Linda Sheridan, Founder & CEO-San Diego Cultural Arts Alliance
May 23, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Linda Sheridan’s talk will address using the power of art to change lives and to tell us about “Graffiti Art”; why it persists and what we need to understand in order to mitigate the destructive aspects of graffiti vandalism.
The San Diego Cultural Alliance ( The Alliance) takes the creative talent and need of the population that is driven to acts of graffiti vandalism and redirects that energy into something sustaining and beneficial to the community as well as to their individual lives.
As the CEO and Founder of The Alliance, Linda has a 30-year history of working in both the public and private sector. From these experiences, Linda readily recognized that educating youth and community is crucial in order to mitigate graffiti vandalism and tagging. With her combined years of government & political relations and arts background, she has been instrumental in creating a fully comprehensive, well designed and effective Graffiti Education and Mural Arts Program for the San Diego region. Linda has stated that her education in art has allowed her to see things from different perspectives and possibilities than an individual who has not had this training.
