Artists On Creative Administration: A Workbook from the National Center for Choreography, edited by artist/cultural strategist Tonya Lockyer (Suquamish, WA), will be published by The University of Akron Press as part of their NCCAkron Series in Dance on September 24, 2024.

Artists and arts workers from across the U.S. reflect on how they challenge and create new approaches to the business of art. Through first-hand stories, the book pairs big topics with actionable tactics, addressing themes like agency, equity, activism, design thinking, process, leadership, collaboration, family, ethics, and care. Each chapter closes with experiments for the reader to try and adapt to their own thinking, work, and life.

Part documentation, part workbook, Shifting Cultural Power offers compelling insight for artist-activist leaders. Hope Mohr (San Francisco, CA) reflects on her ten years at the helm of the Bridge Project and the organization's shift into distributed leadership.


Originally focused on creating critical exchange within the Bay Area dance community, the Bridge Project evolved to become a home for national discourse around the performing arts and activism. Mohr describes a decade of artist-centered curation, the evolution of the operating context, and her decision to move control of the organization to distributed leadership.
