In keeping with the Program’s commitment to integrate practice with theoretical perspectives, we arrange a series of site visits each semester. During these site visits, students tour a variety of arts institutions and interact with producers, curators, artists, and industry professionals.
These visits give students the opportunity to directly interact with professionals who negotiate the tensions of arts management on a daily basis, providing the forum to contextualize classroom notions into a workplace reality. Visits to both Canadian and domestic institutions take students into a new cultural context, encouraging the examination of how differing public and cultural policies influence the issues and solutions in active arts organizations. Each visit allows students to witness the range of issues – including political, public, legal, financial, administrative, and others – which uniquely affect the day-to-day management of the arts.
Students take part in these visits as a program, cohort and part of individual course requirements throughout their time with us.
