Arts Management Clusters  
The Programme emphasises a balance of theoretical and practice-based learning, and is designed within a framework of four required clusters of study:

  • Academic skills, Communications and Research
Level 1

In this foundational course, you will be introduced to basic theories in aesthetics, and examine the meaning of art specifically in the context of Southeast Asia, as well as other parts of Asia and the West, as appropriate. We will investigate the question of what is art in the Southeast Asian context, and examine how societies and communities have responded to particular art forms through time, and consider the forces that have shaped these forms and influence artistic practice. Through this process, you will develop a framework of critical approaches towards the arts. The class will include at least 1 to 2 visits to art museums and performances.

Principles of Arts Management 1A (15 CU)

You will be introduced to the planning and decision-making process, management styles and models, basic principles of arts organisations, and the creative dimensions of arts management. Some of the key terms connected to the field of arts management will be introduced and explained (arts, entertainment, creative and cultural industries, etc.).
