Impact Arts & Culture Conference Speaker Spotlight:

Takenya LaViscount, National Endowment for the Arts
We are thrilled to feature a wonderful array of expert presenters at the Impact Arts & Culture Conference on June 27, 2014 at York College of Pennsylvania, a one-day regional conference providing professional development and networking opportunities to creatives, designers, and those in the arts & culture sector. Today, we spotlight Takenya LaViscount from the National Endowment for the Arts, a member of our "Meet The Funders" panel.

Takenya LaViscount manages the Challenge America Fast Track (CAFT) grant program for the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA). CAFT is one of the few national funding sources that enable eligible entities, particularly those organizations that are small or mid-sized, to extend the reach of the arts to underserved populations—those demographics whose opportunities to experience the arts are limited by geography, ethnicity, economics, or disability. In 2013, CAFT awarded 150 grants totaling $1.5 million dollars.

Meet Takenya and our other funders at the "Meet The Funders" panel discussion by registering for the Impact Arts and Culture Conference. To learn more about our scheduled speakers, sessions, and ways to save, please visit ImpactArtsConference.org
