Rozsa Arts Management Program
The Rozsa Arts Management Program (RAMP) is a cohort-based certificate program that provides practical customized content taught by Haskayne business faculty and Alberta arts and non-profit professionals. It is designed to benefit mid to senior level arts professionals (3+ years of experience) from all arts disciplines and roles including (but not limited to): program administrators, project coordinators, general managers, artistic directors/producers, arts business owners, and board members.
The Rozsa Foundation values equity, diversity and inclusion in our programs. We welcome and encourage applications for the Rozsa Arts Management Program (RAMP) from arts professionals who identify as Indigenous, Black, People of Colour, New Canadians, Deaf Persons, Persons with Disabilities, Persons Living with Mental Illness, and 2SLGBTQQIA+.
Participants will learn to:
• Practice integrative thinking: analyzing, synthesizing, and incorporating innovation and risk.
• Apply strategic thinking for tangible projects that align with organizational strategic plans and create value for the organization.
• Examine arts management practices within the current realities facing the arts.
• Practice leadership in a valued-lead and ethical way.
A critical success measure for the Rozsa Arts Management Program is ensuring that what is learned is applied to real, relevant, and timely business issues and opportunities. Capstone Projects are designed to provide an opportunity for participants to practically apply program content, assess knowledge gained and drive action through critical thinking and effective communication. Capstone Projects also produce a tangible outcome for participants and their organization.
This program incorporates:
• Ten 3-hour sessions of synchronous, real-time learning led by Haskayne faculty and practicing Alberta arts and non-profit leaders
• Up to 20 hours of self-directed learning (1-3 hours of pre-work for each live session)
• Up to 25 hours of Capstone Project development
• Two Capstone Project guidance sessions and two Capstone Project mentoring clinics
• Two Capstone Project presentations: one to the RAMP cohort and faculty and one to your organization’s board (or equivalent)
• Cohort networking available at the beginning of each session
The 10 in person sessions occur on Tuesdays from 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. and, along with additional presentation dates, begin September 29th and run through April 4th.
The 10 online sessions occur on Thursdays from 1:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. and, along with additional presentation dates, begin September 29th and run through April 6th.
