Melissa Dibble, Managing Director of EmcArts, will talk about Cleveland’s exciting Engaging the Future program that has been part of a number of CAEC members’ organizational work for the last two years.
During this time their organizations have come together frequently to contemplate changes in the cultural landscape, evolving tastes and interests, and how best to use new technologies. In the process they have been looking at the way educational experiences fit into the overall picture. The three-year program to help organizations reach new and different participants in the Cleveland region has been fully supported by The Cleveland Foundation.
In this CAEC session with Melissa, participants will engage in the concepts and frameworks of innovative and adaptive change that are part of EmcArts’ work in the Engaging the Arts program.
At EmcArts, Melissa cultivates flexibility and maintains a non-hierarchical, interactive environment where a creative team can flourish. As Managing Director, she is at the center of everything EmcArts does. A company builder who likes asking questions, Melissa is happiest when she can “hear about an idea, improvise around it, and build a structure to support it.” After she graduated from Boston University in 1990 with a degree in flute performance, Melissa spearheaded community programs at the Pittsburgh Symphony and the St. Louis Symphony. Her fascination with process goes beyond her work and she loves to travel (without a road map).
As educators, we are always looking at innovative ways to engage our audiences and learners.
