Event Details

Metcalf will host two separate workshops that will introduce concepts of innovation and adaptive change for arts organizations, provide an opportunity for initial exploration of adaptive work, and stimulate feedback on the usefulness of these appraoches for the needs of the participants and the sector as a whole. The sessions will also provide an overview of the work that EmcArts, a leading provider of innvoation services to the arts and culture sector across the United States, is undertaking in a variety of American communities. For an introduction to the concepts of EmcArts and adaptive change, click here.
The day has been designed with two independent sessions:
  •   an introductory session in the morning with a presentation of the ideas and a question and answer period; and
  •   a hands-on workshop in the afternoon that engages teams from a limited number of performing arts organizations around the adaptive challenges unique to their own company.
Please note that registration for each of these sessions will be handled separately.

Morning Session
During the morning session Richard Evans, President of EmcArts, will present and facilitate a conversation on the importance of addressing adaptive change through innovative strategies to create public value. The conversation will focus on adaptive challenges rather than technical ones, shifting our underlying assumptions, developing new organizational capacities that emphasize innovation and adaptive change, and what EmcArts has learned about innovation in the arts. Evans' presentation will be followed by a question and answer session for participants.
