We had a momentous day on Sunday, March 8. The in-depth conversations we feature will provide viewpoints from professionals working in the field of non-profit arts and culture. In doing so, the MOCA ACT program series hopes to share resources with other arts and cultural organizations that will lead to sustainability and growth despite resource challenges and inequities in funding. Ultimately, MOCA aims to build coalitions with fellow organi … zations and institutional partners to advance historically marginalized stories and in turn redefine the American narrative. Our first discussion "Challenges to Building Arts and Culture Infrastructure" will feature Aki Carpenter, Principal and Director of Social Project of Ralph Appelbaum Associates RAA , a multidisciplinary design firm that has created some of the most stunning and moving museums and cultural institutions worldwide; Andrew Recinos, President of Tessitura Network, an arts enterprise software company dedicated to advancing the business of arts and culture through technology, service, and community; and Chris Wu, Partner and Director of Wkshps, a multidisciplinary design practice that crafts identities for art institutions, public spaces, non-profits, and global brands alike. We look forward to your participation, and to sharing this and many more exemplary strategies to build a more equitable future.
