Camp Description:

The Ethical Leadership in the Arts Summer Program invites young women to engage with various art forms through the lense of ethics and leadership, with the guidance of expert artists and ethicists. This two-week program will partner with women artists who will share their experiences of navigating ethical issues within the artworld, finding their unique voice, and developing their craft. The visiting artists will also introduce participants to their art form and guide participants through creating their own original art using that particular art medium.

Program participants will explore their own identity and values through in-depth discussions around questions that naturally arise when engaging with art and the artistic process, such as: What role does a person’s identity have in their art and our viewing of their art? What does taking risks look like for artists, and when does this cross an ethical line? What does it mean to be an ethical leader? Where do leadership and art intersect? What is the power of art? How should artists use this power? What obligation, if any, do artists have to others, like their subjects, viewers, and the general public? How should we navigate tensions between the impact of the art and intention of the artist?

There will also be a field trip to New York City, where participants will visit art galleries and discuss ethical and leadership issues inspired by art. At the end of the program, participants will select one artwork to prepare for presentation that captures themselves as ethical leaders or explores the ethical and unethical dimensions of leadership.

As part of this program, participants can expect to:
* Explore the intersections between art and ethics
* Examine their personal identity and values
* Develop a robust understanding of ethical leadership and what it means to be a woman in the arts
* Experience different art media, with guidance from expert artists
* Engage in various artistic expressions that encourage positive risk taking
* Feel empowered as ethical leaders and artists
* Develop critical and creative thinking
* Enhance collaboration and communication skills
