EALS at AU presents the 14th Annual Emerging Arts Leaders Symposium

The Arts Management Pivot

Fostering Resiliency in the Arts


March 20 & 21, 2021


How have arts organizations responded to the ongoing pandemics plaguing our country, COVID-19, and the reckoning around systemic racism? So much has changed over the last year, and the effects will last for years to come. The 2021 Emerging Art Leaders Symposium will focus on how the arts community has pivoted during these unprecedented times. The event will explore the strategic planning and leadership necessary to navigate the arts through difficult times. As emerging arts leaders, it’s up to us to continue to move the field forward into the future. 

Join us at the 2021 Emerging Arts Leaders Symposium -- a virtual convocation of current arts managers and emerging arts leaders for two days of panels, workshops, and networking. We’ll hear leaders talk about their successes, failures, and everything in between...because hindsight is 2020.
