The first week of May has come and gone and with that, the annual wave of Frieze-related art fairs and activities. We hope you survived! This week we are focusing on improvement and starting with how to advocate for the arts and humanities-check out READ for that and more. For GO, head to the NY Historical Society for a vital #metoo oriented conversation on how museums and institutions can support women and their stories. APPLY has professional development opportunties for those in the dance community and Harlem, plus the usual job round-up. Another week, another chance to do just a little bit better. Onwards!
