Our Story
Founded 20 years ago, EmcArts has evolved in three phases that resemble the stages of innovation we see in cultural organizations. In 1999, Richard Evans and John McCann founded Emc.Arts LLC as a consulting firm focused on organizational change. In 2005 we reincorporated as a nonprofit with the aim of systematizing innovation and adaptive change in the arts and culture field. In 2014, EmcArts turned its attention to the social sector, creating the Community Innovation Labs to advance innovative responses to community challenges through the arts.
