Community Engagement

Survival of established arts organizations hinges on their ability to engage effectively with broad segments of the population, thereby expanding the range of funding options available. As competition for donors and audiences increases, and arts organizations attempt to position themselves as important forces in the lives of their communities, they will need to gain skills in developing relationships with diverse constituencies in order to engage new audiences.

Arts Education

The aspect of the course will explore how people learn, as well as determine what learning takes place inside the arts organization in conjunction with schools and beyond the facility through innovative outreach programs. Setting learning outcomes, creating programs and evaluating their success will allow a practical approach to the subject matter.
