What is the Urban Arts Leadership Program?

The Program will provide information, training, and help participants develop new and expanded networks. It is open to all participants with a particular focus on serving emerging leaders of color.

UALP is a program of the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance. The development of UALP has been guided by community input and the participation of more than 30 administrators from partnering arts organizations. The UALP Professional Development Intensives are an immediate response to the needs of emerging arts professionals in Baltimore.
