Basin to Range Exchange
The Nevada Basin to Range Exchange (BRX) supports, promotes and celebrates statewide collaboration through arts, culture, and community.
BRX is a program of the Nevada Arts Council, a division of the Nevada Department of Tourism and Cultural Affairs. BRX includes an in-person gathering for intercommunity arts and cultural conversations, ongoing professional development, and networking. BRX aims to:
- Foster relationships between Nevada’s rural and urban communities.
- Connect resources, assets, traditions, and histories between rural and urban communities.
- Identify and encourage cross-sector relationships and collaborative practices for impactful cultural-arts strategies.
Combined, 50 members from across the state will be selected from an application process to attend an in-person gathering in Tonopah, NV on April 18-20, 2022. Program participants will range from artists, community stakeholders, as well as representatives from private and public sectors. Attendees will gather to discuss challenges and strategies intended to create solution-driven projects. During the convening, attendees will also engage in facilitated conversations exchanging ideas, desires based on the needs of community arts development and creative placemaking. Additional break-out sessions will be included for networking, project ideas and strategic planning.
This program is for anyone interested in connecting rural and urban Nevada through the arts. This includes but is not limited to Veterans, Health Care workers, Public Administrators, Seniors, Arts Organizers, Business Owners, Community Leaders, Educators, and Arts Enthusiasts. *Due to the nature of the program, only one representative from an organization will be able to apply.
