Community Arts Development Program
The Community Arts Development Program’s (CADP) Community Arts Leadership is a yearlong capacity-building initiative designed to help arts leaders effectively run their small, community-based cultural organizations serving low- to moderate-income populations.
The program’s practical approach engages selected participants through interactive workshops, one-on-one technical assistance, and presentations from the field. The twelve-month curriculum focuses on three core capacity areas: board development, strategic planning, and financial management. Additional presentations and panels will address some of the critical challenges and prospects facing nonprofit cultural leaders.
As a result of their participation, groups will be expected to achieve measurable results such as a viable strategic plan, tools for developing a well-functioning and strategically recruited board, and a budgeting framework that supports fiscal responsibility and mission adherence.
Please check back in February 2014 for more information about the FY2015 Community Arts Leadership program.
The Department of Cultural Affairs’ CADP is supported by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Community Development Block Grant program.
