“All men can see these tactics whereby I conquer, but what none can see is the strategy out of which victory evolved.”
For many of us the development of a Strategic Plan is an onerous process. If it was not a funding requirement for State and Federal government, most companies probably wouldn’t bother. Sure, a catchy vision statement looks good on a website but does a three-year plan really help the day-to-day operations of a company? How does a document enhance the efficiency, effectiveness or culture of what you do? Is this a case of the business of art be taking itself too seriously?
This February SAMAG is kicking off the year with a practical investigation into the approach and philosophy required to generate an effective strategic plan. As many companies prepare to submit operational funding to Arts NSW and the Australia Council in 2015, this seminar will look at ways your organisation can plan for vibrancy, originality and sustainability without selling your artistic soul.
Come and join a panel of leading thinkers as they communicate their approach to strategic planning. The seminar will be Chaired by the Australia Council’s Executive Director of Arts Funding, Frank Panucci and features Atul Joshi (General Manager of Play Writing Australia) and Sam Peters (Strategic Program Lead, Westpac).
Arts Leadership: A View from Brooklyn with BAM's Joseph V. Melillo
Date: Thursday 26 March 2015
Where: Utzon Room,
Sydney Opera House
Admission: Free (SAMAG members).
After presale to SAMAG members, any remaining tickets will be available to non-members for $40 per seat.
With the generosity of Copyright Agency's Cultural Fund, SAMAG presents a unique opportunity to hear internationally renown arts leader Joe V Melillo, Executive Producer at Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), share his insights from a thirty year career as a leader in the Arts. Under Melillo’s guidance and vision BAM has been transformed from a single site local music academy to a performing arts complex at the vanguard of the Brooklyn Arts Renaissance and the forefront of innovation in the arts and audience engagement around the world.
Ann Mossop, Head of Programs, Sydney Opera House will lead an in-conversation session with Joe to discover how the man widely credited with having ‘written the book’ on audience engagement, respected for creating a destination arts program that still supports emerging art forms and celebrated for his vision and leadership, views leadership in the arts.
