This October, several students and faculty from FSU’s Arts Administration and Theatre Management programs traveled to Minneapolis, MN, to present papers at the Social Theory, Politics, and the Arts (STP&A) International Conference.
FSU presenters at the STP&A International Conference included Department of Art Education Doctoral students Boyie Kim, Ivory Lucas, and Juyeon Song. In addition, a Masters student in the Music Arts Administration program, Alex Hinand, and alumna Julia Grissett presented at the conference. Lastly, College of Fine Arts Faculty, Dr. Anthony Rhine, and Dr. Antonio C. Cuyler also presented papers. This year’s theme was “built around the multiple disruptive roles of the arts in foreseeing and responding to political dysfunction, in fostering Schumpeterian entrepreneurial advancement, and in reflecting the need for and enabling the attainment of positive social change.” Within these parameters, our students and faculty presented sessions on topics that included funding, tourism, social change, festivals, financial management, and early exposure to arts education.
The Department of Art Education is pleased to have such an outstanding representation from FSU at one of the premier conferences of its kind in the world! The 2017 conference marked the 43rd annual conference, hosting many arts management and cultural policy researchers. This conference attracts participants from a wide array of disciplines both within the arts and beyond. The significant presence of FSU researchers indicates the University’s commitment to advancing the field of Arts Administration!
