"My Those active in the arts are not usually confused with engineers or electricians, however, approxi- mately 200 arts-oriented Delawareans recently came to- gether to build bridges and make connections. The second annual Biennial Statewide Arts Summit was the occasion for representa- tives of arts agencies and organi- zations to put their heads to con- struction and connection, and the goal of many of their labors was to create sound financial foundations for their causes. The day-long event is the brain- child of the Delaware Division of the Arts, and it is designed to pro- vide information and food for thought at almost every level of operation of arts agencies or edu- cational facilities that incorporate the arts. Speakers and workshop leaders worked with such topics as "Bridges to Alternative Income Sources," "Models for Linking the Arts to the Schools," "Arts: The Bridge to the Right Brain," "Ac- counting Changes and Tips for Non-Profit Organizations" and "Show Me the Money" (a two- patter separated for artists and or- ganizations). The keynote address was "Collaborations and Partner- Late obituaries ClaytonJ.

Lerman's address moved from the importance of collaboration on the artists' level to challenges of creating cohesive unions with other constituencies. The summit participants heard state politicians pledge their sup- port for the arts and they heard the mayor of Providence, R.I., tell of the creation of an arts district in the heart of his city. The district gives financial incentives to artists who locate there, remodeling and restoring buildings, and providing a draw for locals and tourists to visit, eat and generally spend money in the area. But, a big part of the summit was the opportunity for those in- volved in arts agencies to talk to and listen to one another. Nancy O'Brien, executive di- rector of the Rehoboth Art League, said the sharing of ideas and experiences was invaluable. She said the speakers and work- shop leaders were excellent and they provided information that was thought-provoking and prac- tical.

The only problem was, when you looked at the workshops offered, you wanted to go to all of them. All of our full- time staff members were there, and we were all going as fast as we could in many directions." O'Brien said the representatives of the art league have plenty of in- formation and ideas to bring back to the board of directors and ac- tive members. She said there was a lot of discussion of how the arts can bring money into an area, and how the creativity of artists can spark entrepreneurship. She said a workshop presenta- tion by Davina Grace Hill was particularly instructional. She said the executive director of the Salis- bury-Wicomico Arts Council is ative, new approaches to raising money, promoting activities and increasing awareness of the arts. "She is really a walking ency- clopedia," O'Brien said. "And, she reminded us of simple, but very important things, such as re- membering to say 'Thank you.' "That's one thing I would like to do, say 'Thank you' to the divi- sion staff for pulling this all to- gether for us. It was truly one-stop shopping." Milford resident Bon- nie Chandler attended the summit wearing two hats. She is a board of directors member of both the Sussex Arts Council and the Southern Delaware Choral Soci- ety. As a board member and own- er of a small business, she said she somehow ended up attending sev- eral workshops on finances for nonprofits. "All in all, the summit was very workshops might not have been as much fun as some, but they were very interesting and useful." She said workshops of the fi- nancial topics ranged from a look at current accounting changes that relate to nonprofits, to using web- sites, to research funding sources. "Fundraising techniques were very well laid out, the presenters really know their topics," she said. "We were listening to discussions on how tourism is impacted if you entice arts organizations to areas where there might already be crowds. We got tips on how, once they are there, you get them to your local events. I thought of how that applies to Sussex County with our outlets bringing people in. Even if we each came home with one little idea and one new connection, it was well worth it," Chandler said. "WHEN YOU SHOP IN OUR COMMUNITY, YOU CAN ALWAYS COUNT ON COURTEOUS FRIENDLY SERVICE. " A community merchant will stand behind what they sell. When you shop locally you are not only helping yourself, you are helping our community. Local merchants pay taxes which help to support education and other public services. Become a community person.
