natural and built environment, and increase economic opportunities.

Arts Connection, the Arts Council of San Bernardino County, was launched in 2013 and serves as the County’s designated state and local partner to the California Arts Council. A survey of our countywide arts community found a need for regular convenings to help facilitate networking and collaboration. Thus, an annual Arts Connection conference was established in 2014 drawing participants from across the region. This led to the establishment of an annual Arts Connection conference, which draws participants from across our region.
