FROM OUR FAMILY TO YOURS: INSTITUTE OFFERS NEW, FREE ONLINE COURSE
We are pleased to share our new, free online course with you. We will announce the course publicly in January but wanted to share with you in advance. Please feel free to mention this news to your friends, colleagues, and professional networks.
Taught by myself and DeVos Institute President Brett Egan, the six-week course will introduce you to our management theory, the Cycle, which supports thriving arts and cultural organizations regardless of art form, geography, or size. Based on our work in more than 80 countries, we developed the Cycle as a simple, but powerful tool to assist arts managers in their effort to respond to an increasingly complex environment and propel their institutions to excellence.
We have designed this course for arts managers, board members, funders, students, and even patrons and enthusiasts of arts and cultural organizations who are interested in learning how to build thriving and vital institutions around the world.
The course includes lectures, answers to frequently asked questions, case studies from arts managers across the United States and worldwide, and activities to assist you in applying the principles of the Cycle in your organization.
We hope you enjoy the course, and we wish you a wonderful holiday season!
