Set to be held in Washington, DC on May 6, 2017, this year’s edition of the Arts Summit will focus on Cultural Moonshots, exploring how the arts can propel our thinking towards new ideas and actions, including the leaders we look to for guidance and inspiration. As we explore and investigate these ideas together, we'll also honor President John F. Kennedy's legacy through ideals of courage, service, justice, freedom, and gratitude. The program will serve as a reflection on current and past efforts as well as the launching pad for new collaborations and initiatives among participants. The Arts Summit is part of JFKC: A Centennial Celebration of John F. Kennedy, inspired by five enduring ideals often ascribed to JFK: Courage, Freedom, Justice, Service, and Gratitude.
