Event: Business Unusual: A Creative Conversation about Organizational Change
When: Thursday, October 25, 2012, 7:00pm-9:00pm
Where: EmcArts Offices at 127 W 122nd St New York, NY 10027
RSVP: On Eventbrite
Organizational change is a real challenge, but it’s essential, given the radical new demands that face arts organizations today.
The conversation is called ‘Business Unusual’ because we’ll be focusing on change that goes beyond improving business-as-usual. You’ll get the inside scoop on change initiatives that test out truly unconventional strategies, require a deep questioning of assumptions, and achieve surprising results.
Meghan McDermott from Global Action Project, April Lee from DIA: Beacon, and others will give short, dynamic presentations about how change works in their organizations and then we’ll discuss the successful ingredients to creating change and how frameworks can facilitate.
The conversation is open to anyone with an interest in change, innovation, adaptive capacities, and what it takes to make organizations thrive, including: practitioners, service providers, policy makers, academics, activists, and students.
EmcArts / ArtsFwd Team:
The Conversation will be hosted by Karina Mangu-Ward (Director of Activating Innovation), Liz Dreyer (Manager of National Programs), Jonas Cartano (Director of Community Initiatives), and Piama Habibullah (Communications Manager & Online Producer).
