(1)

The Certificate in International Arts Management represents an innovative collaboration between AU's highly ranked Arts Management Program and the International Communications Program of the School of International Service (ranked #5 in the world). Students will gain knowledge in cross-cultural communication and international education alongside cultural and non profit theory that will allow them to become leaders and advocates for the arts in a global context. This collaboration allows students to think of arts management issues from a different perspective, surrounded by students all coming at global issues from various angles, looking outside the box, then coming back to apply those concepts directly to arts management. Students will also learn from a variety of opinion leaders, nationally recognized staff, and innovative professionals, with whom they will gain experience and the ability to network. Significant and meaningful work in the arts is increasingly global, and the skills and insights of trained professionals are in high demand. Build your knowledge, grow your network, and make your mark with this flexible, focused academic program.

Mission: The Graduate Certificate in International Arts Management strives to be the first-choice academic program for professionals seeking a bigger impact, more rewarding work, and a vibrant network of practitioners and thought leaders in global cultural initiatives. In a single academic year, the certificate grounds participants in theory and prepares them for action in a full spectrum of management and leadership positions in the arts.

How ISIS created a terrorist art market

"...when examining the group’s decision to destroy fake and priceless art objects a more pragmatic financial motivation is revealed."

Okwui Enwezor: Art world should shrink its footprint | Arts | DW.DE | 11.03.2015

"I think the biggest challenge that we face is funding for institutions....Institutions are so box office driven that we can't fail to appeal to the public. And this populism, speaking for the non-profit sector, is really challenging."

One of the most influential names on the art scene, Okwui Enwezor is curating the Venice Biennale. He tells DW why Karl Marx is on deck, why words trump images, and why the art world's footprint is a few sizes too big.

New Music and Globalization, Part 1: Silk Road and Global Collaborations

"Art, through the biennial, can become particularly symbolic of the flow of global capital—often concretely too, as works are bought and sold. Music, as a time-based art form rooted in experiences rather than in objects, cannot attract the same level of capital investment.”

While Silk Road’s music is enjoyable, its goals laudable, and the musicians’ skills impressive, hybridization of this sort is not a perfect model for understanding or addressing the issues of moder...
