Strategic Restructuring for Arts and Culture Organizations

Posted by on March 30, 2009

Workshop offers advice to arts organizations on ‘strategic restructuring’

The Nonprofit Finance Fund will offer the third installment of its Managing in Turbulent Times series with a workshop on Strategic Restructuring for Arts and Culture Organizations on Tuesday, April 14th from 9am to 4pm.  The event will take place at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania at 1300 Locust Street in Philadelphia.

The workshop features presentations by Jo De Bolt of La Piana Associates and the Chief Cultural Officer for Philadelphia, Gary Steuer, who will speak on the merger of Americans For the Arts and the Arts & Business Council.  The event is cosponsored by the Arts & Business Council, the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance, and the Philadelphia Cultural Management Initiative.

In the workshop, DeBolt will explain the different partnership options for nonprofits – such as mergers, joint ventures, and administrative consolidations, the reasons for considering these options, how to assess an organization’s readiness for restructuring, and what makes for successful partnerships.

The cost of the workshop is $75 for the first registrant from an organization.  Additional registrants from the same organization are $50 per person.
