What will the future be like for nonprofit arts organizations? Strengthening community engagement, inclusion, and organizational health have long been on the minds of nonprofit arts leaders around the country. The global COVID-19 pandemic and the national conversation about racial justice and equity make such questions even more urgent.
To help explore these questions, The Wallace Foundation has created an arts webinar series, "Reimagining the Future of the Arts." The series brings together a diverse set of leading experts in the field to facilitate conversations around some of the most pressing issues facing the arts sector today, grounded in research commissioned or supported by Wallace. We hope these discussions, which are free of charge, will inspire new ideas and innovative approaches for the months and years ahead.
The third session will focus on how organizations can plan for the future utilizing the recently released Scenario Planning Tool developed by AEA Consulting. Following a presentation of the research by AEA Consulting Managing Principal Daniel Payne will be a discussion moderated by Marc Scorca, CEO & President of OPERA America; along with Elizabeth Merritt, American Alliance of Museums Vice President for Strategic Foresight and Founding Director of the Center for the Future of Museums; Kristina Scott-Neman, President of BRIC, and Stephanie Ybarra, Artistic Director of Baltimore Center Stage. Your questions will be an important part of this timely conversation.
