Michael Kaiser, president of the Washington, D.C.-based Kennedy Center for Performing Arts, will be the guest speaker at a free arts leadership symposium at the Pantages this Friday from 9-11 a.m. The symposium, one of two in Washington state, is part of a national tour for Kennedy Center initiative “Arts in Crisis,” and will address issues of sustainability and relevance for arts organizations.

Congressman Dicks, who represents Washington’s sixth congressional district and is the chairman for the House Interior, Environment and Related Agencies Appropriations Subcommittee, will give opening remarks before a 90-minute conversation with Michael Kaiser, moderated by Andrea Allen, education director for Seattle Repertory Theatre. There will also be a 30-minute meet-and-greet session with Kaiser, and refreshments will be provided. The event is hosted by ArtsEd Washington.
