About DeVos Institute of Arts Management at the University of Maryland
The DeVos Institute of Arts Management provides training, consultation, and implementation support for arts managers and their boards. It operates on the premise that while much is spent to train artists, too little is spent to support the managers and boards who keep those artists at work. At the same time, rapid changes in technology, demographics, government policy, and the economy have complicated the job of the manager and volunteer trustees. These changes continue to accelerate. Organizations that have mastered these trends are flourishing—even leveraging them to their advantage. For those that have not, however, the sense that “something’s not quite right” can seem unshakable. For too many, these changes have led to less art, decreased visibility, diminished relevance—even financial collapse. These challenges inform the DeVos Institute’s strategy. Never has the need to balance best practices and new approaches been so urgent. Institute leadership and consultants—all arts managers themselves—understand that, in today’s environment, there is no time or resource to waste. Therefore, Institute services are no-nonsense, direct, and practical. The Institute has served more than 1,...000 organizations from over 80 countries since Michael M. Kaiser founded it during his tenure as President of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. While environments, objectives, and disciplines vary, the Institute works with each of its clients and trainees to create, market, and sustain exemplary cultural programs.
