International Arts Management in England and Ireland – Summer 2016
This course provided an introduction to arts management concepts and issues in England & Ireland. Students engaged and explored London and Dublin’s rich historical and contemporary performing, visual and literary arts management traditions in two of the most culturally dynamic cities in Europe. During eight classrooms sessions in Arlington, a thirteen-day session in London and a eight-day session in Dublin, students conducted a comparative analysis of the artistic, financial, audience development, community outreach, and international professional management structures that influence the performing, visual and literary arts in England and Ireland today. The time aboard included guest lectures, discussions, on-site observations, workshops, exclusive guided tours and meetings with top executives, arts managers, cultural policy and diplomacy experts, entrepreneurs, and artists who provided a broad understanding of how these diverse countries foster the performing, visual and literary arts at home and abroad.
