Arts Administration

Synopsis

Following on from the successful first edition, Arts Administration provides a broad introduction to the role of the arts administrator, highlighting many of the pitfalls which can occur, such as conflicting philosophies, financial and legal restraints, and defines the skills which may be employed to overcome them. The authors also discuss the principles as well as the practice of arts administration. This edition has been updated to include arts policy formulated by the new Ministry of Heritage, the workings of the national lottery and the role of ethnic minority, fringe and community arts. To give the reader an opportunity to experience a variety of problems encountered in arts administration, 10 new case studies are included, ranging from balancing budgets to marketing and from fund raising to programming. An individual question and group work assignment follows each case study and a section pointing out possible solutions to the problems is provided, making the book a particularly helpful teaching aid.
