The Leadership Development Institute (LDI) of the Association of Performing Arts Presenters (APAP) produces information and resources on how performing arts organizations can build and sustain meaningful relationships in their community. That information includes descriptions of ways to engage the community through the arts. Website visitors can learn how to make a case of support, build an organizational culture, connect with the community, involve artists, and evaluate impacts. Best practices of each are also offered. The goal of the LDI is to develop the leadership, knowledge, and capacity required to advance the field of presenting performing arts. In addition, LDI members have created a library of resource materials to help presenters in their community building efforts.
