ROZSA ADMIN FUNDAMENTALS TRAINING (RAFT)
An Introduction to the Fundamentals of Arts Administration
We recognize that there are many paths into arts administration. Some may enter the field as a practicing artist, a volunteer in an arts organization, or as a passionate supporter of the arts.
Wherever you are coming from – the RAFT program is for those who have been working or volunteering for less than 3 years in an arts organization and are looking to build their knowledge.
Fundamental skills in arts management provide early-career arts professionals (0-3 years of experience) an opportunity to learn what it means to work in a not-for-profit arts organization.
Participants will be invited to take part in a fictional case-study story through speaking roles, discussions, role-playing, and a small group presentation.
Topics covered include organizational structure (non-profit vs charitable status), board and staff relations, financial statements, strategic planning (mission, vision, values, goals, objectives, SWOT analysis, and evaluation), and project planning.
