Announcing new services for individual arts organizations!

We are excited to announce a set of five new services geared towards individual organizations interested in developing their adaptive capacity.

For the last six years, EmcArts's programs have invited organizations to work with us at the national and local levels as members of larger cohorts. Due to the demand for our services from individual organizations, we now have new offerings that range from one-day retreats to extended Innovation Lab opportunities.
