With the nonprofit arts sector in crisis, what can we learn about organizational health from high-performing and turnaround arts organizations? We will explore that question in part two of a series of virtual conversations, Reimagining the Future of the Arts, on Thursday, November 5 at 1 p.m. ET.
SMU DataArts Director Zannie Voss, Ph.D., will share key findings from The Alchemy of High-Performing Arts Organizations. Using a technique borrowed from the business world, the research offers analysis and insights into approaches adopted by especially healthy arts institutions – and other organizations that were in distress but managed to turn things around.
Voss will then talk with a few of the more than 20 arts leaders who took part in her ongoing research: Kim Noltemy, president and CEO of the Dallas Symphony Association, Michael Bateman, managing director of the Pasadena-based theater company A Noise Within, and Zenetta S. Drew, executive director of Dallas Black Dance Theatre. Their approaches to achieving relevance and resilience are being tested anew by the COVID-19 pandemic, economic pressures and the urgency of the racial justice movement. Your questions will be an important part of this timely conversation.
