      More on the conference...

      queer performance and a groundbreaker in expressing the artistry and
      diversity of the communities it serves. For nearly a decade The
      Theater Offensive has created cutting edge new works presented by
      top-notch artists from around the world and worked with community and
      youth groups to build creativity, honesty and courage.

      Anna Faith Jones is President and CEO of The Boston Foundation,
      one of the largest and oldest community foundations in the country.
      The Boston Foundation recently established the Fund for Arts and
      Culture, which has awarded over $2 million through its Arts and
      Audience Initiative to organizations that address the central goal of
      linking artists, institutions and communities in collaborative
      relationships to expand, diversify and deepen cultural participation.

      The arts are a great contributor to the economic vitality of our
      communities. Yet, studio rents are doubling; small arts organizations
      are getting squeezed out; Providence, Chelsea and Lowell are wooing
      artists from Boston. how does an artist survive? How does the media
      cover the issues of artists' survival? How can artists and the media
      work together to address these issues affecting us all?

      are
