We introduced the participants in the Creative Community Fellows program in June. Over the past seven months Fellows have designed, tested and in some cases entirely reshaped their projects. They’ve worked with National Arts Strategies, their mentors and their communities to draft and refine their project pitches. As they near the final months of the program, now is the time to hear what grantmakers and leaders in the field have to say. Throughout the month of January, Fellows have been participating in review sessions, sharing their project ideas with leading national funders and creative placemaking practitioners.

NAS is headed to the desert this week to host the Business of Arts and Culture team seminar, Finance. Teams from organizations in the Phoenix area and around the US will come together December 8-9 for this interactive seminar led by NAS faculty, Dr. Greg Reilly. Attending teams will craft financial strategies that support their mission and organizational achievement, identify critical revenue, cost and risk factors that are driving overall financial performance and use financial numbers to predict effects on both mission and organizational health.
On November 24-26, 2014, NAS partnered with the United States Consulate Sao Paulo and SESC Sao Paulo to present a three-day program in Sao Paulo, Brazil for senior cultural leaders from around Brazil. The program focused on strategy and strategic innovation and was led by NAS faculty Dr. Violina Rindova and Dr. Robert Wiltbank. They also led a half-day session for emerging leaders from across Brazil. Approximately 110 leaders participated between both groups.
Applications are now available for two Business of Arts + Culture team seminars, Finance and Extending Your Reach.

We are pleased to announce the latest class of exceptional leaders in The Chief Executive Program: Community and Culture. These 50 executives will work with National Arts Strategies and each other over the next year to address their biggest challenges and lead change throughout the arts and culture sector. We received applications from leaders in 32 states and 13 different countries and were astounded by the level and diversity of community work these leaders are undertaking. This is the third class of The Chief Executive Program. It has evolved from the experience of the past two classes and discussions with arts and culture leaders around the world. National Arts Strategies is continuing the program with a focus on leaders of organizations where community is at the heart of the mission.
