The Arts Leadership Symposium is a full-day event, hosted by Seattle University’s MFA in Arts Leadership program. Arts leaders from across the Pacific Northwest will gather for an exciting day of provocative speakers, professional development workshops, and interdisciplinary exploration.  

The 2024 Symposium will take place at Seattle University on Saturday, March 2, 2024. 

The 2024 theme is Cultivating a Thriving Arts Ecosystem. With presentations from MFA students, alumni, and faculty, as well as regional arts leaders, we seek to imagine how we as arts leaders can cultivate a thriving arts ecosystem in Seattle and beyond. This conference is intended to address the practical aspects of the theme while also creating a communal space for exploring new approaches. 

For more information, please see the event program.
