Arts education leaders over the age of 18 who are currently working in any of the following sectors: government, nonprofit arts and education, schools, communities and homes, business or philanthropy. We are seeking individuals who can share their disposition, knowledge and skills to grow their leadership.
You will participate in a one-to-one interview with the co-investigator. The semi-structured interview is designed to ask open-ended questions in a casual atmosphere and encourage two-way communication. Interviewees can ask questions to the interviewer at any time for their clarification. The interview will take approximately 40 to 60 minutes.
This study uses snowball sampling to recruit the interviewees. Interview participants may forward research recruitment information to potential interviewees in their professional network. When potential interviewees complete the online consent form, the co-investigator will contact potential interviewees via the email that has been provided on their consent form.
Minimal risks will be anticipated in this study as a result of sharing personal experiences as an arts education leader. However, you may decide to stop at any time, and you will not face any consequences. If you experience any discomfort in participating in this study, you may terminate your participation. If you have decided that you would not want to have your results included in this study, you may inform the researcher and your results will be excluded.
While there will be no direct benefit to you in participating in this study, your participation will help researchers to learn more about the characteristics of arts education leaders. This information could be used to improve strategies to support future generations of arts education leaders.
