Business of Arts and Culture™ team seminars
When you need to build a new web site, design an
exhibit space, or even drive a capital campaign, you
can turn to consultants to drive the project. But
there are fundamental decisions — about your
programming, audiences, financial plans, staff —
that can never be handed off to an outsider. The team-centered
seminars in the Business of Arts and Culture™
give your team the time and new tools to create these
critical organizational answers.
Each team seminar is an intensive working session that helps your organization quickly make sense of
challenges and find new ideas. The series brings the best management teaching in the country directly
to the arts and culture field.
A unique experience
Each event is led by top management faculty from
the leading business and graduate programs in the
country. Using real cases from the arts and the for-profit
sector, framework-based analysis and discussion, and
immediate applied exercises for your team, you build
new organizational capabilities and jump-start your
most important initiatives.
We limit attendance to allow for more in-depth interaction with the faculty, and more time to network with your colleagues. These limits also mean that only a few organizations can participate in each presentation, so we encourage you to submit your application in a timely manner.
Seminar presentations are held in convenient travel
destinations with exciting local cultural resources.
Sites are selected across the country, and include
Miami, Chicago and Washington D.C.
