Leadership through Creative Evolution

November 13, 5-7pm
Honors College Commons 

Center for Arts Leadership Director Sixto Wagan looked at leadership and the artistic process, asking if “Leadership” is an art form. From the framework of Houston art scene and the national dialogue on the arts since the mid-90s, Wagan examined the evolution of leadership models in the non-profit arts field.  He touched on organizational life cycles, representation at policy tables and the continuing hybridization of the arts field.

Every year at the Creative Time Summit, the most innovative artists, activists, critics, writers, and curators come together in New York to engage with one another and a global audience about how they are attempting to change our world in unprecedented ways. Participants range from art world luminaries and rural community organizers to international activists.
