Careers in Culture – Careers in Cultural Management

> Where does cultural management fit?

“A career in cultural management came out of my love of all kinds of artistic disciplines. Personally, I enjoy building strategic relationships between arts patrons and excellent organizations, and pairing a caring donor with a worthy company. I have found that the most successful arts administrators are those people who are passionate about the art form in which they work, are committed to learning and implementing best business practices, and genuinely like people.”
-Christy Morrow, Director of Development, Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra and Chamber Choir,

When most people think of arts and culture they think about the artists themselves. Most people know what a director does or an actor, writer, musician or painter for the matter. But what does a cultural manager do?
 
Cultural managers work closely with the artistic community to support the artistic or heritage vision of an organization.
