Exploring the Way Forward: A Webinar Series Helping AEF Leaders Consider Their Path For the Next Three Years


The Aspen Institute Artist-Endowed Foundations Initiative/AEFI recently held a series of five webinars designed to help AEF leaders assess the impact of the COVD-19 pandemic by better understanding the status and considerations of their key partner sectors looking forward. Webinars in the series focused on what these respective sectors’ leaders see in the next three years for:

  • Art museums
  • Art galleries and the art market
  • Higher education institutions educating artists and art scholars
  • Curators and curatorial practice
  • Artists and their communities

Each 90-minute webinar featured a moderated panel discussion among leaders in the respective field followed by Q&A with the audience of AEF leaders.

Registration invitations were sent separately for each session a week prior to the event. Participation was by non-transferrable invitation to AEF leaders.
