The Artful Manager:
Field Notes on the Business
of Arts and Culture
by E. Andrew Taylor
Available in paperback, Kindle, and Apple Books formats.
[ Read an excerpt from the paperback edition (pdf format). ]
What if we misunderstood what it meant to run arts organizations "like a business"? What if our management metaphors actually contribute to the problems we hope they will solve?
In these 50 "field notes" from his first quarter century of teaching, research, and consulting in arts and cultural management, E. Andrew Taylor reframes and reimagines the ways we think and work in the arts.
"Andrew Taylor has an uncanny ability to find the small things that make a big difference and provokes his large readership to think outside their own areas of expertise. Doubtful there is anyone blogging on the arts who is more respected and beloved." BARRY HESSENIUS
