Changes in today’s operating environment for the arts demand new thinking.
A shift in the fundamental assumptions about why your organization exists, what its business is, and how it relates to the world.
Innovation introduces to your organization alternative pathways of thinking and acting—ones that you’ve never previously explored.
Our programs support the development and implementation of mission-centered new strategies being pursued by the country’s leading professionally managed arts organizations. We offer services that range from directly incubating specific projects to community-wide learning programs that enable new thinking and build a culture of innovation across local arts communities.
Why is our approach different? Our work is based in tested theories of how innovation works, and how we’ve seen it best applied to an arts and cultural organizational setting. We believe every organization is unique in its capabilities to learn and change. In every engagement, we work with our partners to design programs that are carefully tailored to the organization’s needs. Because in addition to helping to achieve institutional goals, we believe we can expand the conditions for new ideas to advance, leaving a lasting impression on the organization and its community.
This work is achieved with persistence, creativity, and results. We know because we’ve seen it. We work with funders, cultural institutions and public agencies to help them realize new pathways to their missions.
