ArtsBuild is seeking candidates for the 2018 Holmberg Arts Leadership Institute.

The eight-part series is “designed to fully engage participants in the arts community.”

During the program, guests will hear from keynote speakers and panelists, visit local cultural and educational institutions, engage in panel discussions with community leaders, and mingle with like-minded classmates.


The deadline for applicants is Aug. 17.

Launched in 2005, The Holmberg Arts Leadership Institute is offered annually by ArtsBuild in memory of longtime board member and arts advocate A. William Holmberg, Jr. A maximum of 30 people have the opportunity to participate in the program each year. Criteria for selection of participants will include the level of interest in the arts, background, relevant experience, and degree of commitment to volunteer for service with arts and cultural institutions.

Participation is open to residents of the Greater Chattanooga area who have demonstrated passionate support and advocacy for the arts and made a commitment to making a difference in the quality of life in the community.

Each participant will receive a copy of Daniel Pink’s book “A Whole New Mind.”
