Online Workshop: Managing for Success in Public Art

Examine the strategies and best practices that make it possible for cultural planners, artists and communities to achieve long-term positive impacts on public life and public policy.

In this workshop, you will:

  • Gain a greater understanding of the types of approaches artists employ
  • Learn how to structure a program and project to achieve the right fit between community aspirations, public benefit and artistic practice
  • Learn how to build effective relationships, best practices, and advocacy/communication strategies that achieve success from the perspectives of artists, construction project managers, elected officials, public agency directors, citizen activists and art administrators.

Case studies offer models for how to integrate artists’ ideas and influence public understanding in a range of civic projects including wastewater utility infrastructure, rural bridge construction and a regional trail system.

This workshop is designed to fill the gap between a typical short webinar and a longer online course. Each workshop is led by an international expert, combines lectures and small group discussion, and meets online for two (2) hours, once a week for three weeks. There is also an online discussion board for sharing information and group discussion during the three weeks.  There is no grading.
