Is There A Relationship Between Personal Finance Literacy And the Financial Administration of Arts Organizations?
According to a lyric sung by the late African-American blues singer Alberta Hunter “You cain’t have romance without finance.” The same is true in terms of longevity and survival of profit and non-for-profit organizations. More specifically, arts organizations do not exist for very long without effective financial management and financial support from various external sources.

But there is a deeper issue that is pertinent to the training of arts administrators at the graduate level and it is this: if finances and financial administration is the bedrock foundation of an arts organization, how pertinent is the personal financial literacy of those in charge of the organization? My answer is: very pertinent.

1 PM EDT: The Development Characteristics of Cultural Industries in "COVID-19" Epidemic and its Post-epidemic Pattern Reorganization
During the outbreak, as the offline physical cultural industries are in a state of temporary closure, new forms and new models have emerged in the online digital cultural industry, which will have a far-reaching impact on both inside and outside of the industry. Social media, characterized by real-time release, mutual attention and sharing, constructs an "interactive field" for information dissemination; The huge demand for home entertainment has led to a surge in online entertainment consumption such as online video, digital audio and digital games, which has reshaped the new form of cultural consumption. After the epidemic, with the advent of the 5G era, the dual-wheel drive with digital technology and cultural creativity, as a new engine of economic growth and a new factor of production, will promote the restructuring and upgrading of the future pattern of cultural industry.

1 PM EDT: Education at Lincoln Center: The Past Speaks to the Future
In 1975, a group of artists were asked by Lincoln Center to help its emergent education department forge a new vision for the way New York City students could experience the arts. I have spent the past seven years as an administrator at Lincoln Center piloting a program that aims to reimagine our practices to more deeply consider the needs, interests, and challenges of our individual partner schools, which are primarily situated within marginalized communities. Through analysis of over two dozen individual and group interviews and a trove of archival documents, this paper elucidates my understanding of the opportunities and tensions that framed Lincoln Center’s formative years in education, revealing points of resonance and dissonance with my experience shaping a new initiative. Our shared meaning-making addresses issues of assessment, sustainability, and racial and class disparities, as well as provides recommendations around best practices in the field of arts education administration.

1 PM EDT: Towards a Constructive Epistemology of Arts Management Education
I articulate a sequence of epistemological inquiries for arts management students to use to frame solid responses to management challenges. I argue that four different dimensions of management knowledge are embodied in management teaching and should be recognized independently with their own learning outcomes and appropriate pedagogies. I label these variants: Normative, Positivist, Diagnostic, and Prescriptive, which should be evaluated in sequence for given issues and stakeholders. Normative analysis highlights issues of principles and values; Positivist analysis addresses empirical observation of data in light of principal explanatory theories; Diagnostic analysis embodies cause-and-effect evaluation of past data, and evaluation of possible future scenarios. Prescriptive analysis is a stage for proposing management action.

1 PM EDT: Arts Leadership: A Systematic Literature Review
Leadership has always been a significant piece of arts and cultural management, yet the concept is constantly evolving from multiple disciplines, over time, and between cultures. Rapid globalization leads to a demand for new forms of leadership, including complex problem solving and social skills. Employing a systematic literature review, this paper explores the ways in which leadership has been researched in the arts management context over time. In addition to offering a description of arts leadership research, the inquiry sheds light on how aspects of systems intelligence are explored and described in this larger body of research. Findings suggest that systems intelligence is described, but not explicitly defined, in our traditional notion of arts leadership. This research contributes to an understanding of how arts leadership is examined and described which has implications for both the formal study and practice of arts leadership.

1 PM EDT: Prepare Metaskills of Students for Global Arts Leadership through Mentored Research
The constant systemic change in the globalized arts community and art market calls for arts administrators with effective metaskills. This research article takes the pedagogical action research approach to study the process of a mentored undergraduate research on the Chinese contemporary art market. this article argues that mentored undergraduate research on arts administration topics in minority communities or international contexts enhances students’ metaskills. The mentored research process guides students to learn from the discomfort of conducting academic research in another culture and experiencing the messy process of knowledge creation. The research attempts to address the three questions: 1. How does the research on the Chinese contemporary art market deepen the student’s understanding of the diverse arts ecosystem co-existing and interacting with each other in the globalized world? 2. How does the process of research bring the student’s awareness of integrating knowledge and skills trained through liberal arts education into professional metaskills? 3. What lessons can be learned from the mentored research process?

1 PM EDT: Building up a Résumé: an Assessment of a Practicum Model and the Effects on Professional Development for Modern Languages and Cultural Management Alumni
This paper assesses the impact a practicum model has had in career development for alumni of a BA in Modern Languages and Cultural Management. The research questions address both the experience provided to students by the practicum itself and the effect that the inclusion of such experiences in their résumés had when seeking employment. Additionally, it examines the experiences of current students in their final semester since the practicum model has been restructured. Data was collected through semi-structured interviews with both alumni and students. Conclusions point towards a positive impact in professional development, mainly because the practicum program has provided former students with previous work experiences that can be included in résumés, while or even if the practicum experiences themselves might not have been as instructing or fruitful. Taking this into consideration, the author suggests adjustments to the practicum program so that it meets all of its objectives and fulfills students’ expectations.

1 PM EDT: Segmentation Models for Arts Public Relations: Finding an Audience for Opera
How are non-profit boutique opera companies with limited operational budgets targeting and engaging with their publics? This question must be answered if these opera companies are to maintain relevance against an evolving landscape of financial instability, numerous entertainment options, and varied communication techniques. My starting point is that establishing strong connections between non-profit boutique opera companies and their current and potential audiences is essential, to both artistic and financial longevity. Segmentation can provide a successful tool for public relations practice, by targeting these audiences and tailoring communications and engagement activities accordingly.

The research I undertook explores the possible use of segmentation by non-profit boutique opera companies in their public relations activities. Using a qualitative methodology, I conducted a field study with non-profit boutique opera companies located in Toronto. Drawing from the findings I present an overview analysis and outline potential administrative and audience-building strategies for non-profit boutique opera companies.

1 PM EDT: Specialist vs Generalist: recruiting the most effective board members for arts organizations
Boards of directors play a central and integral role in the performance of any arts organization. Each member brings their own experience, lens and expertise to the table. However, not every board member is created equally. Some members of elite boards serve to retain or attain social status, while others’ main motivation is one of sustainability, diversity or corporate responsibility. Regardless of this, it is essential for arts organizations to have the right mix of board members to ensure harmony, synergy and institution performance. A central question organizations face in each recruitment cycle is: what member backgrounds would lead to the most effective mix of board members and success of the organization? This paper studies board members through gaining insights into recruitment and eventual membership.

This study, as part of a Master’s thesis requirement, was conducted and designed to gain an understanding of how much arts administration students at The University of Akron learn during their internship experience. This was compared to what they had learned in the classroom. Research questions pertained to the factors influencing attainment of arts administration content knowledge and professional competencies, and to the satisfaction level after completion of the internship. After looking at different ways of collecting data for this study, a survey was selected as the primary instrument. This thesis was not only intended to provide the university with recommendations for the internship curriculum structure, but to contribute research to the field of arts administration.

1 PM EDT: Arts Ecosystem Research Project: Linking Student Research with Community Benefit
The Arts Ecosystem Research Project has brought together arts management graduate students with over one hundred community practitioners in the first two years of a multi-year applied research initiative to gather, document, and analyze fifty years of the Seattle region’s arts and culture history. Qualitative research methods are being used by students to capture the lived experiences of those who created this rich ecosystem, analyzing lessons of the past to inform the future. Close collaboration with the University’s Library and a highly-respected diverse group of Community Advisors led to the development of a rigorous curriculum and the creation of a publicly-focused digital timeline and website linked to a permanent repository for student research. This experimental project has brought together the academic and practitioner communities, and is seen as opening up myriad opportunities for students, the University, and the regional arts sector.

3 PM EDT: Muses, Ivory Towers, and The Real World: Education and Professional Experiences of Arts Management Alumnae
Women’s historical roles as volunteers, entrepreneurs, and leaders in the arts are crucial to understanding the operation of arts organizations and anticipating future needs. McCarthy (1991) explains that women’s leadership in organizations came from their roles as volunteers. Women developed leadership skills by organizing charity organizations and women’s clubs. In an era when formal education was unavailable to most women, these associations provided opportunities in which women learned from each other while advancing social good, enabling them to be more successful leaders. The field of arts management has since professionalized and is matched with formal education and degrees in arts management. This research relies on phenomenology to produce qualitative data reflecting the educational, managerial experiences of arts management alumnae to determine how higher arts management education impacts women’s professional and voluntary leadership in arts nonprofits. It then applies the recommendations of alumnae to examine current curriculum of arts management programs.

1 PM EDT: Issues in the Convergence of Intangible Cultural Heritage and Intellectual Property Protection System
Intangible Cultural heritage (hereinafter referred to as ICH) is defined as the practices, representations, expressions, knowledge, skills – as well as the instruments, objects, artefacts and cultural spaces associated therewith – that communities, groups and, in some cases, individuals recognize as part of their cultural heritage. As an important manifestation of human intelligence achievements, includes many projects with exclusive characteristics. They have inevitable and intimate connection with modern intellectual property law system in the process of naturally enjoying and actively seeking modern law guarantee. Safeguarding intellectual property rights, so to speak, is one of the most important methods of protecting ICH, and also a good way to involve ICH projects in modern society and inherit and develop them with the help of law. However, at the moment, there are many issues to be solved in the convergence of ICH and intellectual property protection system.

3 PM EDT: Current trends in Arts Management Curricula in the UK
Arts management is still young and evolving but it is also a dynamic discipline and one that has steadily matured over the past fifty or so years. Over this period, not only have the fields of study and the range and scope of the subjects explored gradually expanded, not least given what seems to be the inherent interdisciplinary nature of the field. This paper assesses the key patterns, themes and trends in the discipline in the context of HE in the United Kingdom – what are the factors shaping arts management in the UK? What are the relationships between arts management and other fields and what modes of interdisciplinarity does it engage with? How is this affecting our field?

3 PM EDT: NEA Report on US Art and Design Market
This National Endowment for the Arts awarded the M.A. in Gallery & Museum Management at Western Colorado University a Research: Art Works grant in 2019 to produce a report on the US Art & Design Market. The report is intended to make innovative use of US government tax and labor statistics data to provide insights for all 50 states and District of Columbia for 21 occupations and 14 industries which make up the art market. Our methodology defines the Art Market as the commercial exchanges of ownership in artworks, but artworks themselves can be further subdivided into the disciplines of Fine Art (painting, graphics, drawing, sculpture); Applied Art (jewelry, furniture, ceramics, textiles), i.e. objects that are both beautiful and simultaneously serve a function; and Commercial Art (graphic design, commercial photography), which has the express intention of aiding the consumption of another economic product. The report gives data on numbers of workers in occupations and sales in industries. It also provides demographic data on gender and racial backgrounds of the workers in the art market.

1 PM EDT: The Map Strikes Back: From Empires to Empowerment
Maps have a long history as tools of power. With them, conquerors and kings claimed and named territories, erased populations and identities; planners and developers reshape cities. Scholars of cartography, community organizers, and cultural planners have learned to engage communities in participatory asset mapping to re- assert control over identity, meaning, and futures of their communities. As a foundational practice of cultural planning, cultural asset mapping is a critical skill for future cultural leaders. Through the practice they can identify shared values, understand multiple cultural dimensions of place, and take stock of stories and meaning. Map making can also be a participatory creative practice led by artists. This presentation reviews how creative cultural asset mapping techniques enable and empower leaders to better understand and engage the communities in which they live and work. A case study of an artist-led cultural mapping project in Massachusetts illustrates techniques to involve communities, find new ways to appreciate the diversity of cultures present, and contribute to building stronger communities.

Success’ components are related to quantitative (as prizes, grades, ranks, sells) and qualitative (as image, esteem, brand, power) values. Individualistic and competitive mind-sets often dominate on-campus activities and professional practices, also inside art sector. What if we approach success as building process to play with and not just as ‘the’ aim? research focuses on the experience of internship mentoring for arts management MA students in Lisbon, as shifting moment to prepare a balanced ground, between economic and emotional success, to grow further.The results show the potential of playing applied to life-long learning, in preparation for academic and practitioner careers, influencing cognitive, social and personal skills as planning, problem-solving, decisions making, negotiation as well as thoughts and actions regulation, applied to arts management.

1 PM EDT: A Work in Progress: The Current Status of Art Management Curricula in Chinese Universities
This proposal mainly focuses on the current situation of art management curricula in Chinese universities. Since Chinese Arts Management education field is still in its infancy as programs have only existed for the past ten to fifteen years,and there is no curriculum standard like those developed by AAAE in the US, Chinese universities typically offer courses borrowed from Western Art Administration programs while including information about China’s unique cultural system and art market, which has always be challenging. In order to let prospective students and professional peers better understand the course design and education goals, a systematic study of Chinese Art Management curricula should be conducted. Qualitative methods are used to perform textual analysis based on the course information provided by several typical yet distinct Chinese universities. It analyzes their strengths and weaknesses, identifies and compares their educational objectives. Lastly, it lists several challenges facing this profession in China.

12 PM EDT: Learning to Be One’s Self or A Specialist: A Case Study of Liberal Arts Education in a Chinese College
Is learning to be one’s self or a specialist? To answer this question, this study first overviews the sociocultural contextualization of liberal arts education in Chinese history, and finds out that the ultimate goal of it is learning for one’s self. To understand the current situation, in-depth interviews and questionnaires were conducted among 40 art communication majors in Beijing Dance Academy. The results show that most students have high expectations on liberal arts education. However, the mission of liberal arts education is vague and the benefit is invisible and there is lack of relevant resources. Meanwhile, utilitarianism is penetrated into Chinese education. Consequently, they make more efforts on their specialization, which may enhance their overall competitiveness in the job market. In fact, vocational training and liberal arts education are interconnected and integral parts of college learning. Future implications for the research are also included.

1 PM EDT: Preparing Students for Tandem Upper Management
Tandem management is a common practice in performing arts organizations. Arts administration education relies on management theory developed from the business sector, where tandem management is uncommon at best, and nearly nonexistent. How can higher education best prepare arts administration students for success in tandem management, when foundational literature does not account for the unique reason of the need for dual managers, such as Artistic and Managing Directors? From the lens of theatre, this paper traces why tandem management has prevailed as the dominating management style in US nonprofit theatre and makes the argument for why simply learning management theory from the business world insufficiently prepares future arts leaders. Finally, this paper proposes strategies to better prepare arts administration students for successful careers in arts upper management.
