This is the Curb Center's first conference. I'm delighted that it's on this topic because it really goes to the heart of what this center is all about. That is, we are looking at a specific kind of content in the U.S. cultural policy world. We are looking at policies and practices of America's arts industries, at legislation, and regulation as the combined sources of U.S. cultural policy. We are also going at it with, I think, a very special and novel kind of process. We are determined to be dedicated to the process of connecting scholars and industry leaders and legislative and regulatory staff so that we are connecting the scholars and researchers with practitioners. I think we have done that today and I am delighted with the array of specialists from different perspectives and practitioners from different organizations, different institutions, and entities that we have with us.
