The next phase of the journey for participants in our Executive Program in Arts & Culture Strategy has started! Participants have finished the core courses in the program: Arts & Culture Strategy and Arts & Culture Finance. Last week, they ventured on their custom paths, taking part in three electives over the next few months.
Electives in the program include Strategic Marketing, Fundraising, Social Media Strategies, Impact Management, Nonprofit Governance in Practice and Community & Collaboration. The elective courses are taught by leading professors and practitioners in the field, such as urban planning and comprehensive community revitalization expert Dr. Maria Rosario Jackson and Dr. Sherrie A. Madia, Executive Director of Communications, External Affairs at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, among others. They feature case studies from cultural institutions such as NOCCA and the 11th Street Bridge Park and grapple with the relevant issues of organizations such as The Denver Zoo.
Following the electives, participants will convene for a final time at the University of Pennsylvania in August. While in Philadelphia, participants will put the skills they’ve gained over the year to the test, hone their leadership skills and share their final program portfolios with their colleagues.
Participants in the program are leaders in arts and culture organizations all over the world. Learn more about members of the cohort »
