Liza’s New Leadership Adventure

Liza Wade Green, Associate Director, NC State LIVELiza Wade Green, associate director of NC State LIVE, has been selected to join the third cohort of the Association of Performing Arts Professionals’ (APAP) Leadership Fellows Program (LFP).

Launched in 2015, and developed in partnership with the University of Southern California’s Arts Leadership Program, the LFP is a 20-month-long program for mid-career performing arts professionals.

“The Leadership Fellows Program examines core questions around content and scope of leadership development for the performing arts field. It highlights, supports and helps participants understand and define the many reaches of leadership and its capabilities through peer-to-peer mentoring and creating a community of support,” says Mario Garcia Durham, president and CEO of APAP.

APAP has been committed to leadership development in the changing ecology of the performing arts industry, providing avenues for members to expand and strengthen their leadership skills. Through this program, the fellows sharpen their sense of engagement with the arts presenting community and develop leadership skills.

Prior to joining the NC State LIVE staff in November 2016, Green was development manager and artist services associate with The Field, a nonprofit organization that provides fiscal sponsorship and professional and creative development services to performing and media artists in New York City. She earned an MFA in performance and interactive media arts from CUNY Brooklyn College, and is co-creator and producer of The Institute of Psychogeographic Adventure.

The Association of Performing Arts Professionals, based in Washington, D.C., is the national service, advocacy and membership organization dedicated to developing and supporting a robust performing arts presenting field and the professionals who work within it. Each January, APAP presents the annual APAP|NYC conference, the world’s leading forum and marketplace for the performing arts.
