Inspiring Action: Arts & Culture Network Night in 2021


Arts & Culture Network Night is a space designed to nurture connections, build trust and inspire action.


Thank you to Caleb Wright and Seth Bisen-Hersh for the beautiful performance to open up Arts and Culture Network Night in April.  You can learn more about Caleb on the Cuyahoga Arts and Culture directory, or on Instagram and Facebook. More info about Seth can be found here or @sethbhdotcom on all social media platforms.

Remember, that you can also create a profile or share event info on the CAC directory, ClevelandArtsEvents.com.

As we opened Network Night, Luis took a moment to acknowledge the ongoing fight against white supremacy and the stress that our communities continue to bear, especially those who are BIPOC. Luis shared some of his favorite resources for taking care of ourselves:

Business of the Network

Whether you are an artist or someone who works at an arts organization, Business of the Network is a great opportunity to get input and support. Simply pose a question for discussion and host a 20-minute breakout conversation.

These were the conversations hosted in April.


Do you have a conversation you’d like to host? Simply join us at an upcoming event or contact Lj for more information. 

The Marketplace

The Marketplace is another great way to make connections at Arts & Culture Network Night. Here are a few of the requests and offers we heard in April:

  • Dawn is looking for places to distribute comics for Comics on the Corner, the project she created to improve literacy in her neighborhood. 
  • Luis offered to tell folks more about the CAC Grant applications that will be a live beginning in May.
  • Jensen works with the Mandel Humanities Center at Tri-C. They are looking for projects in the community they can support. 
  • And Christopher, who was the Marketplace Leader in April, made a declaration that he WILL do physical therapy 5 days a weekWay to go, Christopher. We know you can do it! 

Matching funds for your arts and culture projects are available through the Cuyahoga Arts and Culture Match fund with IOBY.org
