Arts Manager International partners with governments, foundations, and other funders worldwide to train and support executive, artistic, and board leadership in their cities or regions of interest.


These two-year group intensives provide in-person group training, web-based master classes, and one-on-one, on-site consultation with each participating organisation.

Subjects include:

  • Artistic planning

  • Programmatic and institutional marketing

  • Fundraising

  • Board development

  • Financial planning

  • Strategic planning

  • Technology management

  • Audience development and outreach


Arts Manager International's intensives focus on a “cycle” of best practices that foster the development of bold, transformational art; aggressive marketing; and energized patrons who support future programming. When repeated year after year, this cycle defines organisational stability.


Capacity Building Intensives have been mounted in Croatia, England, Ireland, Trinidad & Tobago, and Vietnam.
