Rachel Brask accepted to Practice/Practice at AS220

AS220 has announced the list of artists and arts organizers accepted to its Fall 2018 session of its arts administration professional development program, Practice/Practice. This four-day conference for those involved in the arts will provide participants a forum for learning best practices in the arts administration field — networking, community outreach, public art, increasing accessibility, marketing and more.

Brask is an abstract artist best known for her current body of oil paintings evoking the impression of viewing rain on a stormy day. She is also involved in several area arts organizations. For Art League Rhode Island, Brask is a board member, secretary, and co-chair of the Communications committee. She is also involved with the Pawtucket Arts Collaborative, Seekonk Artist Network, and East Providence Arts Council. Brask hopes to apply what she learns over the course of this professional development program to her involvement in these organizations.

The 4-day residency program consists of a series of workshops and discussions, presentations by participants and faculty, a tour to visit partner arts organizations, hands-on making sessions in AS220’s Industries and a party. Workshops will include presentations and breakout sessions with AS220 staff and expert visiting faculty, and will allow plenty of time for discussion and debate. In the spirit of Practice//Practice, some workshops also involve working sessions, bringing theoretical discourse into the practical realm.
