Finding Your Purpose as an Arts Leader


From interns to CEO’s, we all take part in building diverse, empowered teams and creating sustainable, successful organizations. Everyone can be a leader, regardless of their job title. 

How, as leaders, do we build enduring and stable arts organizations and create inclusive communities for the next generation of arts audiences? At the 2020 Emerging Arts Leaders Symposium, we gather current leaders in the arts and emerging arts managers together for discussions around important topics in the field.


We’ll hear leaders talk about their successes, failures and everything in between... because hindsight is 2020.
