Sunsetting as Praxis

Common Field Session
Organized by Deana Haggag/ NATIONAL

Is dying the worst thing that can happen to an arts organization? Why are there so few models of successful closures in the field? What resources could exist to best support a fruitful sunset? How can practitioners have these conversations in the spirit of success and not shame? This conversation will consider assumptions and alternatives to widely-held notions about when, how, and why arts organizations should sunset.
