Custom Programs

We develop custom programs in partnership with funders, agencies, membership organizations or large arts or cultural institutions.

We work with you and your community to design a curriculum that addresses your specific needs. Custom programs allow you to define the length and timing of your program, the topics and the services to meet your specific goals.

Your program can take advantage of any of the NAS team seminars, our facilitation and consulting services and custom events designed specifically for your cohort. This coordinated series of team seminars and services will help participants:

  • Build leadership expertise
  • Develop new initiatives for their work
  • Develop strong connections to each other
  • Increase the effectiveness of conversations within organizations and across the community

If you would like to sponsor or coordinate a custom program, please contact us so we can explore the best approach for your community.
