People managing the arts need to be well connected - not just to books as
sources of ideas, information and intelligence, but also to websites and
organisations that exist to support our practice, and in related areas that
we can learn from and share practice with.
Here you will find links to the many specialist organisations that support
arts and arts management practice within an art form, or a specialist area
such as arts and health, or support cpd (continuing professional
development) in a region.
Do you know where to go to get the information that you need?
Have you found the professional magazines that support arts management
practice? Are you signed up for the free Arts News service from Arts Council
England? Do you know Arts Research Digest? Have you used the KSAM site? Do
you keep an eye on training courses, events and publications from the
Directory of Social Change? Do you use the information available on
employment matters from ACAS?
This section aims to keep you well-connected. The information is shared
between SAM's Books, KSAM - Knowledge Services for Arts Management, and All
Ways Learning. See the KSAM site for more useful information on all
the topics covered by SAM's Books main booklist, and see All Ways Learning's
site for more on understanding learning, arts management explored,
governance and boards, and organisations.
There is also information here about arts management as a career - because
we found that there was so little out there about it.
