Urban Arts Leadership Program Information Session
Urban Arts Leadership was designed to increase the participation of groups that have been historically underrepresented, particularly those of color, in the management of cultural and artistic organizations. Its purpose is to connect a talented and diverse pool of emerging leaders with arts organizations, arts service organizations and arts-driven businesses that are committed to racial equity and inclusion.
The program is a PAID part-time/ 10-month commitment from September to June. There is 4-months of intensive training after which fellows are matched with host organizations to collaborate on a 6-month project. While UAL doesn't guarantee job placement, some hosts do retain fellows. Sample hosts organizations have included: Baltimore Museum of Arts, Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center, Maryland State Arts Council, The Center Stage and the Baltimore Creatives Acceleration Network.
The development of UAL has been guided by community input and the participation of more than 30 administrators from partnering cultural organizations. It is an immediate response to the needs of early career professionals and is meant to strengthen the cultural field.
