Description: Fundamental skills in arts management provides early career arts professionals (1-3 years of experience) an opportunity to learn what it means to work in a non-profit arts organization. The program is unique in that it will use the arts to teach principles and language of arts management.
We will use storytelling methods from theatre that acknowledges the complexity of humanity in how we approach our work and organization. And we will use different art forms that are tactile in our in-class exercises in order that the information learned is physically embedded in our memory.
The program will be co-taught by Darrell Pidner, Management Consultant, and Geraldine Ysselstein, Arts Leadership Director of the Rozsa Foundation.
Reason: We recognize that there are many paths into arts management. Some may enter the field as a practicing artist, a volunteer in an arts organization, or are passionate supporters of the arts. Wherever you are at – this program is for those who have recently started working (less than 3 years) in an arts organization and are looking to build their understanding and skill set in arts management.
