Informational Session on Baltimore's Arts and Cultural Institutions, with Michael Kaiser
Please join the Baltimore Community Foundation and Maryland Philanthropy Network with special guest Michael Kaiser, Chairman of the DeVos Institute of Arts Management at the University of Maryland for an online discussion about the state of arts and cultural institutions in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In 2001, Mr. Kaiser created the Kennedy Center Arts Management Institute, renamed the DeVos Institute of Arts Management in May 2010 to provide advanced training for arts administrators and to provide consulting support. Since its inception, the DeVos Institute has advised thousands of individuals, organizations, governments, and foundations throughout the United States and in more than 80 countries on six continents. The Institute’s programs include capacity building programs which have served more than 800 organizations in cities across the United States, regional and national initiatives which focus on board development, nine-month and summer fellowships for both American and foreign arts leaders as well as internships and other personalized training tailored to a variety of arts organizations around the world. The Institute moved to the University of Maryland in 2014.
