A bright bunch with a diversity of interests and affiliations, the fellows will work over the next nine months to fulfill—and shape—EAP’s mission.
For the 2013/14 session, we’ve broken out four key areas of inquiry based on feedback from the network.
- open systems
- networked approaches
- regenerative practices
- research and development
Working in and across teams, the fellows will dig into these four topics to ask probing questions, produce a body of knowledge, and mine existing resources in the network to uncover information and make connections.
The fellows will also explore a rubric for arts leadership, identifying and sharing the best practices of four distinct types of leaders: connectors, content creators, team leaders, and visionaries.
We’re thrilled to welcome this ambitious, curious group and look forward to all they will accomplish.
