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 #ArtsEdChat will foster discussion about EMBRACING THE CYCLE OF MENTORSHIP.
- 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
- Hear strong examples and cogent advice from emerging and veteran leaders in the arts education field.
