1 PM EDT: Teaching Research Literacy
Research literacy remains an underdeveloped skill for many arts managers. Nonetheless, research drives every aspect of their work; to write winning grants, successfully attract and pursue donors, gain new audiences, produce fruitful advocacy campaigns, and differentiate between best and not-quite-best practices. They also benefit from research on diversity and inclusion, arts participation, creative industries development, and many other areas. But, not all research is equal. Articles published in prominent journals or promoted by otherwise legitimate outlets may still be unreliable due to research limitations. It’s up to individual arts managers to be cautious, informed consumers. Whether you’ve taken (or taught) courses in research methods or are a research newbie, you’ll benefit from this presentation’s approach to research literacy through key skills including being wary of big data, the importance of research tool criticism, the myth of research neutrality, problems with data visualization, and more. This workshop is informative and interactive.

3 PM EDT: Making Capstone Count: A Discussion About the Culminating Student Academic Experience
Have you heard this about Capstone Projects? “This is a lot of work!” “I’m graduating soon, do I really need one more class with so much work involved?” “Can I at least put this on my resume?” Capstone courses can be both overwhelming and enthralling. As students wrap up other classes, start thinking about graduation and obtaining jobs, the capstone represents the zenith of a student’s academic prowess. This session will be an examination of how capstone courses have evolved in order to facilitate 21st Century academic needs such as critical thinking, collaboration, leadership, flexibility, initiative, and social skills. After a brief overview, the session will highlight the considerations of program directors and academics when designing and implementing capstones. In the second half of the session, attendees will break into small groups to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of their capstones and panelists will lead a discussion on the best steps forward.

1 PM EDT: Creativity that Works: An Interdisciplinary Framework for Developing Arts Professionals
This presentation will share the framework for the Creativity that Works (CTW) initiative developed by the School of the Arts (SOA) at Converse College. Our goals include (1) incorporating critical thinking and creative expression in all areas of study, (2) providing external educational experiences that enrich the overall learning process, and (3) providing training in career management. In order to do so, we increased experiential learning opportunities, developed new courses, and increased audience engagement opportunities beyond the campus community. The CTW framework has also served to create a greater sense of community and collaboration within the SOA as we ensure students have access to critical skills that are necessary regardless of their chosen arts discipline. We train students to be working professionals in the arts by fostering communication, creativity, and scholarship.

1 PM EDT: Pipelines to Where? : Critical Inquiry of Pathways into Arts Administration
Leadership development programs and pipelines are a hot topic within arts management programs and the arts and culture sector as a whole. These programs are often designed by people who may not experience the same barriers to access or metrics of success as people who do not share their same backgrounds (i.e. race, class, ability, gender, sexuality etc.). This session aims to explore the pipelines through which we have all navigated to arrive at our current positions, examining privilege, power, barriers to access, levers for change, and reinforcing feedback loops, all of which inform how equity is positioned and fostered within the sector. Through examining our own lived experiences and discussing empirical research on cultural equity co-authored by the presenting team, session participants will workshop actionable steps to create culture shifts within their institutions and organizations, supporting more culturally relevant and equitable leadership development programs.

1 PM EDT: Breaking Out of the Box: Teaching Legal Issues For Real
Legal errors can mean the difference between organizational life and death. If available at all, is the traditional “legal issues” class really helpful? Let’s think differently about preparing arts administration students to manage legal issues. The end-game is not for arts managers to be their own lawyers; it’s for them to recognize when it’s time to consult a qualified attorney. This session will propose incorporating the development of that practical skill, into students’ existing coursework.

1 PM EDT: Using Podcasts to Enhance Student Learning Inside & Outside the Classroom
Podcasts help us learn about a myriad of subjects. They inform us about current events and issues that may not yet be written about. This is no less the case for many topics covered in arts administration. Podcasts also allow us to bring additional “guest speakers” into the classroom. This session covers how to use podcasts to further student understanding and support teaching, as well as demonstrate how to teach the creation of podcasts. The session pulls from personal experiences using podcasts in curriculum from having students listen to podcasts throughout the semester to learning how to create their own. This session will share tips and tools for taking your class to the next level using podcasts, which is a tangible way to rethink student learning outcomes, expand access to knowledge for people who are differently-abled, and helps us re-imagine the future of knowledge objects and public scholarship.

1 PM EDT: Career Duality: A Strategy for Career Empowerment and Maximizing Resources in the Arts
The creative industries offer the opportunity to pursue a career as either a creative (artist, producer, songwriter, etc.) or as a "logician" (artist manager, arts administrator, agent, entertainment attorney, venue manager, etc.) Though both vocational paths are integral to a viable industry, the work of calling songs into existence or entertaining an audience differs from working with the administrative aspects of the business. And while the daily activities of creatives may differ from those of the logician, some may sense a call to Career Duality, to work on both sides of the industry as a Career Dualist. Career Duality involves the deliberate pursuit of a dual career as both a creative and a logician, which is stimulated by the drive to express dual proclivities that are simultaneously artistic and analytical. This session speaks to the dilemma experienced by those struggling with career decisions involving whether to work in the industry using their analytical abilities, or to work as a creative, or to do both. The session also explores the potential for maximizing arts resources through a Career Duality approach.

Sackler Donations. #MeToo. Microaggressions. Macroaggressions. Trigger Warnings. Equitable pay. Patron data collection, use, and privacy. Covid19. Diversity and Inclusion. Exclusivity. Inclusivity. Color conscious casting. Colorblind casting. Deaccessioning. Appropriation. Social Justice. Social Responsibility.
The complexities of today’s arts workplace require a nuanced approach, and our students need to be prepared to respond to challenges both effectively and empathetically. Role playing and simulations can aid students to be better able to “think on their feet” and learn to be adept at solving problems in real time. Importantly, role playing provides students with hands-on “real world” experience in a safe environment: the classroom.

From high-stakes scenarios to everyday workplace challenges, the exercises examined in this session will include a collective bargaining scenario, a gala seating activity, and a series of “What would you do?” role playing scenarios.

Our students need to practice the skills that will help them develop emotional intelligence and cultural competencies so that they can better meet the ethical challenges facing the field today. In 2013, leadership educators and theorists Corey Seemiller and Thomas Murray called for the development of a range of leadership competencies in our students. Many of these core competencies are directly related to ethical leadership: personal behavior (including follow through, resiliency, and responding to change and ambiguity); learning and reasoning (reflection and application or decision making), and civic responsibility (including the issues of diversity and inclusion).

Even seasoned professionals face the inherent challenge that “hindsight is 20/20,” but providing our students with opportunities to examine, explore, and engage in complex scenarios, in the relative safety of the classroom, can help prepare them for the complex challenges of the arts workplace.

1 PM EDT: The Death of the New York City Opera: A Case Study
Heidi Waleson, opera critic of the Wall Street Journal, discusses her “Mad Scenes and Exit Arias: The Death of the New York City Opera and the Future of Opera in America” (Metropolitan 2018; Picador paperback 2019), which charts the demise of a major legacy cultural institution. In 2013, following a decade of disastrous missteps, the 70-year old company filed for bankruptcy. It is both a cautionary tale, and a dramatic, real-world example of how failures in management and governance can prove fatal to cultural institutions. The City Opera story offers a compelling case study of what not to do – and how easily organizations can fall into that path. This session explores the interlocking elements that brought down the company, and their enduring relevance to all kinds of nonprofits, including its history, business model, vision/mission, management, governance, and fiscal irresponsibility. It also looks at how other opera companies tackled some of the same environmental challenges.

1 PM EDT: Blank Canvas: Explorative Behavior and Personal Agency in Arts Entrepreneurship Education
How do arts students learn to behave like entrepreneurs? Experiential and entrepreneurial learning theories in arts entrepreneurship education (Toscher, 2019) lead us to believe that in order facilitate entrepreneurial knowledge generation which “enables [entrepreneurs] to recognize and act on entrepreneurial opportunities and to organize and manage new ventures” (Politis, 2005, p. 400) , individuals need to exercise personal agency and engage in explorative behavior (Kolb & Kolb, 2009; Politis, 2005). If an aim of a particular arts education is to help students generate such entrepreneurial knowledge, educators should arguably create learning environments in which their students can exercise personal agency and behave exploratively. Using rigorous analysis of empirical data (including in depth interviews, observations, course deliverables and student learning diaries) from a course in arts entrepreneurship, this paper presents an empirically derived pedagogical model of how students exercise personal agency and explore in the arts entrepreneurship education classroom.

3 PM EDT: Culturally Responsive, Collaborative Arts Program Development and Evaluation: Who is the expert?
How students and/or graduates are supported and mentored by practitioners? This guiding question for the conference invites us to think about our role as Arts Administrators and Educators/Researchers. In this paper, we offer that our on-going, collaborative partnership among university, arts organization, and K-12 students has created a praxis not only between theory and practice but also among practitioner, researcher, and student. Specifically, we address 1) How does program design and implementation shift (both in limitations and in opportunities) in a Culturally Responsive and Collaborative Evaluation iterative process?; and 2) How did we negotiate our changing roles as both expert and student throughout the process? This research suggests that CRCE has positive implications for reflexive program design and implementation and has meaningful impacts on the researcher, arts administrator, and the participants as both experts and students.

The session includes a presentation introducing the development of open source materials for an undergraduate introductory arts administration course. The aim of these open source material grants meets the ever-present challenges associated with printed materials: lack of agility in printed textbooks and rising cost of college textbooks (an 812% increase since 1978). The agility in open source material also helps to address concerns of regularly changing environments in arts administration roles, specifically issues related to advocacy, censorship, economics, technology, and emerging management trends. The presentation will provide a process for creating open source materials, a survey of current textbook resources, pedagogical advantages of open source materials, and technology used to create dynamic presentations of materials.

To our students, the world appears to be unraveling. The problems we face are interconnected and global and require a deeper understanding of how to work in systems and in collaboration. Students require new skills and knowledge in order to make meaningful change though the arts and in their communities. This session explores the relationship between climate disruption, social justice, international relationships, and intercultural competence and how arts management programs can, and should, prepare and inspire students to use their roles as arts presenters and community conveners to be responsive to opportunities and make positive change. In this interactive session, participants will identify the most relevant issues facing students, and discover and highlight current philosophies and arts strategies being applied to address them in the U.S. and Europe. The session concludes with shared action steps such as creating a transatlantic toolbox to share best practices or hold ongoing dialogue.

Topics to be considered: legal, business and financial structures and questions; the consulting market and AAAE’s “niche” in the field; the AAAE brand and marketing opportunities in the arts consulting economy; the future of arts management consulting; students, alums and professors participation models; and integration and/or partnerships with AAAE member programs and individual consultants. The session features networking and resource sharing as well as participation in the co-creation of a potential new arts management consulting practice model and a new revenue stream to support AAAE’s programming and growth to support the arts management field.

Through interactive presentations and round-table discussions with former MA students, this session will present three case studies of successful collaborative programs developed between MA Art Curatorship and MA Art Management programs at the University of Melbourne and local creative industries. The first case will focus on the partnership between the University of Melbourne and the Australian Center for the Moving Image, ACMI X that provided a robust platform for industry placement research internships for graduate students. The second case will discuss an experimental Industry Engagement Learning Project (IEL) implemented in 2018 as a part of the graduate course AMGT90004 States, Governments and the Arts. The IEL Project engaged 32 students to participate in a collaboration with the industry partner, Stoneclap Company, to organize an experimental community event – Digital Performance Culture Now, that brought together local and international artists with the help of teleconference technologies. Finally, the presentation will showcase learning achievements of several graduate students who participated in the accelerator program at the University of Melbourne in the Melbourne Entrepreneurial Centre, Translating Research at Melbourne (TRaM). In May - June 2019 the  team of 3 graduate students under my leadership successfully passed 2 stages of the TRaM business accelerator to explore an opportunity for a development of a research consultancy start up to target the cultural sector and  offer innovative digital and data-driven solutions for strategic planning and audience development.

3 PM EDT: Data and Deliberation: How Some Arts Organizations are Using Data to Understand Audiences
Even before the Covid-19 pandemic shuttered performances, many nonprofit performing arts organizations faced challenges. National statistics show stagnant or declining attendance across many art forms associated with the nonprofit performing arts. While the problem is widely acknowledged, there is less consensus or confidence about how organizations can respond. Can data and market research help? This presentation addresses that question by offering interim findings from research on the experiences of 25 performing arts organizations in The Wallace Foundation’s Building Audiences for Sustainability initiative. Francie Ostrower is Principal Investigator of a multiyear evaluation of the initiative, being conducted at The University of Texas at Austin, and commissioned and funded by The Wallace Foundation. The presentation concludes by inviting audience members to discuss curricular implications.
