ABOUT THE SUCCESSION PLAN PROGRAM

Through its mentorship and peer network development program, The Succession Plan (TSP), CAPACOA reaches out to emerging and mid-career presenters, arts administrators, managers, agents and other industry professionals, seeking to strengthen core competencies, provide leadership development and equip them with the tools and resources necessary to be active participants in the development of arts and culture in their community.

The Succession Plan (TSP) is a mentorship and peer network development program for emerging and mid-career presenters and other performing arts professionals. The program seeks to strengthen core competencies, provide leadership development and equip participants with the tools and resources necessary to be active participants in the development of arts and culture in their community.

The TSP comprises three components embedded in Festival 506:

  • One-on-one mentorship with leaders from the national performing arts community;
  • Opportunities to network with peers in small and in larger groups to discuss the new realities of working in the arts;
  • Access to showcases or performances and to other value-adding programming via the integration of the program with a host presenters’ conference or arts festival.

The Succession Plan is an opportunity for emerging arts leaders from across the country and artistic disciplines to engage with a national network of peers – a vehicle for exchange and learning, enabling anyone to access the expertise that exists in the CAPACOA community.

To date, we have delivered successful TSP programs at 27+ conferences and events over more than five years. The program has benefited more than 100 arts professionals (mentors and mentees) who continue to use TSP tools and networks to further develop their cultural careers.
