What is something you’ve learned in the Mike Curb MA in Creative Enterprise and Cultural Leadership program that will shape your future work?

I have learned how many possibilities exist for creative work and the importance of highlighting process as much as outcomes and deliverables. I have been made much more aware of how important it is to illuminate the work that happens “behind the curtain” in determining a project’s success and impacts.
