By NAS     Feb 25, 2016

Spring has arrived early this year at NAS, with many exciting events and announcements coming this March. To kick of this exciting month, the 2016 Executive Program in Arts & Culture Strategy cohort will come together for the first time in-person at the University of Pennsylvania this March 2-5.

Participants have been learning together online since the program began this January and will now have the opportunity to meet the teaching team and each other in-person at this event. During their time together, participants will join in interactive sessions on leadership styles, program design & innovation, negotiation and decision-making. Sessions will be led by Clinical Professor of Design and Innovation, Southern Methodist University, Gray Garmon and University of Pennsylvania faculty including, Senior Fellow, Center for Leadership and Change Management, The Wharton School, Meredith Myers Ph.D. and Professor of Social Policy, Faculty Director of the Center for High Impact Philanthropy and Founder and Faculty Director of the Center for Social Impact Strategy, Peter Frumkin Ph.D.

Friday, March 4 we will be joined by the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance’s President, Maud Lyon and Vice President of Marketing & Communications, John McInerney, to engage in a conversation about Future: Forward, a new initiative, to use strategic foresight in thinking about how their members and the sector can prepare for the future in the next ten years and beyond. On Saturday, March 5 the participants will head to Eastern State Penitentiary where they will take a tour inside the historic organization’s world and later apply their learning to their work in the program.

We can’t wait for this first gathering! You can follow the conversation on Twitter at #ExecProgramArts.
