It is no surprise that there are extraordinary forces of change and evolution facing arts and cultural organizations. But what seems continually surprising to our clients and our colleagues is the way that traditional, reliable tools of our industry no longer work. Today, it is no longer sufficient for arts leaders, planners, funders, and policy makers to rethink their methods. It is necessary, we believe, to rethink success.
Going forward, success will reach beyond being sustainable. Organizations will need to secure access to resources, reinvest in themselves and create public value to become ‘vital,’ contributing community assets.
In our evolving initiative, Rethinking Success, we are reframing and revisiting our 25 years of service to arts and culture, and building new ideas and tools for cultural organizations to move forward. Over the course of 2014, you’ll find articles, insights, resources, and examples of how we are helping leaders rethink success, and what we are learning as we do. We invite you to join the conversation.
We’re excited to work closely with our clients and our colleagues to define this new era by Rethinking Success. We look forward to learning along with you, and we’ll find many ways to share and encourage your feedback. Join us!
