Arts Leadership: A View from Brooklyn with BAM’s Joseph V. Melillo

This is a past event.

With the generosity of the Copyright Agency’s Cultural Fund, SAMAG presents a unique opportunity to hear internationally renown arts leader Joseph V Melillo, Executive Producer at Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), share his insights from a thirty year career as a leader in the arts. Under Melillo’s guidance and vision BAM has been transformed from a single site local music academy to a performing arts complex at the vanguard of the Brooklyn Arts Renaissance and the forefront of innovation in the arts and audience engagement around the world.

Ann Mossop, Head of Programs, Sydney Opera House will lead an in-conversation session with Joe to discover how the man widely credited with having ‘written the book’ on audience engagement, respected for creating a destination arts program that still supports emerging art forms and celebrated for his vision and leadership, views leadership in the arts.
