Annual Report to Donors 2008 - Interlochen Center for the Arts


Annual Report Growing the Campus to Grow Our Programs The quality of buildings, facilities and on-campus amenities continues to be an important part of the decision process as parents and students consider attending Interlochen, and the past year saw continued growth and development of campus facilities and infrastructure. We are grateful that so many alumni, families and friends recognize the capital issues facing Interlochen and have come forward in support of world class facilities for world-class programs. • The Herbert H. and Barbara C. Dow Center for Visual Arts is nearing completion and will be ready for use in fall 2008. The 36,000 square foot, $7.5 million building will be unequaled as a visual art facility by any high school and most colleges in the country. It replaces a 60-year old former maintenance garage. • The Mallory Costume Shop in the basement of the Harvey theater annex is a state-of-the-art, 11,000 square foot facility for costume design, construction and storage. It was made possible by a $300,000 gift from the Mallory Foundation of Reno, Nevada. • Significant progress has been made on faculty housing. Renovation is complete in 85 percent of summer faculty residences. Five new houses that will serve Academy and Camp faculty are under construction, thanks to a gift from the Mary Mae Foundation. Occupancy will take place in winter 2009. • The Stone Center Hotel was renovated with a significant electrical upgrade, the first in its 60 year history. Thirty guest rooms received new windows, individual heating and air conditioning, linens, carpet, lighting, insulation, paint, and some received new furniture, television and tile. • We installed a campus-wide generator to keep our campus infrastructure and business systems running in the case of major loss of power. • The 15-year-old analog phone system was replaced with a digital system that provides significant sophistication in all phone services, from queuing to call management. Each phone has a video screen and speaker that can be controlled in the event of a campus emergency and linked to the campus-wide public address system, a huge improvement in campus safety and emergency notification. The Herbert H. and Barbara C. Dow Center for Visual Arts will be unequaled as a visual art facility by any high school and most colleges in the country 7

Annual Report Planning Interlochen 2020 While Interlochen has spent the past five years invigorating our programs, revitalizing our campus, and reaching out and engaging our alumni and friends for the present, we have done so while also asking the important questions about how Interlochen will remain a vital force in future decades. That’s why this past year we have spent considerable effort in a research project to help us think about the challenges facing us – and other arts and cultural institutions – in the future. We collaborated with Global Business Network, a world-renowned consulting firm based in San Francisco that has helped some of the world’s best organizations in business, media, philanthropy, technology, social causes and politics plan their futures. Using a strategy called “scenario planning,” we met with more than 350 members of the Interlochen community – faculty, staff, administration, alumni, students, parents, friends and partners – to consider the challenges and opportunities of the future, and the role that Interlochen should play in the arts and education. Through this process, we developed a series of scenarios that were used to anticipate critically important trends that may exert great influence between now and 2020. While complex, four trends emerged: • The role of institutions in content delivery and engagement is shifting dramatically, as people who learn about, value and consume the arts look for new experiences both real and virtual, on-demand, alone or in groups and in many locations. • Communication technology is changing the focus of the arts we learn and consume, with a greater emphasis on world arts and culture and the interdisciplinary relationships between the arts, humanities and sciences. • The distribution of learning and experience is changing how and where people learn and consume the arts – off campus experiences using the World Wide Web are becoming as important as on-campus experiences. • The diversity of people and of the arts and culture in the world is becoming increasingly important to arts organizations. What do those trends mean for Interlochen and its programs? The beauty of scenarios research is that it projects multiple futures; by looking down the road and comparing where Interlochen is today with what we might look like in the future, we can use a “gap analysis” to identify what to plan for, invest in and initiate to be competitive and relevant in 2020. The process is designed to help Interlochen maintain flexibility in how it approaches the ever-changing and competitive arts and cultural environment. Through scenario planning, we hope to know how to invest in programs and new initiatives that emerge over time, rather than developing a single, prescriptive strategic plan. 8 ... asking the important questions about how Interlochen will remain a vital force in future decades
