Strengthening community engagement, inclusion and organizational health are not new concepts for nonprofit arts leaders around the country. But the global COVID-19 pandemic and recent national reckoning with racial justice and equity can make these issues seem more urgent than ever. Additionally, many organizations are struggling to stay afloat finacially, so that they will one day be able to open at full capacity again. 

To help explore these and other pressing issues, The Wallace Foundation has convened a new arts conversation series, Reimagining the Future of the Arts. The five-part series brings together leading experts in the field to facilitate wide-ranging conversations, each grounded in research commissioned or supported by Wallace. 

Replays of past converstations are catalogued above and shared along with other related resources. You can register for any and all of the upcoming sessions here. Each conversation will cover a new topic with different panelists. All conversations begin at 1:00 PM ET, and everything is free of charge.
