Michael Kaiser in Maine

Michael M. Kaiser, president of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, visited Portland today as part of “Arts in Crisis: A Kennedy Center Initiative,” an arts management symposium. Kaiser addressed the challenges facing nonprofit arts organizations in such areas as fundraising, building more effective boards of trustees, budgeting and marketing.

The event was well attended and questions from the audience were well received and expertly answered by Mr. Kaiser.

The event was also well attended by Maine's press. Frank Ferrel from MPBN was there to record the event which will feature on tonight's Maine Things Considered. Channel 6 news was there and Rob Caldwell from 207 interviewed Michael Kaiser for what we believe will be this evening's show.

We will make excerpts from today's meeting available as soon as we can.

We'd like to thank the Portland Museum of Art for allowing us to have this event within their wonderful space.
