WHAT IS ARTS MANAGEMENT AT THE LEAP INSTITUTE?

Arts Management at the LEAP Institute (Leadership, Entrepreneurship, Arts Advocacy and the Public) Institute for the Arts, combines business management methods and processes related to the arts world to create a comprehensive understanding of the operational aspects of private and public arts organizations.

An arts organization could include any small, mid, or large museum, gallery, theatre, opera house, community arts center, both in the for-profit or non-profit sector.  Art Management's purpose is to provide stability within an arts organization by assisting it in fulfilling its mission, guiding its operations, while continuing to uphold the integrity of the arts and its role in society.
