CREATIVE Conversations   

Call for papers are ongoing
The Phantom Gallery will look at how the city influences art, and how artist transform the city by contributing to civic dialogue and quality of life. These installations will produce "Creative Conversations" presenting artist speaking about their art.

What are Creative Conversations?
Creative Conversations are local gatherings of engaged citizens in communities across the country and are part of a grassroots movement to elevate the profile of arts in America. 

 Phantom Gallery Chicago and Phantom Galleries LA have come together with the intent to create a network of support for artists, curators and arts organizers who are engaged in temporary public art installations, in storefronts and projects that engage community response. 

We envision the project as a portal for shared knowledge, a resource of best practices, ongoing professional development, and a place for moral support to enhance our collective impact. 

On August 7th, 2013 we launched a Podcast produced by GYST Radio on Blog talk.  GYST Podcast Pop-Up Research Station will develop gradually: hosting creative conversations that explore  “Temporary Public Art Installations”,” Storefront Art Movements”, “Creative Place-making”, and projects that are the impetus for “Cultural Urban Planning”.

Some of these local convening's have grown into cohesive, organized emerging leader networks, been the catalyst for the development of community wide cultural plans, and helped to shape local arts advocacy by connecting the cultural sector with the business community and political leadership. This local tool empowers arts administrators to take a leadership role in their own community by both designing programming and galvanizing their peers to connect professionally.

Creative Conversations are once again partnering with the Arts Action Fund to generate increased energy around the grassroots movement to elevate the profile of the arts in America. 

By hosting and/or participating in a Creative Conversation, you will automatically receive Free Advocate membership to the Arts Action Fund at no cost whatsoever. Members of the Arts Action Fund receive timely action alerts and the electronic version of the quarterly Arts Action News publication by e-mail.
