The program is intended to strengthen leadership capacity, by creating networks, tools, bridges, and the space in the arts sector for exchanging different perspectives and approaches. The TAC Leaders Lab aims to support individual leaders as they develop collaborative solutions to complex challenges. Finally, the program is designed to invigorate and inspire one of Toronto’s most vital assets – arts leaders – and to ensure their future capacity to drive the health and success of the sector and the city as a whole.
This program has been created by TAC and Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity to enhance leadership capacity in Toronto’s arts and culture sectors.

The program focuses on power/influence, resilience/self-care, systems/networks, and community/civic engagement.
