In addition to being chosen to be a part of a highly competitive field of applicants, King was also a scholarship recipient. Being a part of this program is a commitment to his career and future in the arts and culture sector. The selection committee reviewed his application and took special care to choose individuals of differing experience, backgrounds and disciplines to create a unique network of individuals that will aide in the growth of the cohort.
Established in 2015, the Executive Program in Arts & Culture Strategy is a partnership between NAS and the University of Pennsylvania to provide an actionable and skills-based curriculum in a blended environment of online learning and in-person convenings at the University of Pennsylvania. Upon completion, students are awarded a certificate in cultural leadership recognizing their advanced studies in arts administration.
From Burlington to Hong Kong, the class of 2019 will spend the next eight months learning from University of Pennsylvania faculty and experienced practitioners in courses on strategy, finance, management, fundraising, social media, evaluation and more. These leaders are driven to advance their work in the arts and culture field by strengthening their leadership capacities and expanding their knowledge of management tools.
