Centennial College’s Arts Management program prepares you for a career in the evolving arts and cultural industry.
About the program
The Arts Management courses at Centennial College in this two-semester post-graduate certificate program focus on developing the knowledge and skills needed to work in the performing arts sector (theatres, dance companies, music organizations and presenting facilities), the exhibiting arts sector (galleries, museum) and many other cultural and arts-related areas such as arts and film festivals.
The program explores the current issues and practices that allow cultural organizations to build audiences and flourish today — and in the years to come. Facilitated at the Story Arts Centre, Centennial College’s School of Communications, Media, Arts and Design, the program combines business management, marketing and planning with the tools required to connect art, artists and audiences through fundraising, education and volunteerism.
Extensive experiential learning opportunities will connect principles with practice, actively engaging you with the arts management profession. As part of an eight-week field placement, you’ll also have the opportunity to apply your learning in the industry.
When you graduate from Arts Management, you’ll have a thorough understanding of the political, economic, social, ethical, technological and managerial issues facing this sector.
