Welcome to ArtsFwd! This website is part of a new initiative by EmcArts to create a place for arts leaders to share learning about innovation strategies for arts and culture organizations. We invite you to:
- Browse Innovation Stories, featuring video and written profiles of innovation projects in audience engagement, programming, organizational structure and more from theaters, presenters, operas, and more.
- Listen to the monthly podcast, where we invite one or two leaders to talk with Richard Evans about their creative solutions to persistent challenges.
- Read the blog, where we stimulate discussion around pressing issues in the field.
- Contribute to the community by commenting on the blog or profiles and telling us about your innovative projects.
By sharing models of success, failure and everything in between, ArtsFwd provides a platform for innovators in the arts and related fields to share their insights from trying new programs and strategies. The goal is to harness collective wisdom, share stories, and impart skills that help arts and culture organizations maximize their effectiveness, impact their communities, and affect social change.
This site is only as vibrant and useful as you – the users – make it. We encourage you to watch, read, listen, comment, share your stories, and let me know what you want from this resource. Our door (virtual and actual) is always open, so please contact us with your questions, comments, or connections.
