An Arts Consultation Roundtable from Shunpike + Seattle University
Calling all arts groups, collaborators, nonprofit professionals and leaders!
Shunpike and Seattle University are co-hosting a round-table, scramble-style event that gives you an all-access pass to at least 4 different arts business and leadership advisors. We'll have 4 stations to visit, each staffed by an MFA Arts Leadership Alum or Director and each honed in on a different topic.
Come with your questions and conversation starters on: Program Development, Community Engagement, Grantwriting, Fundraising, Board and Organizational Management or whatever floats your boat (or knits your brow) these days!
Visit all four tables, or just one, and dive deep with your peers and advisors.
Access is first come first serve. If you've been thinking of scheduling a consultation but not sure what to focus on, this is a great way to test the waters.
This is a great space to meet other leaders in the field, have generative conversations, and answer your questions on multiple topics at once!
Who will be at the head of the tables, you ask? Here's a sampling:
Kevin Maifeld: Director of the MFA Arts Leadership program | Generalist Extraordinaire
Anne Shukla: Program Evaluation Consultant | Evaluation, grantwriting and reporting
Debra Webb: Grants Program Manager | Organizational development + community engagement
Terry Novak: Professional Photographer | Nonprofit Arts Advocacy + Education
Shunpike's Arts Business Clinic services provide direct advice, consultation and information resources to arts groups, leaders and projects in our region. We offer affordable consultations and a wealth of tools and resources online via our Member Portal. In order to better serve our arts sector with increasingly accessible and relevant technical service, peer networking and information resources, we are expanding the program and teaming up with local powerhouses like the MFA Alumni Association and 501 Commons.
The MFA Alumni Association is comprised of graduates from the Seattle University Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Arts Leadership degree program, which provides future arts leaders with an opportunity to merge the latest management practices of nonprofit organizations with the specific skills necessary to lead complex arts organizations. Coursework includes strategic planning, marketing, fundraising, budgeting/finance, advocacy, program development and community relations.
