Conversations on Patronage: Supporting the Ephemeral


Kristy Edmunds,  Executive and Artistic Director of the Center for the Art of Performance at UCLA, has worked closely with Susan Nimoy to purchase the historic  Crest Movie Theater, which will be transformed into a new venue dedicated to providing performance and gathering space for boldly emerging artists in an intimate-scaled setting on the Westside of Los Angeles. The theatre will be named after the late Leonard Nimoy, whose influence has also led to a street on Paramount Studios to bear his name.

Also joining the conversation are Sarah Arison, Chair, National YoungArts Foundation, and Olivia Marciano, Artistic Director of the Marciano Art Foundation, who are dedicated to supporting young artists at critical junctures in their careers – the very artists who will create and present new work at The UCLA Nimoy Theater. The conversation will explore the complexities of supporting work of contemporary performance and the vital role that spaces such as the Nimoy play as community hubs.  

Participants: Kristy Edmunds (Executive and Artistic Director, Center for the Art of Performance), Susan Nimoy (Patron), Sarah Arison (Chair, National YoungArts Foundation), Olivia Marciano (Artistic Director, Marciano Art Foundation) Moderator: Patton Hindle (Senior Director of Arts at Kickstarter)
