I’m just coming out of a series of project deadlines so today’s post will get right to the point with three things you need to do…
- Read Michael Kaiser’s Huffington Post article from 6/6/2011 titled Are Unions To Blame? where although he fails to mention names, he takes pot shots at those who espouse the notion that artist unions are the primary reason for failing arts orgs. Instead, he encourages those in the business to first look inward and take an honest accounting of efficiency and effectiveness.
- Read the article from Michaela Boland in the 6/4/2011 edition of The Australian. Frankly, it’s not a well written piece; you can skip the first half but jump back in at the section which introduces some opinions from Greg Sandow. It will be useful for you to take all of this in today in advance of tomorrow’s Adaptistration post.
- Read Holly Mulcahy’s article from 6/6/2011 that lists 10 positive, exciting, encouraging, or just interesting items from the business. As Kasier points out in his article, Muclahy understands that amid the steady flow of Chicken Little Think Tank nonsense, there are real success stories going on. In addition to her lists, she encourages readers to submit additional items.
