Director of Programs and Membership at the Cultural Alliance of Fairfield County since September 2013, David Green has a history of bringing people and ideas together to “make it new.” After graduating from Brown University with a PhD in American Studies, he brought together British and American artists, first with the British American Arts Association in London and New York, then with his own nonprofit, British Arts in New York. David managed the Artists’ Fellowship Program at the New York Foundation for the Arts for 5 years before creating the position of DIrector of Communications at NYFA. After 5 years of ever-increasing involvement with rapidly evolving digital communications technology, David became founding executive director of the National Initiative for a Networked Cultural Heritage, an advocacy nonprofit based in Washington DC, creating common ground for librarians, educators, museum directors, artists, scholars, and technologists to define common goals and strategies in building open and unified access to cultural resources online. With an Advanced Certificate from NYU in Strategy and Leadership, he opened Knowledge Culture Consulting in 2005, working for clients on projects focused on how digital technologies change how we think, learn and work. Clients included Wesleyan University, the Mellon Foundation, the Canadian Heritage Information Network among others. He was senior researcher and solutions strategist for Learning Worlds (2008-2009) and Director of Content Development and Project manager for the NSF-funded Art of Science Learning project. Since 2013, he has worked to bring the cultural nonprofit, creative business and individual artist members of the Cultural Alliance to work together as more effective partners in the creative economy of Fairfield County.
