Arts & Culture Management

Central to the module is the art and culture company. The question is: what does the management process look like in a theatre/concert venue or a museum? What does the product consist of and who is the customer? These processes and the art product, the annual offer of performances in the theatre and concert halls and the art objects exhibited in the museums as a permanent collection or changing exhibitions will be discussed and investigated in this module.

The final destination of this expedition is that you demonstrate you 'understand' and have developed a vision on the variables of the Dutch (or any other country’s) art and culture sector that play a role in the programming of the theatrical and visual art products (expressions) of subsidized art companies. And that this emphasizes the relevance of art. The three variables from which the art company is highlighted are:

1.       operational: business operations, programming, public groups, financial management, subsidies, art marketing, (non-)profit providers of culture.

2.       policy: substantive and operational aspects, including subsidy requirements, cultural dissemination, cultural vision, cultural participation, art education.

3.       art expression: art philosophy, current offer in the field of theatre/music and studying the visual arts from the point of view of the experience of art, art appreciation based on art, theatre and music history.
