About the Program

The Urban Arts Leadership Program (UALP) is a program of the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance (GBCA) and was designed to increase the participation of groups that have been historically underrepresented, particularly those of color, in the management of cultural and artistic organizations.

UALP is a pipeline for high achieving young leaders (college seniors or recent graduates) who have demonstrated a strong commitment to this goal. The Program offers professional development, networking opportunities, and paid Fellowship placements to aspiring arts administrators. Equally important, UALP offers Fellowship Host organizations tools and training that support institutional changes that encourage greater equity and inclusion.

The development of UALP 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.

The Urban Arts Leadership Program (UALP) seeks to identify ten exceptional rising leaders who aspire to leadership positions at arts and cultural organizations in Maryland. The Program will provide workshops, mentoring sessions, talks, discussions, as well as a six (6) month project placement at a partnering organization, helping Fellows to develop new and expanded skills and networks.
