Posted on: October 20, 2020

What will the future be like for nonprofit arts organizations? On Wednesday, October 21, the Wallace Foundation will launch “Reimagining the Future of the Arts,” a series of free webinars that brings together a diverse ​group of experts to facilitate conversations around some of the most pressing issues facing the arts sector today, grounded in research commissioned or supported by Wallace. Each session will be recorded and available for later view. Designed to be helpful to nonprofit arts practitioners from organizations of all sizes as well as policy makers, artists, and future leaders, the 60-minute interactive sessions will include insights from visual and performing arts leaders. The first session, on October 21 at 1:00 pm ET, will address the question “What do audiences expect from the arts and how can organizations respond?” Following a brief overview of research by Arthur Cohen of LaPlaca Cohen, a panel discussion moderated by Artnet critic Ben Davis will include Kate Maguire of the Berkshire Theatre Group; Lisa Richards Toney of the Association of Performing Arts Professionals; and Franklin Sirmans of the Pérez Art Museum​ in Miami. Registration is free, and webinars will be available on demand after the initial date. Register here.
