The Art of Adaptation: New tools, new ideas & tested practices

The Oregon Arts Commission’s annual Arts Summit addresses the question:  “How do - and can - organizations adapt?” Nonprofit arts organizations everywhere face new competitive forces, new opportunities for partnership and collaboration, changing demographics and community needs, and different funding paradigms.  

The challenges and opportunities of this time are legion: staying strong and effective while simultaneously transforming your business model is a real balancing act.

Attendees of the Arts Summit’s presentations, workshops, networking and discussions will explore new ideas, cutting edge research, specific lessons learned, and nuts and bolts examples from the field.  The presenters and attendees will be co-learners throughout the day, as the Summit is designed for interchange and interaction between experts and practitioners.

Three themes will focus the day:
  1. What are disruptive innovations, and how they lead to organizational adaptation.  Think:  the first subscription campaign in the 1960s. Think:  social media. Both were disruptive innovations!
  2. Teams and innovation:  How effective teams (including nonprofit staff and Board teams) work together, learn together and innovate. 
  3. Evolving your value proposition: Understanding your value drives effective innovation and adaptation. How and why you should continually assess your organization’s value to the community, customers and donors you serve.  
We expect 300 arts leaders – executive directors and their leading staff members, board members, arts funders and vital arts advocates – to join for the Summit.  We will extend the Summit reach and dialogue with web-based interchange.
