Detroit, MI

This February, Sphinx Organization will launch their inaugural international gathering on diversity, SphinxCon. The National Guild is pleased to be a founding partner in this historic undertaking. Executive Director Jonathan Herman will be among the distinguished speakers to share ideas, challenges, successes, and lessons learned in pursuit of increased diversity in all aspects of the performing arts sector.

SphinxCon will be held in Detroit, MI, February 15-17, 2013. The event will bring together leaders from all disciplines of the performing arts sector and aims to illuminate the critical topic of diversity, doing so in an unprecedented manner and scope.  The takeaways from the convening include sharing of ideas, building connections, illustrating a broad view of diversity across the disciplines, development of resources and contacts, and empowerment to take action. A series of featured and guest speakers will shape the conversation in an innovative, unconventional format inspired by TED global set of conferences.

Do not miss your chance to participate: early bird registration is only $69.00. You can register early on the Sphinx website before October 15, 2012 & Save!

About the Sphinx Organization
The Sphinx Organization is a national non-profit founded in 1996 by Aaron P. Dworkin, a graduate of the Interlochen Arts Academy and the University of Michigan (B.B. and M.M) and Carrie A. Chester, a graduate of the University of Michigan (B.A. in Multicultural Studies and M.A. in Elementary Education). A violinist himself, Mr. Dworkin founded the organization to help overcome the cultural stereotype of classical music, and to encourage the participation of Blacks and Latinos in the field. Ms. Chester currently teaches at Burns Park Elementary in the Ann Arbor Public Schools. She is a strong proponent of public education and actively works to eliminate predictable racial disparities in our schools.
