ARTS 778 - Seminar in Project Management
Seminar in Project Management
The primary goal of this course is to offer students a step-by-step investigation into how to develop and successfully carry out a socially engaged, public art project. Its secondary aim is to critically compare and contrast traditional forms of organizing with experimental institutional forms. The class will cover such things as NGOs and 501(c)3 not-for-profit corporations, as well as cooperative alternative spaces, participatory public projects and informal inter-disciplinary art collectives and coalitions. This pragmatic and critical approach to contemporary administrative practices will be approached using a combination of select readings and class discussions, guest lectures presenting tutorials, and a practicum that draws together all phases of the seminar including concept development, budget preparation, grant writing, and networking focused on a specific, social practice project initiated by either individual students working alone or students collaborating in small groups.
