Congratulations to the 2016 Emerging Leaders Boot Camp Participants!

NYFA’s intensive professional-development program for arts administrators turns three.

NYFA’s Emerging Leaders Boot Camp is a FREE leadership development program for arts administrators. The year-long schedule includes five full-day intensives, check-ins and individual consultations, and a two-day final session.

After careful consideration of an impressive and competitive field of over 100 applicants, New York Foundation for the Arts is pleased to announce the participants for the 2016 Emerging Leaders Boot Camp program.

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.

Now in its third incarnation, the program also includes an alumni component to support ongoing leadership development in the arts community.
