At the Rozsa Foundation we aim to provide resources to Arts Managers and arts administrative staff. In our Managing Well section we will provide updates on academic and professional development opportunities as well as links to HR Templates, and other material that can help you run a sustainable arts organization!
WORK WITH ACADEMIC PARTNERS
As Alberta’s artistic landscape continues to mature, diversify and thrive, the demands on arts administrators are growing. The Rozsa Foundation believes intentional investment in the education and professional development of the workers on the frontlines of this vibrant sector will further support the sustainable growth of arts and culture in this province. Accordingly, the Foundation supports both the MBA course in arts management at the School of Business, University of Alberta, and the Rozsa Arts Management Program at the Haskayne School of Business Executive Education.
HASKAYNE SCHOOL OF BUSINESS - UNIVERSITY OF CALGARY
The Haskayne School of Business partners with the Rozsa Foundation to provide many opportunities for Managing Well and Professional Development:
- The Rozsa Arts Management Program (RAMP) is a customized Executive Education program which is the first of its kind in Alberta. The program is designed to address the specific needs of arts administrators through content tailored to arts management. RAMP participants will select an existing challenge within their organization and work closely with a faculty mentor, designing and implementing a plan to address it. This also provides an important opportunity for peers to network and learn together. To view our brochure with more information about the program click here.
- "The Next Step" In this program the Foundation connects recent Haskayne graduates who have studied arts marketing, with arts organizations in Calgary who are looking for new Board members. Thanks to a collaboration with the Haskayne Alumni Association and the provincial Department of Culture, a specially designed non-profit governance course is offered to the graduates. Six months later, each new Board attends a one day governance review. If your arts organization is seeking a Gen Y board member, please fill out the our application form.
