Michael Kaiser’s Arts in Crisis Symposium
Michael Kaiser has been called “the turnaround king” because of his success with several arts organizations, including the Kansas City Ballet, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, American Ballet Theater, and London’s Royal Opera House. Indeed, his 2008 book is titled The Art of the Turnaround: Creating and Maintaining Healthy Arts Organizations. In this article from June 2010 he explains, among other things, his 10 commandments of how to create and maintain healthy arts organizations. His comments are a good reminder to us all and worth revisiting here.
