SD Arts Conference Takes On The Economy

September 15, 2010

OACOMA, S.D. - While the arts contribute to the human condition, those who create and sponsor the arts want to show that they can also make a solid contribution to a tough economy. Pat Boyd, executive director of South Dakotans for the Arts says that will be a theme of their annual gathering, Arts Equinox, this weekend in Oacoma.

"The jobs that are going to power our economy are going to be those that require creative thinking and problem solving, and really, innovation. The arts are definitely part of the kind of education people need to get to that kind of training and jobs, and to that kind of thinking."

Boyd says they will touch on the importance of the arts in helping the country through tough times.

"What connects us, what keeps us human, what keeps our society moving along, what keeps our democracy working. And really we have always relied on the arts, through the Great Depression, and through wars and recovery from all of that. There's not a good time for warm and fuzzy, but it is a good time to talk what are the practicalities and the practical applications of what we know the arts can do."

The conference is this Friday through Sunday at Cedar Shore Resort in Oacoma.
