Hopes, Dreams, and Goals as Part of the Americans for the Arts Strategic Realignment Process

Americans for the Arts staff and board members, supported by Hope Nation and Arts Consulting Group, will share the steps we are taking to strategically realign the organization and plan for the future and will lead a fun, arts-centric collaborative process with attendees to look toward the future, map the hopes and dreams of the field, and celebrate our shared, ongoing transformation. Using the frames of Appreciative Inquiry, attendees will have the opportunity not only to weigh in on the future form and function of Americans for the Arts, but to share their own hopes, dreams, and goals for their organization and community.
