Leading Change

Much of our work introduces frameworks meant to help arts leaders improve their organizations. Putting those frameworks into action requires change, but how does one lead change in an organization? In 2010 National Arts Strategies developed this online video catalog of arts leaders talking about just that. These video “snapshots” from arts and culture leaders reflect the wisdom of a broad and diverse field. Browse the videos below or click on a linked word or phrase to the right to explore themes.
