Creative Communities need new models for financial support and audience / participant development.  At the same time, businesses, governments and nonprofits need creative solutions for developing financial support and assets.

Cross-disciplinary courses and programs allow ideas and prototypes to come from all sectors.  Leah creates these connections and is an advisor to the Office of Stanford University's Vice President for the Arts, CultureBank and the Center for Cultural Innovation, which partnered with the NEA on the study Creativity Connects.

Leah advises universities, cities, nonprofit organizations and creativity-based startups on establishing innovative models for growth and sustainability.
