Nebraska Cultural Endowment Hires Kyle Cartwright as New Executive Director
The Board of the Nebraska Cultural Endowment (nebraskaculturalendowment.org) recently announced that Kyle Cartwright has been named executive director. Cartwright will carry out NCE’s mission and play a vital role in fundraising activities.
Cartwright has an extensive background in the arts and in administration. He earned his Bachelor of Music Education from the University of Nebraska– Lincoln, during which time he interned with the Nebraska Arts Council. Following graduation, he worked in administration at both the Nebraska Arts Council and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment, and also taught music for a brief time within Lincoln Public Schools. Most recently, Cartwright served as the development manager at the Lied Center for Performing Arts.
This year marks 20 years of the Nebraska Cultural Endowment creating sustainability funding for our state’s cultural resources. Cartwright is eager to oversee the Endowment as it impacts future generations, stating, “Everyone gains something from creating magical experiences. When young people grow up with robust experiences, they gain a more well-rounded and comprehensive perspective on the world around them, which allows them to interact more maturely with others and their surroundings. This has a compounding impact on our community as people grow to consume and support more cultural offerings, lending not only to better quality of life, but to an economic boost through cultural investment.”
