Elizabeth Long Lingo, Assessing the Performing Arts Field’s Capacity for Collective Action
In 2008, the National Performing Arts Convention embarked on an ambitious goal: to bring together over 3700 professionals arts leaders across performing arts disciplines to learn from each other, identify common goals, and advance a field-wide agenda.
Several questions faced leaders as they debated and dialogued at the Convention: Was collective action possible in the often fragmented and competitive performing arts field? What were the opportunities for action? What constraints needed to be addressed now, and in the future?
The Curb Center report, 2008 National Performing Arts Convention: Assessing the Field’s Capacity for Collective Action, presents findings from research conducted around the 2008 NPAC convention.
