Arts & Culture

Arts & Culture

Koya has extensive experience partnering with leading arts and cultural organizations, including museums, botanical gardens, schools of art and design, associations advancing the arts, and the funders that support this work.

Our internal experts understand the unique dynamics of this sector, from the need to increase diversity in leadership to changing audience demographics and a limited pool of qualified candidates for the ever-increasing number of leadership roles created by a generation of retiring executives. Our arts and cultural experts have experience working with institutions across the country and a highly relevant network of candidates who are equipped to lead through the challenges these organizations face today and into the future.
