In the age of globalization, many artistic entrepreneurs, while having one eye firmly fixed on their home turf, boldly set their sights on the international arena to expand the reach and impact of their arts. But where to look and how to start? And who to turn to make the first move or expand your network?
There is perhaps no better strategic compass to help you sail through the uncharted territories than our special guest from the United States: international speaker Mary Lou Aleskie, Director of Hopkins Center for the Arts at Dartmouth College and Chair of the International Society for the Performing Arts (ISPA). Hear Ms Aleskie share her vast experiences and insights into how to build a tailored web of partners, improve leadership and arts entrepreneurship skills required to steward the expansion, and use these connections to achieve your artistic and career goals. Also, ISPA fellows will join us and open a constructive dialogue on expanding overseas network and capturing opportunities.
Dartmouth is one of the eight American Ivy League universities, among the oldest and most prestigious institutions of higher education in the US. It is situated in Hanover, New Hampshire in Northern New England.

About International Society for the Performing Arts (ISPA)
The International Society for the Performing Arts (ISPA) is a global network of more than 500 leaders in the performing arts with representation from more than 185 cities and all regions of the globe. ISPA members include facilities, performing arts organisations, artist managers, competitions, funders, consultants and other professionals working in the performing arts. Every year, ISPA holds two Congresses – one in New York and one in a different global city. Members come together with the shared goal of strengthening and developing the arts internationally. ISPA achieves this by building leadership ability, by recognising and discussing field-wide trends and new developments, and by deepening global exchange through the arts. The successful Global Fellowship Program provides access to ISPA's extensive international network of arts professionals to emerging and mid-career leaders from around the globe. Participants join the ISPA membership and attend the New York ISPA Congress where they engage in the development and exchange of ideas with leaders from some of the world's most significant arts organisations, increase their industry knowledge and resources through educational opportunities, and share their experience with their communities.
