Women In Arts Leadership Symposium: Connecting, Empowering and Changing the Culture

The Arts Extension Service hosts the Women in Arts Leadership Symposium at UMass Amherst on Saturday, October 27th. Students and local arts professionals will gather for a day of network building, roundtable discussions, and workshops in support of women’s leadership in the arts.
