Are you an Emerging Arts Leader? A Funder? An Emerging Leader Network wondering how you will sustain or grow your network? Maybe you’re an Executive Director concerned about the leadership development of the next generation?
Then you’ll want to tune into ARTSblog April 5-9.
ARTSblog is hosting a week-long national dialogue titled New Strategies to Support Next Generation Leaders from April 5-9. A broad selection of diverse leaders from across the country will blog about this theme—arising from a partnership between the Irvine and Hewlett Foundations to support Emerging Arts Leaders in California.
As arts administrators, we have all read reports and been involved in conversations about an impending generational shift. Questions often arise about the readiness of emerging arts leaders to take over for current executive leaders, as we discuss “leadership gaps” and the lack of affordable professional development available.
To respond to this conversation, Americans for the Arts and the Emerging Leaders Council will host a national dialogue on New Strategies to Support Next Generation Leadership on ARTSblog. The idea for this blog salon was developed out of a recent partnership between the Irvine and Hewlett Foundations to support Emerging Arts Leaders in California (See more about the Irvine/Hewlett partnership here).
This dialogue will leverage the voices of funders, Emerging Leader Network representatives, and leadership development advocates to discuss what is needed to sustain leadership growth, the skill sets that emerging leaders need to develop, and how funders are addressing the generational shift.
