Music Professor Selected to Participate Leadership Institute for Latino Arts and Culture
Lia Uribe, assistant professor of bassoon in the Department of Music, has been selected to participate in the National Association of Latino Arts and Culture Leadership Institute in San Antonio, Texas, July 10-15, 2017.
The NALAC Leadership Institute is a week-long rigorous program in arts management and leadership development that delivers innovative and practical strategies that lead to successful business practices in the arts. The dynamic learning environment cultivates a familiar, inclusive cultural space that provides multiple generations of Latino artists, arts managers and cultural promoters the support, knowledge and agency to confidently respond to and initiate solutions to complex cultural questions.
"Being part of the NALAC Leadership Institute is a great honor and a wonderful opportunity to be surrounded by like-minded artists, researchers and advocates of Latino art expressions. I go there with confidence that an open conversation about our roles and responsibilities as Latino artists in American society will happen, in order for us to continue finding our individual voices while becoming leaders and ambassadors of inclusiveness and multiculturalism through the power of art," Uribe said.
Originally from Colombia, Uribe maintains an active career as a chamber musician, orchestral player and artist-teacher. Her international work includes concerts in Colombia, Canada, Puerto Rico, Costa Rica, Finland, Ecuador, Germany, Greece and Japan, and upcoming this fall, Argentina. Her research interest is centered on Latin American music, which has led her to work directly with composers commissioning, premiering and performing new works for the bassoon, especially from the contemporary Latin American art music repertoire.
Support for Uribe to attend NLI is provided in part, by the Arkansas Arts Council, an agency of the Department of Arkansas Heritage, and the National Endowment for the Arts, through the Sally A. Williams Artists Fund.
