Upcoming ACI Training & Events:

September 19: Harold Buchwald Lecture for Arts and Cultural Management
Why We Do What We Do: The impact of arts and culture to business, the economy and your life.
As cultural leaders we are continually faced with explaining the value of the work we do to many stakeholders - our boards, government funders, sponsors and the public at large.  Howard Jang will present two critical studies that present a clear understanding of the value of the arts to the economy and to the community. These two studies will help cultural leaders understand how to frame the value of arts and culture for their stakeholders.
