My name is Hana Sharif and I am the Associate Director at Center Stage in Baltimore, MD.
Center Stage is part of EmcArts’ Innovation Labs for Performing Arts this year. We originally entered the Lab with a complex challenge of strategic integration of technology into our organizational mission and culture, but since then our complex challenge has changed considerably. We are now in the process of re-examining power, decision-making and cross-departmental collaboration on our team through the development and production of a new theatrical event. Our focus has shifted from integrating innovative technology to exploring organizational transformation, and re-examining how we create theater together.
My first Working Open post is a fun, interactive quiz that examines the different roles team members can take in an Innovation Lab.
