   Nurturing California’s Next Generation Arts and Cultural Leaders (731Kb)

This study was commissioned by the Center for Cultural Innovation (CCI) as part of a large-scale Next Generation Arts Leadership Initiative funded by The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and The James Irvine Foundation that aspires to strengthen and retain a new generation of administrative talent in California’s nonprofit arts field. It addresses nonprofit arts leaders’ desire to know more about their younger colleagues and their experiences as professionals, board members, and volunteers.

The study reveals new data about the employment characteristics, career aspirations and needs, and other factors that may prevent emerging arts leaders from staying in California’s nonprofit arts field. More than 1,300 arts administrators in California between the ages of 18 and 35 were surveyed for the report which is part of a larger initiative, supported by The James Irvine Foundation and The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, and administered by CCI, to better prepare and retain emerging arts professionals for future leadership positions in the arts.
