Announcing | 2018 Emerging Leaders Boot Camp Participants
Meet the newest class of participants in NYFA’s intensive professional development program for arts administrators.
NYFA’s Emerging Leaders Boot Camp, now celebrating its fourth year, is a free leadership development program for arts administrators. The program structure includes a five-day intensive with a rigorous blend of presentations, formal lectures, individual leadership assessment, and break-out groups. Additionally, the nine-month program includes half-day check-ins, an alumni mixer, and a two-day final session.
NYFA firmly believes that through this program, we make an investment in the cultural infrastructure that will ultimately benefit the entire field, building stronger connections and shared knowledge between artists and arts administrators.
After careful consideration, New York Foundation for the Arts is pleased to announce the participants for the 2018 Emerging Leaders Boot Camp program.
