Q&A: What is the best advice for your young self? “Admit mistakes. Have patience. Invest in Zoom stock per-2020.”

Neil Kirschling took over in 2022 as executive director of the Delaware Arts Alliance, a statewide nonprofit advocacy organization that develops sector-wide strategies to advance arts and culture. He brought his experience from Rodel, where he helped shape education policy research, to the DAA. One of his first major tasks is creating Delaware’s Creative Economy and Cultural Tourism Recovery and Growth Plan, a roadmap for the necessary policy changes and investments required to grow and sustain the creative sector that includes arts nonprofits, for-profit businesses, and individual artists. This plan will include an online map of arts and culture sites in the state, a policy agenda and an economic impact study to help grow revenue driven by the arts.
