The future of arts marketing isn’t almost here -- it has one foot wedged squarely inside your door and it’s pushing whether you like it or not.

This November, in the heart of Atlanta's cultural scene, the 2014 National Arts Marketing Project Conference will deliver tools and strategies to move your marketing past the here and now. Marketing triumphs require more than wide-eyed optimism— they rely on strategy, momentum, and bold creativity.

Take this adventure with us and invite the future in.

Author: The Tanning of America: How Hip Hop Created a Culture that Rewrote the Rules of the New Economy

Named one of Fast Company’s Most Creative People in Business (2014) and Advertising Age’s Executive of the Year (2013) Steve is an expert at helping Fortune 500 companies thrive in popular culture. His acclaimed book The Tanning of America: How Hip Hop Created a Culture that Rewrote the Rules of the New Economy, offers insightful lessons for understanding and engaging with today’s young adult market—what he calls “The Tan Generation.”

Steve will kick off the 2014 NAMP Conference by demonstrating why promoting diversity in the arts is no longer a mere challenge for cultural marketers, but a prerequisite for survival and continued relevance in today’s pop culture obsessed world. Attendees will leave with strategies and best practices for bringing the arts to today’s diverse young adult market.

“Young people champion and embrace the multicultural beauty and power of today’s America. Nobody gets this - or what it means for marketers, tastemakers, the culture at large - better than Steve Stoute.”
— Judy McGrath, Former CEO of MTV Networks.
