Management of Arts Organizations
Build a team of 5 students.
Find an artistic organization or a project you are interested in.
Make sure that the organization will provide you with enough information to conduct a strategic analysis.
Write a 20 pages max report. Prepare the defense of your project in group. I will ask each group 5 questions. Each student will answer to one question. A another student has a chance to complete the answer of the first student.
1. Financial supports: (2 points)
Does your organization get subsidies or sponsoring? What are the arguments to obtain them? Referring to the lecture do you think additional arguments could be presented?
2. Mission statement: (3 points)
Do your organization have a written mission statement (MS)? Why? Why not? Who did write it? How is it used? For which purpose? Do you have recommendations on the MS content or use?
