Overview

Learn how to help arts and cultural organisations thrive

As the global funding landscape is changing rapidly, arts and cultural organisations are becoming increasingly concerned about what actions to take.

On this course, you will learn about the importance of developing organisational resilience through effective leadership and management, and how to diversify income streams by becoming more entrepreneurial. You will explore different leadership styles, change management and entrepreneurship, so you’ll be in a better position to lead your organisation’s fundraising strategy and offer better value to your audiences.

This course is for chief executives, senior managers and board members involved with fundraising in the non-profit arts and culture sector, whether in the UK or internationally. It also aimed at those aspiring to take on a leadership role in the future.

You may be working in a museum, a gallery, theatre or a community arts centre trying to reach wider audiences and build stronger partnerships. If you are working in the arts and cultural sector and trying to create a sustainable organisation this course will help you achieve it.

This course might also be of interest to postgraduate students of visual and performing arts, and of arts management, business and management, museum and gallery studies and cultural policy.

This was a great course. It was challenging without been life consuming and I can tell it is going to be a marvelous asset.

I’ll have to put some order in my notes but following the syllabus will be easy.

I highly recommend this course.

I will set up a company as a designer and creator in the near future.

Having taken this course now has helped me to think about that strategy.

And,I have no economic ability to get a good education at university. So I thank you for offering this online course.

An excellent snapshot of the English arts infrastructure. If you want to know how people access the system or how not to, then there is no better place to start.
