Welcome to ArtsFwd!

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:

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.

Karina Mangu-Ward is the former Director of Strategic Initiatives at EmcArts.
