Emerging Leaders Network

Americans for the Arts (AFTA)’s Emerging Leaders Network identifies and cultivates the next generation of arts leaders in America. It’s an ideal way for new leaders to share their interests with other arts professionals as they develop their skills and their commitment to the arts. The Emerging Leaders Network targets individuals who are:

  • 35 years or younger, or who have been in the field five years or less,
  • Undergraduate or graduate students,
  • Professionals who are transitioning into local arts administration from another sector.

Our local chapter, Emerging Arts Leaders of Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak region, was just formed in April 2018. To find out how you can get involved, please contact Britney Hines at For more information about the national program, visit the AFTA website
