Folks whom I have recently hosted (at LSU 2009-2014):
*Holly Sidford: Principal, Helicon Collaborative. Alan Brown’s equal, her research and analysis has framed much of the debate and discussion on policy over the past decade.
*Steven J. Tepper: Dean, Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts, Arizona State University. He has been at the forefront of policy consideration and formulation in the field for well over a decade, and has shaped policies from professional development, to arts education, to the role of creativity in the wider society.
Michael Rohd: founding artistic director of Sojourn Theatre; Associate Professor at Northwestern University School of Communication.
Rohd is a much sought after speaker and advisor in the areas of social practice, capacity building, and community engagement and his influence is considerable.
Eric Booth: Arts Education. Eric is at the center of the burgeoning teaching artist movement and he is one of the key leaders in that arena (and on a global basis).
