“We are no longer a manufacturing economy. We are a creative economy. Business leaders will tell you that they need a workforce that can think, problem solve, be creative. What better way than the arts to start exercising those muscles in children?”

President of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Michael M. Kaiser has built a career rehabilitating troubled performing arts organizations. He shares his lessons through such programs as Arts in Crisis and publications that include The Art of the Turn Around: Creating and Maintaining Healthy Arts Organizations.
