“Thanks to Aurora’s leadership, we all came away feeling very optimistic about our collective future.”
Arts Midwest is one of six nonprofit regional arts organizations in the US. They serve nine states in the Midwest and are known nationally and internationally for their work. During this year-long project, Aurora conducted an environmental scan with multiple groups of key stakeholders, facilitated a two-day strategic planning retreat with all board and staff, and facilitated action planning with staff.
From the client
“Arts Midwest worked with Aurora Consulting on an extensive strategic planning process, culminating with a two-day retreat for our full Board and staff in 2016. At the retreat, Al and Julia facilitated incredible conversation and engaged all 40+ people in a variety of exercises that helped us examine our vision and strategic direction. Thanks to their leadership, we all came away feeling very optimistic about our collective future. And additional follow-up with Al leading a staff action planning meeting ensured we will be able to move forward with implementing our vision.” Susan Chandler, Vice President, Arts Midwest
