Thanks for visiting the companion website for the fifth edition of Management and the Arts. Arts management is all about innovative thinking, creative problem solving, and an ability to integrate the best practices of the arts and business. The interdisciplinary nature of the work of an arts manager requires people in the field who have sensitivity, use common sense, and who can apply knowledge and skills from disciplines such as business, technology, finance, economics, philosophy, and psychology. Connecting to our communities helps strengthen the important role the arts have in enriching lives. The resources provided on this website are designed to help arts managers strengthen their communities. Please feel free to post examples (good or bad) of connecting to communities.
