The Arts and Leadership Member Community is open and inviting for all those engaged in or interested in learning more about the arts and leadership development. We hope to encourage and leverage the diversity of ideas, opinions, and experiences about the arts and leadership development.

We are global community of leadership researchers, developers, master artists, and practitioners passionate about aesthetics, arts, culture, creativity, design, equity, imagination, and innovation in leadership. We are committed to cutting edge research, practice, and leadership development methods to bring about the best leaders for the future.
