Call for Submissions: A Conversation on Failure

failure

We are undertaking an exploration of a topic that tends to get glossed over in our field… failure. We’re gathering a range of opinions and experiences from inside and outside the field on failure to share widely this March on Field Notes  in order to create an archive of experiences and a dialogue on the many forms of failure.

We’re accepting submissions from anyone interested in participating in this conversation. We simply ask that you give some thought to the questions below, chose one and write a 300- to 500-word response:

  • How do you define failure?
  • What role do expectations play in having failed?
  • Do you feel supported to fail in your job? Why or why not?
  • Tell us about the ways you motivate yourself after you’ve failed. What gets you centered and back up again?
  • How have your thoughts about failure changed throughout your career?

 
Submissions will be accepted through February 24, 2015 and finalists will be featured on our ArtsJournal blog, Field Notes throughout March.

Please send submissions to Taylor Craig, tcraig@artstrategies.org. Selected submissions may be edited for length and clarity. Feel free to contact Taylor with any questions you have regarding this call.

 

Call for Submissions: A Conversation on Career Plans

SLIDE_Call_SubmissionsHow do you craft a career plan? Why is it important to have a career plan? How do you identify your gaps in learning? How do you begin to fill those gaps?

We’re exploring all these questions and more in a conversation on Field Notes this October and we want to hear from you! We aim to host a field-wide conversation on how to craft a career plan in order to highlight the range of experiences and bring to light the array of tools that can be helpful to staff, colleagues and ourselves.

We’ve all been or are currently in some part of the career plan journey. Either you are a long-time CEO of an established organization with a unique story of how you got there or you’re a new graduate with a few years of experience trying to figure out what’s the next step. We want to hear from you – all of you.

We’re accepting submissions from anyone interested in writing a 200-300 word piece about this topic in our field. Submissions will be accepted through September 30, 2015 COB and featured on our Arts Journal blog, Field Notes throughout October 2015.

Please share this call with those in your network and encourage your colleagues to get involved in this conversation.

Please send submissions to Taylor Craig, tcraig@artstrategies.org. Selected submissions may be edited for length and clarity. Feel free to contact Taylor with any questions you have regarding this call.
