August Breakfast Meeting

Connecting Creatives with Community

Ginna Foster Cannon

What does it take to build a collaborative organization or project from the ground up? How do you balance a “pie in the sky” vision and long-term goals with the “grunt work” of establishing infrastructure and defining the words, images, and user experiences that will reflect your vision? Join us as Ginna Foster Cannon, PhD, shares her experience in helping establish the Rutherford Arts Alliance, a new 501c3. She addresses creativity and why is it important in your life and for the community as a whole. Learn how she applies a holistic and transparent approach to communications and problem-solving in order to foster a thriving, creative community.


Ginna Foster Cannon joined the Convention & Visitors Bureau staff in 2018. Most recently, she was a post-doctorate fellow at the Center for Historic Preservation at Middle Tennessee State University. While working on her dissertation, “An Exploration of Tennessee’s Historic Hotels as Cultural Heritage Tourism Assets,” she gained hands-on tourism experience as the professional resident at the Tennessee Department of Tourist Development and Main Street experience with Historic Lebanon.

Prior to MTSU, she worked in the publishing industry, as project manager in business development for McGraw-Hill, and as president and founder of Swift Book Promotion, LLC. In addition to her doctor of philosophy from MTSU, she earned a bachelor of arts from Harvard College, master of business administration from Columbia Business School and master of liberal arts and sciences from Vanderbilt University.
