About this Webinar
September 11, 2018
In 2017, Americans for the Arts conducted research to illuminate effective practices of emerging and veteran leaders in the field of arts education to explore strategies toward broadening and diversifying the leadership pipeline. The research was intended to inform the development of programming to assist in skill building for intergenerational dialogue, and to support the concept of cyclical mentorship among new and seasoned leaders in the arts education field. The research revealed five key themes, and this webinar will focus on the skills necessary for DEVELOPING A FACILITATOR’S ROLE.
- Explore the findings of ‘Cyclical Mentorship in Arts Education Leadership’ research;
- Illuminate existing tools and resources in the nonprofit, arts, and education sectors to hone skills in this area; and
