“Triangle Emerging Arts Leaders” Group Forming

Triangle ArtWorks is working with a Core Group of local arts leaders to create a Triangle Emerging Arts Leaders Group. The idea is to create a networking group of “young” arts administrators that will meet periodically for discussion and networking, with a goal of not only helping the Group’s members learn from each other and some discussion leaders, but also to facilitate collaboration between them and their organizations.

What is an Emerging Arts Leader?

This group is patterned, loosely, after the Emerging Leaders  program at Americans for the Arts, which limits their group membership this way: “The Emerging Leaders Network targets professionals who are 35 years of age or younger or who have less than five years of experience, but invites arts leaders from every age range to participate.” which is the definition that we will use for our Group.  There was a clear feeling among the Core Group that this should be only for arts administrators and not the general “arts community” so that the Group could tailor discussions to the issues facing the work of arts organizations specifically. (Got an idea for another Triangle-wide arts/design related networking group? ArtWorks is all about supporting regional networking, so talk to us!)

 

When is the first meeting?

The first meeting will take place on the “Fourth Friday” March 23rd at noon, at Shiki Sushi.  If you are a Emerging Arts Leader in the Triangle, come out to meet your peers, share ideas and have a great time with other current and future leaders of the cultural sector. Each gathering will have a discussion topic, and we will look to our Core Group and peers to facilitate conversations. The first meeting will be an informal meet and greet, and we’ll also have an open discussion about future topics, locations for gatherings, and what experiences members would like to get out of participating.

How can you participate?

If you fit the above definition of Triangle Emerging Arts Leader, send us an email and we will put you on the Group’s mailing list.  If you can come to the meeting on March 23rd, let us know so we can include you in the reservation!

See you there!
