Multicultural Arts Leadership Institute (MALI) 2013
During each program year, MALI will identify and train up to 15 program participants. Program activities will include but not be limited to:
• Regular training sessions lead by skilled practitioners and consultants. Participants will receive training to help them acquire the business skills they need to successfully lead an arts organization whether in the form of a traditionally structured nonprofit or in an alternative organizational structure. Participants will also receive training in practical skills, including facilitation of and participation in well-run meetings; effective and compelling presentation; personal and business planning and successful negotiation.
• Identifying and providing information resources not typically available to small and midsized cultural organizations and creative businesses. Although arts administrators, entrepreneurs and volunteer leaders are barraged with information, it is difficult to access skilled, seasoned practitioners for assistance, to find out about the practices that make groups and individuals successful over the long-term, and to determine what information is most relevant and helpful. MALI will address these needs by providing expert technical assistance; and mentoring from nationally and regionally recognized leaders in the arts and culture community.
• Onsite training/problem solving opportunities with prominent business, government and community institutions. Toward the middle of the program year, we will utilize skills developed in the program to do on site team problem solving around issues of import to the arts in the region. MALI will make every attempt to match participant skill sets with particular opportunities to maximize the benefits to all concerned. This activity may take place through a national conference or a visit to a community outside of the Silicon Valley. read more
