The Logan Arts Leadership Institute Launches New Phase

Interlochen Center for the Art’s virtual leadership initiative, the Logan Arts Leadership Institute, will resume this fall with its innovative curriculum for a cadre of new students. It will also unveil its second phase for returning students. The fall course opens September 27.

The Logan Arts Leadership Institute was launched last spring and introduced an online group of over 200 high school and undergraduate students to the nature of leadership today. A series of online webinars and live chats that connected prominent arts leaders from all generations to the students. Interlochen Arts Camp students also had the opportunity to experience the Logan Arts course through six in-person sessions this past summer.

Due to popular demand, Logan Arts is now offering a new session to address the individual needs and goals of returning students. The second phase will offer six modules that provide resources exploring specific arts leadership skills, such as communication, non-profit management and conflict resolution. These modules will be augmented with webinars, live chats and online forums where students can interact with and support their peers.

The Institute has also revamped its curriculum for new students based on the feedback received from its first class. It will feature new content and new guest speakers, as well as some familiar faces. Michael Thurber, Steve Hayden and Chris Gruits, executive director of Interlochen Presents, have been confirmed as speakers for the new session.

Students, parents, educators, and potential guest speakers can learn more about the Logan Arts Leadership Institute on Facebook and Twitter. New and returning students can register by accessing the “Sign Up” tab at

Interlochen recognizes the founding donor of this program, Kay Hardesty Logan, for her vision and generosity. Additional funding for the Logan Arts Leadership Institute is provided through a grant from the E.E. Ford Foundation.
