NPN/VAN supports additional face-to-face connections through the spring Mid-Year Meetings, rotating to various Partner cities across the country. Mid-Year Meetings provide a forum for a smaller group of attendees than at the Annual Conference, when meaningful exchange around organizational successes and challenges, best practices, and possibilities for regional project development take place. Mid-Year Meeting discussions focus on topics such as cultural policy, organizational development, and professional development for both artists and administrators. In an effort to inform and engage artists within the local communities, NPN/VAN uses the Mid-Year Meetings as an opportunity to gather and host a workshop for artists.
NPN/VAN Partners should consult the portal for information on each year’s cities and dates.
