ELABirthday Party (date change)

Emerging Leaders in the Arts Buffalo (ELAB) is celebrating its Five Year Anniversary, and the group wants you to be a part of the ceremonies. When Buffalo was down and out, the arts always remained strong in this city. The arts in Buffalo should be considered the glue that continues to hold our neighborhoods together. Without these “emerging leaders” who continue to ensure that the arts remain strong, our city would not be where it is today.


So let’s celebrate the victories, and pay tribute to the artists who continually devote their time and expertise to Buffalo. Let’s take a look back over the last five years and revisit our accomplishments. And then let’s look toward the future… what will the next five years bring? Hopefully, we can all continue to rally around our artists, thus ensuring that Buffalo continues to push the envelope where our culturals are concerned.

ELAB is the organization that has brought us City of Night, ArtLab, Cirque de la Lune, and Creative Conversation.
