This book provides a contemporary overview of the field of arts leadership, focusing on the performing arts. The author draws on his extensive global experience advising arts organizations, and proposes an innovative approach to organizational design, systems, and structures for arts leaders in the 21st century that is based in ecological thinking and the creative process that is intrinsic to the arts. This book provides an exceptional tool to understand a unique sector, and is essential reading for students and practitioners across the creative and cultural industries.
Contrary to popular belief, the practice of art isn't just a product of innate talent or artistic vision; artwork emerges from an intentionally constructed and maintained artistic practice. Developed from interviews with more than 75 mid-career artists, this book examines the methods and approaches highly successful artists use to stay creatively robust for a lifetime.
The book appraises what planners do and how well they do it, how and why their current activities differ from past practices, and how much and in what ways planners have or have not enhanced the quality of urban life and contributed to the intellectual capital of the field.
