2023 ARTS LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE
This year’s Arts Leadership Institute will be held in person April 25-26, 2023. Featuring sessions designed to support your fundraising efforts, dynamic trainers will work with arts leaders, staff, boards, and volunteers of non-profit creative organizations over two days at the new Startup Sioux Falls building.
Join for learning and opportunities to network with your colleagues, along with helpful resources and follow-up cohorts to help implement what you have learned. Find more information on this year’s sessions below.

WHAT IS THE ARTS LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE?
Amazing arts and culture projects are happening all across South Dakota, but we are spread out and often isolated from our colleagues. With this program, we want to help support those who are doing the critical work of fostering their local creative communities.
The institute will take place regularly, providing multi-day deep dives into a changing set of topics of interest to many different types of arts organizations and their staff, volunteers, boards, and more. Equally important, they will provide time to gather with your colleagues to help strengthen the arts ecosystem across the state.
COURSE INFORMATION & SCHEDULE
There’s a fundraising project on the horizon…what happens now?
As non-profits, we all want to do work that has impact–but we need to fund this work. One avenue involves direct appeals. Whether this is your first time fundraising for a project, or you want to inject a new spark into your ongoing annual fund, learn more about ways to develop financial support for your important work.
Attendees will come away with a helpful workbook, as well as the tools to define your project and campaign budget, craft and tell its story, and how to make that first ask, creating a connection with purpose.
