Napa County State of the Arts Summit




This year the program will be run similar to a ‘TED talk’ type of event and we will be addressing one of the most pressing issues for our creative industries; space. More specifically, we will be discussing live/work space and creative spaces in Napa County.

The Summit will be discussing live/work space and creative spaces in Napa County. The keynote speaking this year will be David Keenan, cofounder of the Oakland-based Omni Commons and Safer DIY Spaces, an Oakland-based, fiscally sponsored coalition of architects, artists, contractors, and community organizers that was born out of the tragic Ghost Ship fire in Oakland, CA in December 2016.

After the Keynote speaker, there will be a discussion panel, talking about this issue from various viewpoints on a local level. The discussion panel will include keynote speaker David Keenan, Molly Rattigan, head of Housing and Homelessness for Napa County and arts supporter, as well as Robin Schabes, head of the economic development department for the City of Napa and career long supporter of placemaking through the arts. The panel will be moderated by Chris DeNatale, ACNV’s CEO and President.

The discussion panel will be followed by a mixer.
