ARTS ADMINISTRATOR IN THE US

An arts administrator (or manager) oversees the running of tours and events from a marketing and business perspective. You will be organising projects and different activities, which may sound like an event manager, but this job is only in the arts industry. The kind of areas you might find yourself working in are arts festivals, theatres, dance groups, galleries, local authorities, museums and community projects.

What you’ll be doing is making sure that the programmes and art all run perfectly, which includes being involved in the funding, staffing, and administrative duties too. More specifically, your responsibilities as an arts administrator will be planning and controlling the minor details of events, handling budgets, promoting content, and making all kinds of arrangements.

If you’re an international graduate who’s passionate about art and has excellent time management skills, then consider this in your work search!
