Boardway Bound is Back!

Boardway Bound is ArtsWave's board training and matching program that builds a pipeline of qualified, diverse board members for the arts sector, with our next Boardway Bound program series set for the Fall of 2023!

Boardway Bound provides interactive content and conversations with leaders from the Cincinnati region’s arts community. Each session explores real-life issues confronting arts boards and provides time for networking (sponsored by Thompson Hine) and team building. The curriculum includes a combination of five class sessions and carefully chosen articles, thought pieces, videos and sample board materials, as well as, a sixth session featuring our famous arts board speed dating!

The next Boardway Bound Session will be in Fall 2023. Please check back in March 2023 for application materials.
