The Chief Executive Program: Community and Culture
This 1-year program serves an international group of 50 outstanding CEOs whose organizations work closely with communities on creative placemaking initiatives. Throughout the program, NAS helps leaders work individually and in groups to broaden their thinking about their environments and how to lead change. We support their efforts to bring new ideas to their organizations and communities. By the end of the experience, participants will have the ideas, tools and connections to collectively strengthen the cultural sector. They will join their colleagues from the first and second cohorts of The Chief Executive Program as a network of leaders and organizations positioned to introduce field-level change. Learn more »

The Chief Executive Program: Community and Culture participants will gather for the second time at the University of Michigan this May. This is where they will gain the tools, knowledge and context to lead change in their organizations and communities. Here, participants will learn how to manage a diverse set of partnerships, build negotiation skills, create an environment for innovation and effectively lead change not only in their organizations but throughout the community.
Around the world there are artists, activists, community organizers, administrators and entrepreneurs working as change-makers in their communities – using arts and culture as vehicles to drive physical and social transformations. We've built the Creative Community Fellows program for cultural entrepreneurs working in this space. We give them tools, training and access to a community of support. This combination will fuel their visions for community change, sparking new ideas and helping propel them into action. Learn more »
