The A to Z of Arts Management

November 18, 2015

The A to Z of Arts Management: Reflections on Theory and Reality contains commentary on an array of topics that I hope will be of interest to managers, leaders and board members in the arts and cultural industries. For each of the next 26 weeks after the book’s launch on 4 December 2015, I’ll provide an extract from one or two topics I’ve written about under each letter to whet your appetite for the book itself which is available in paperback or electronic form from Tilde University Press.

Here’s the wonderful cover of the book – a production photography taken by Jeff Busby of a Melbourne Theatre Company production of Yasmina Reza’s play God of Carnage. You can see some of Australia’s finest actors at work:  Hugo Weaving, Natasha Herbert, Geoff Morrell, Pamela Rabe. I chose the image because I wanted to celebrate MTC’s work and because I love the chaos of the scene – an experience that many arts managers will recognise.
