Wilson Selected for National Arts Leadership Program
MASSCreative Executive Director Matt Wilson was one of 50 leaders from around the world to be selected for the National Arts Strategies Chief Executive Program.
The leaders were chosen for their dedication to leading change in their organizations, communities, and in the cultural field.
Over the next year, Wilson will be supported in his work as MASSCreative’s executive director through the introduction of different approaches from outside their sector, a range of analytical frameworks and an international, cross-disciplinary network of allies and collaborators. He will travel to Harvard Business School, the University of Michigan, Ross School of Business, and the Sundance Institute in Utah where he’ll be introduced to tools he can use year after year to help put MASSCreative’s program ideas into action. Over the past three years, the Chief Executive Program has trained nearly 200 arts leaders.
The program’s director, Sunny Widmann stated, “We were overwhelmed by both the quality and quantity of applications to this fourth and final cycle of the Chief Executive Program. We’re thrilled to share knowledge with and learn from this incredible group of change agents in the cultural sector.”
