NEWS: Registration for the 2013 Local Arts Classroom

Americans for the Arts officially launches and opens registration for the 2013 Local Arts Classroom, back by popular demand!  This five-month virtual leadership development series, running January through May 2013, provides an opportunity for emerging local arts leaders to master foundational concepts and build skills through exposure to current practice in the core areas of local arts development.  The program is designed to serve arts professionals with less than 10 years of experience in the arts field, including current undergraduate or graduate students and those who are transitioning into the field from another sector. 

Selected participants will attend seven 90-minute webinars and seven 60-minute post-webinar discussion calls, each offering opportunities to connect with field leaders.  Participants will also have opportunities to regularly connect with peers around the country, and have access to a Classroom participant only web portal that will include resources to further study in each subject. 

Topics we will cover include:

·         Cultural and Community Planning:  Building a Common Agenda for Development
·         Space for Art:  Creating Spaces for Arts Production, Presentation, and Community Engagement
·         Advocacy:  Making the Case for Arts and Culture
·         Stewardship and Resource Development:  Raising Funds, Friends, and Allies
·         Activating Community Leadership:  Board and Staff Development
·         New in 2013Career Development:  Navigating Opportunities in the Local Arts Field

Participants in the 2013 Local Arts Classroom will be selected via a competitive application and panel process.  A maximum of 40 individuals will be accepted into the program.
