    New Name, Renewed Focus

Artists and artist-centered organizations have shaped contemporary attitudes, initiated bold ventures and changed prevailing thought. In Houston, with its culture of entrepreneurship and its vibrant arts community, numerous examples exist of how artists and arts organizations have taken leadership roles in communities. By raising awareness to needs, redefining the discourse and inspiring new public and private initiatives, effective arts leadership can have impact far beyond the economic. Initially created as the Center for Arts Leadership, Center for Art and Social Engagement (CASE) reflects the refined focus on arts impact.
