Welcome the Executive Program in Arts & Culture Strategy Class of 2018

By NAS     Nov 15, 2017

National Arts Strategies (NAS) welcomes 95 arts leaders into the Executive Program in Arts & Culture Strategy class of 2018. With a record number of 150 applicants, this year we are welcoming the largest class to date representing 4 countries and 26 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.

The Executive Program in Arts & Culture Strategy is a partnership between NAS and the University of Pennsylvania that provides a certificate in cultural leadership through an actionable and skills-based curriculum.

From Las Vegas to Mombasa, the leaders joining the class of 2018 are striving to advance the arts and culture field and their work in it. They will learn alongside each other, University of Pennsylvania faculty and experienced practitioners over the next eight months to strengthen their leadership capacity and grow their knowledge of management in the arts and culture field. We can’t wait to see what they accomplish. Join us in giving them a warm welcome and follow their journey at #ExecProgramArts.
