Careers in Arts Administration

By Emily Salazar

Arts Administration is also referred to as Arts Management. It is a field that involves business operations at an arts or cultural arts organization, which could be a non-profit or for-profit facility. The term “arts” covers a wide variety of fields. Some of these include: ballet, auction houses, art, music, film and theater, photography, opera, music and art festivals. An Arts Administrator could work in a variety of settings, such as: theaters, art galleries, museums, dance companies, community arts organizations, and many more. The role of an Arts Administrator may include: managing a staff and budget, marketing, public relations, fundraising, strategic planning, and program development. A senior level Arts Administrator may advise the Board of Directors or other senior managers. The Arts Administrator should also be knowledgeable about local, state, and federal public policy as well as human resources, labor laws, and risk management.

Van transportation will be provided, but you MUST RSVP BY NOON on Monday, September 19 if you want to attend and ride with us.

We will depart SEU at 9am sharp. You MUST RSVP for this event (even if you will not ride with us) since this is a high security facility, and I am REQUIRED to submit full names of all attendees.

Please read carefully:

  1. RSVP with your full name and ID number.

  3. I am required to submit the list to Baylor for their security, so you NEED to be certain that you are attending.
  4. If you RSVP and back out, this may result in your exclusion in being eligible for future tours.
  5. This date is during weekend two of ACL Festival – pay attention to your calendar.
  6. I cannot excuse you from classes, so you will also need to talk to your faculty members about missing class if you plan on attending.

Apprentice Austin Mentoring Program

The primary purpose of Apprentice Austin is to develop tomorrow’s young professionals and the future leaders of Austin. Since Austin is one of the most desirable cities in the country to live, it is difficult for recent grads to find work in such a competitive environment. Through Apprentice Austin, we hope too not only find each of these students jobs in Austin upon graduation, but give them the expertise, insights, and connections to have a successful career in their field of interest.

Students from across Austin area colleges (Austin Community College, Concordia, Huston-Tillotson, St. Edward's, Texas State, The University of Texas, Southwestern) will be selected for this cohort of Apprentices. Mentors will be selected based on the needs of the selected Apprentices. Selection criteria may include employer, industry, job title, alma mater, and community engagement.

Apprentices will meet their mentors at the Apprentice Austin Kickoff held each Fall. Mentors give 1 hour every other week to their apprentices (based upon calendar availability) to help guide the student on career development, make contacts/network in Austin and beyond, and offer general work and community awareness. Apprentices and Mentors are encouraged to meet a minimum of 6 times in person throughout the Fall and Spring semester.
