We are all working with scarce resources but there is one critical resource that exists in abundance throughout our field — knowledge. Every leader, in every community, has valuable experience and insights to share. The NAS Exchange is our experiment in providing ongoing space and support for cultural leaders to connect, converse and celebrate on a meaningful level.

NAS Community Resources

Over the years, NAS has collected knowledge shared by arts professionals, artists, CEOs, entrepreneurs, board members, volunteers, and funders from around the world so that others in our sector may use, spread, and expand upon powerful ideas.
