Ben Cameron: The True Power of The Performing Arts

How can the magic of live theater, live music, live dance compete with the internet? How are hybrid careers in the arts offering new opportunities for the arts? Ben offers a bold look forward. I am giving a workshop at the upcoming P.A.V.E. Conference where Ben will deliver a keynote. I can’t wait to meet him.

Ben Cameron is the Program Director, Arts, at the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation in New York, where he supervises a $13 million grants program for theater, contemporary dance, jazz and the performing arts. Grants happen in three main areas: commissioning and distribution of new works; building strong arts organizations; and supporting national arts organizations.

During 13 seasons, Cameron has been a panelist on the opera quiz during the Live from the Metropolitan radio broadcasts from New York. He has also served as a member of the Tony Awards Nominating Committee.
