The Strategic National Arts Alumni Project (SNAAP) presents key highlights from the SNAAP focus group report - a synthesis of insights collected via conversations with faculty and administrators in fall 2021 to take stock of the information and data needs of post-secondary institutions providing training in arts, design, arts administration and related creative fields.

What can be learned from SNAAP’s field-wide conversations? What systems can be put in place to better support arts administration students and educators as they adapt new technology and respond to big changes in the field? Engage in a broad discussion around data and information needs germane to current and future arts administrators and educators about post-secondary artists and designers’ training and the future of artists and arts administration careers.
