Who We Are

Who We Are

Urban Arts Leadership (UAL) is an example of change in action. A program of the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance (GBCA), UAL is a fellowship program designed to increase diversity in the management of cultural and artistic organizations by building a pipeline for high achieving emerging leaders, focusing on those of color.

UAL offers professional development and network building opportunities to develop and empower tomorrow's leaders. UAL Fellows engage in a rigorous training program and are matched with host organizations where they contribute to the organization's culture, and additionally, manage projects that are core to the thrust of the organization.

The development of UAL has been guided by community input and the participation of more than 30 administrators from partnering cultural organizations. It is an immediate response to the needs of early career professionals and is meant to strengthen the cultural field.
