I’m off blogging in another part of the ether this week (although I will still be posting here, as well), with another iteration of the ”Hessenius Group,” a hosted conversation curated by arts policy wonk Barry Hessenius. This week, the topic is young professionals in nonprofit and public cultural institutions, and the questions in play are these:
How are the arts doing in terms of recruiting, training, mentoring, and involving younger people in their organizational structures? Are we developing the next generation of arts leaders? What grade would you give us in terms of our engaging those future leaders? Equipping them with the tools they will need? Including them the in the decision making processes and seating them at the tables at which we sit? Are we listening to them?
It’s a great group to attack this particularly important issue, including many young professionals who are providing their own personal perspectives. Should be fun. Take a look.
