Balancing Acts: Art, Community, and Leadership

The intersection of the creation and presentation of the arts, its role in our communities, and the transition to the next generation of arts leaders is indeed a balancing act. Global society is being shaped by many forces and this is having a fundamental impact on the arts sector. With this change, we also have opportunity not only to reflect the changing values of our broader society but indeed shape them. How will the next generation of leaders approach this evolution and further the arts as a catalyst of positive transformation?

Over 600 delegates from 53 countries participated in the New York 2018 ISPA Congress.
