Urban Arts Leadership Program


The Urban Arts Leadership Program (UALP) diversifies and strengthens administrative leadership in arts organizations by connecting emerging arts administrators to resources and professional development that will help position them as leaders. The Program will provide information, training, and help participants develop new and expanded networks. It is open to all participants with a particular focus on serving emerging leaders of color.

UALP is a program of the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance. The development of UALP has been guided by community input and the participation of more than 30 administrators from partnering arts organizations. The UALP Professional Development Intensives are an immediate response to the needs of emerging arts professionals in Baltimore.

March 14th and 15, 2014
& March 21 and 22, 2014

Ever wonder how to get in the door for an interview, navigate organizational politics, or help open doors to arts management jobs for others?

The Urban Arts Leadership Program (UALP) of the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance is offering Professional Development Intensives March 14 and 15th and March 21 and 22nd that include a range of topics of critical concern to aspiring arts administrators, particularly those of color. Participation is free, but space is limited.

As each session is designed to carry-over from the previous day, participants must attend the two consecutive days of the intensive they register for. For a fuller experience, participants may sign up for both weekend intensives. To take advantage of this opportunity, please email David D. Mitchell at the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance to reserve a space: dmitchell@baltimoreculture.org
