For Arts Organizations:
Cultural leadership is essential for public spaces – it is a mindset that empowers arts professionals to be better leaders.
These leaders create a culture that is reflective of the communities they serve, celebrates good business ethics, values different perspectives, and raises awareness for challenges in the field. Introducing a mindset of openness to the unknown is an opportunity to make a difference.
Many musicians and artists are self-employed, and need to be able to market themselves effectively, negotiate contracts, and manage their finances in a constantly evolving industry. Cultural leadership is a valuable training service that can help navigate the complexities of the music and arts world, build strong relationships with colleagues, and help become an effective advocate for the arts and ones own career.
