Arts Leadership Management Academy
Enhancing St. Louis arts and cultural organizations through a strengths-based approach to capacity building and leadership.
The Arts and Education Council is pleased to announce the second year of the Arts Leadership and Management Academy (ALMA), a program in collaboration with the Network for Strong Communities and generously funded by Wells Fargo Advisors. The goal of the academy is to enhance St. Louis arts and cultural organizations through participation in a strengths-based approach to capacity building and leadership. The focus is on providing training and support for arts and cultural organizations through a series of affordable management workshops that increase skill level and effectiveness.
Additionally, the Academy is home to the Executive Director’s Roundtable, a professionally-led program targeted to executive directors of arts and cultural organizations. The focus of the roundtable program is to support executive directors with peer exchanges and resource sharing through professionally-facilitated peer learning. Research has proven this “peer learning cluster” is a low-cost method of offering training and technical assistance to nonprofits that could not afford the full services of a capacity building consultant.
ALMA workshops will be held in the Centene Center for Arts and Education. Individual workshops are $30. Click on the workshop titles to the right for more information or to enroll.
