Every year the Americans for the Arts Emerging Leaders Network offers a broad range of events. Most major Americans for the Arts convenings contain an emerging leader component, but the network also organizes separate events. These events include preconferences, receptions, and Creative Conversations, facilitating both professional and social interactions among emerging leaders. Our events facilitate peer support and the exchange of ideas among the next generation of arts leaders.
Every year during National Arts & Humanities Month in October, Americans for the Arts partners with emerging arts leaders nationwide to host Creative Conversations. Find out how to host a Creative Conversation in your community.
