Author: John Pick
Description: The nature of arts administration and management has changed dramatically over the last decade with policy, funding and restructuring all playing major parts. Following on from the successful first edition, Arts Administration has now been updated to include arts policy under the new UK Ministry of Heritage, the workings of the national lottery and the role of ethnic minority, fringe and community arts. Ten new case studies include a variety of problems commonly encountered in arts administration, such as balancing budgets, marketing, fund raising and programming. Arts administration is presented here in an historical, social and practical context. An essential read for students, those engaged in administering the arts and for anyone concerned with the arts in contemporary society.
John Pick was the founding professor of Europe's first Department of Arts Policy and Management, at City University, London, having previously worked extensively in education and the arts. He has subsequently held a number of visiting professorships in European and US Universities, and was twice appointed Gresham Professor of Rhetoric in the City of London. He is currently Emeritus Professor of Arts Policy and Management at City University, and Visiting Professor in Arts Management at London's South Bank University. He has published extensively, and is the author of Arts Administration, one of the standard textbooks in the field. His other books include The West End; Mismanagement and Snobbery, Managing the Arts; the British Experience, The State and the Arts, The Theatre Industry, Vile Jelly: the Birth, Life and Lingering Death of the Arts Council of Great Britain and Building Jerusalem: Art Industry and the British Millennium. His next book, Managing Britannia will be published early in 2001. He has, in addition written numerous papers, pamphlets and articles and has been a regular contributor to journals and arts magazines for over thirty years.
