The Arts Manager operates with a highly interdisciplinary method and is intended to be a fundamental figure in the activities of public and private institutions, with many areas of professional application. With this Arts Management - IED Rome Master, the Istituto Europeo Di Design (IED) - in Italy and Spain will form a central figure for the life of cultural institutions, engaged in art project management, capable of identifying innovative content, of structuring a comprehensive event schedule, of planning and developing fundraising events and resource management.
The partnership with major cultural institutions, including Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi, MIBAC, Federculture and Peggy Guggenheim Collection, ensures that students will have the most renowned teachers and a unique experience in the field.
This study path is opened to graduates in humanities and artistic fields coming from all over the world who want to develop their artistic knowledge through a study-tour that touches the main Italian artistic cities. Participants will complete their educational pathway studying subjects and institutions related to the management of the artistic and cultural world.
The Master in Arts Management is divided into two operational modules, characterised by a distinct course of study in relation to the city in which it takes place, each involving an examination and a final project. Some of the subjects of the course cut across the modules, while others are specific and unique to each location.
The Master is held in partnership with the Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi in Florence, the MIBAC (Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities) in Rome and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice.
At the end of the course, students will be ready to work in arts and cultural companies and institutions (e.g. museums, foundations, galleries, festivals, auction houses), in the so-called cultural sectors (national and international cultural institutions, profit and nonprofit), in areas related to contemporary art and with large enterprises investing in the cultural market (banks, insurance companies, banking institutions, event management companies, trade fair organisations, art foundations, exhibition production companies, or companies operating in the communication world).
FLORENCE - Design of exhibitions and events
The Florence module focuses on developing specific skills to manage the different organisational phases of a Cultural event: from the design to the identification of partners and sponsors, to communication management and content creation. As a group, with the support of teachers and the course coordinator, students will plan and create one or more cultural events with real clients.
ROME - Art Direction: focus on festivals
The goal of this module is to develop a new approach to artistic heritage management. The Masterís semester in Rome combines the huge culture that the city plays at international level with the vivacity of the backgrounds that characterise its urban culture. With the support of new technologies, students will explore possible cultural convergences that stimulate interest and participation.
VENICE - 1 week Workshop
In partnership with the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, students will participate in a one-week workshop in Venice. They will visit the main institutions and meet the professionals of the Peggy Guggenheim.
The Peggy Guggenheim Collection is one of the most important museums in Italy for European and American art from the first half of the Twentieth century. It is located in the home of the famous collector Peggy Guggenheim, at Palazzo Venier dei Leoni on the Grand Canal in Venice.
