Congratulations to the Graduating Urban Arts Leadership Program Fellows!

Hardy congratulations to the 2015-16 Urban Arts Leadership Fellows on their completion of the program. Graduation will be held this week and then the Fellows are off to undertake new endeavors. To hear about their individual journeys in their own words, check out the Urban Arts Leadership blog.

Amid the news of the Brexit, a stock market plunge, and things heating up in the run up to the presidential election, did you also take notice of the recent change in overtime rules? According to the Department of Labor, the new rule increases the threshold for overtime pay to $47,467 and will be put into place as of December 1, 2016.

If you manage an organization, you probably have plenty of questions. For those of you in the cultural field, GBCA is partnering with Maryland Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts for a special session to discuss the implications of this change on Monday, July 25 at 6:00 pm at the Motor House. More information on this event is coming soon. In the meantime, you can learn more about overtime rules at the Department of Labor website: 

It’s almost here! GBCA will again host the Culture Tent at Artscape. Be sure to stop by for performances and information on some of the area’s finest cultural organizations. Interested in volunteering? You can contact Janica Alston at [email protected] to sign up.

Congratulations to Mary Sawyer Baker Prize winner, Paul Rucker, who was recently named 2016 Artist as Activist Fellow: Racial Justice + Mass Incarceration by the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation. Paul was previously awarded a residency at the Robert W. Deutsch Foundation, a 2016 Rubys Artist Project Grant, and a research fellowship at the Maryland Institute College of Art at the Center for Race and Culture.

All the best and happy July,
