In 2013 a Cultural and Entertainment Task Force​ was created to explore "funding options to preserve and enhance assets in the MKE Region. Made up of political, cultural and business leaders, the task force will examine funding issues, share perspectives, and identify options for further consideration by policymakers, private sector funders and community leaders." This Community Conversation will focus on the work of the Task Force, deepen the audience’s understanding of the issue, and create an opportunity for participants to contribute their thoughts.

Given that the Task Force was formed to address the Public Policy Forum's findings that key cultural and entertainment assets are at risk, Rob Henken, President of the Public Policy Forum will be on hand to answer your questions along with Mr. Sheehy and several other Task Force members.

Please Note: Each alumni may bring no more than one guest. Only those registered will be permitted access to the museum and the event.

It's our responsibility to get off the sidelines and get involved. Future Milwaukee not only helped me to get involved, it made me think about outside my community and my little box. More importantly, the program truly got me to think into the box of many in the greater Milwaukee area. This is our Milwaukee and Future Milwaukee is for those who want to make the community better.
