Identifying areas of innovation and potential through programming includes an openness for experimentation and risk-taking on creative, social and institutional levels to provide impact for an organization and its audiences. How can we capture, as well as understand, cultural value through our programs? This talk will discuss several aspects to the larger framework of programming, including bringing order to choices, ways in which cultural engagement can be manifested and articulated, better practice for advancing planning, and systematic organization. Examples of dynamic partnerships will be featured, in addition to an interactive session to develop and implement potential programming.
