New from Wallace: “Navigating Uncertain Times” webinar on how to use scenario planning amid change

Posted on: January 26, 2021

Witnessing the dramatic changes brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic and the national conversation on racial justice, among other factors, the Wallace Foundation commissioned AEA Consulting to create a scenario-planning toolkit to help arts and culture organizations deal with a “new normal” featuring few certainties. Daniel Payne and Natalia Vartapetova, members of the AEA Consulting team that created the toolkit, will present “Navigating Uncertain Times,” a scenario-planning “how to” webinar for League of American Orchestras members on January 27 at 3:00pm ET. They will introduce the concepts behind scenario planning, discuss how AEA Consulting created the tools, highlight trends that may affect orchestras and music creation in each of the toolkit’s four scenarios, and discuss how organizations use the toolkit to extend planning horizons and imagine new possibilities. The webinar will conclude with a question-and-answer session.

“Navigating Uncertain Times” takes place on Wednesday, January 27, 3:00pm Eastern/12:00pm Pacific; a recording will be available after the live event. Learn more and register here. Questions? Contact League Member Services at
