NYFA's Online Learning Initiative provides professional development workshops for artists, arts administrators, and arts professionals nationally and internationally through a webinar platform.

Creators in all disciplines, from the comfort of your home, studio, or anywhere with Internet access, can explore the fundamental principles of sustainability in the arts through NYFA's new Online Learning Initiative. As many of our professional development programs are focused on building community, these online sessions also provide virtual networking opportunities to registered participants.


      • Each session lasts for 90 minutes, including the lecture and Q&A.
      • Each session will be offered on the third Tuesday of each month from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM EST.*
      • Creatives from around the world can join workshops through our Anymeeting webinar platform or international call-in numbers.
      • Participants will have access to the presenters during the live sessions, and also to the program materials and recordings after the workshops as long as they register before the session starts.
      • Registrants will have access to the recordings for six months following the session.*

*Unless otherwise noted.

Navigating Office Politics

Tuesday, June 18, 2019, 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM EST.
Presented by Elena Chang, Direct of Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (ED&I), Theatre Communications Group (TCG).

There is no workplace without office politics. Water cooler conversations, favoritism, micromanagement, work friends—they’re all part of a larger structure that informs your day-to-day work experience. Learn how to navigate and use the organizational framework of your workplace to advance and excel in your career. Small changes and adjustments can have a large impact and can make everyone’s work day easier and more comfortable. Identify new ways of managing up or down and how to grow in organizations that might lack support, professional development, or HR best practices.
