A leading nonprofit organization for advancing the arts has elected Tatiana Hernandez, arts associate at Knight Foundation, to its Emerging Leaders Council.
The Emerging Leaders Council, an elected advisory body to Americans for the Arts, works to identify and cultivate the next generation of arts leaders and provides a way for new leaders to share their interests with others as they continue to develop their skills.
The council assists in developing programs and resources to promote the growth and development of emerging arts professionals.
Hernandez joined Knight Foundation in May 2011. She has over 10 years of experience in the nonprofit field, ranging from program management to marketing and development.
At Knight, Hernandez works to weave the arts into the fabric of Knight resident communities to engage and inspire the people living in them. She has recently written for Knight’s blog on how arts can help define communities and create a sense of place and how the arts can anchor people to place.
Before joining Knight, Hernandez worked at the Museum of Contemporary Art in North Miami. She also spent five years in Los Angeles working on issues in public education.
As a newly elected member to the council, Hernandez will be given professional development opportunities to engage in the field, build new relationships with colleagues and learn about new programs, resources and tools.
