Dayton, OH - January 23, 2019 | 9:00am - 5:00pm

On Wednesday, January 23, 2019, IABD and NAS (National Arts Strategies) together, will be presenting the “IABD LEARNING MAGNET” made possible through the support of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation’s, Fund for National Projects.

What is this?

This programming is specific to our Next Generation Leaders to support and offer continued strength and development for your organizations and artistry by investing in educational tools, cross-generational learning opportunities and leadership training. This year we will discuss artistic and executive leadership with focus on our dancers. In addition, a series of monthly webinars will take place where you will have year long access to online business classes through National Arts Strategies to assist you with the operations and management of your dance companies and individual businesses.

Who is it for?

Whether an established dance artist, mid-career or just beginning, this one-day workshop will examine the business and creative side of dance. All IABD members are welcome to join this session regardless of whether you are an independent artist and/or part of a company. Guess what? This program is FREE!

What will we be doing?

This inter-generational group of dance makers will come together and learn ways to deal with challenges such as financial management, fundraising, marketing and public relations, best hiring practices, strategic planning, and more. The workshop is structured with peer-to-peer learning opportunities. Lunch will be served.

About National Arts Strategies

NAS has a long history of working to make the arts and culture sector stronger and more dynamic.
Our initial focus (1983-2002) on financial capacity building was realized through a national network of stabilization programs. The legacy of this work includes a stronger focus on balance sheet strategy and asset building in arts and cultural organizations, the use of liquidity measurements as a metric for organizational health and the incorporation of capitalization initiatives as a priority in funder driven programs.

Our strategy expanded to help build overall leadership capacity beginning in 1996. Since then NAS has become the leader in education programs for the arts and culture field. We continue to grow and adapt to best meet the needs of the entire field—artists, grantmakers, cultural entrepreneurs, arts and culture professionals, board members, and executives.


The 2019 IABD Learning Magnet is FREE to all IABD members and registration is required. Those already registered for the full Annual International Conference and Festival are eligible to attend the Learning Magnet at no additional cost to your registration fee. If you are only attending the Learning Magnet, please have your IABD Membership Car available for entry. You will only be permitted to attend the IABD Learning Magnet activity on Wednesday at Marriott at University of Dayton.

All participants will receive a nominal participation/travel stipend for their involvement in the workshop.
