MANAGEMENT AS A VISUAL AND/OR PERFORMING ART

Description
MANAGEMENT AS A VISUAL AND/OR PERFORMING ART

Facilitator: Professor Malcolm Gillies


Professor Malcolm Gillies studied piano and violin at the Royal College of Music in London, later gaining a PhD in musical analysis from the University of London and a higher doctorate in musicology from the University of Melbourne. He later became the president of two London universities: City and London Metropolitan.


Professor Gillies has wide interests and experience in the arts and education, including questions of assessment, curriculum and pedagogy, careers and community engagement. He has an extensive list of publications, with a particular focus on the works of Bella Bartok and Percy Grainger, and was for many year an arts and education commentator in the Australian and British press.

Synopsis:

Normally we, in the visual and performing arts, focus on what we can learn from management studies. But this presentation looks at the topic the other way around. Professor Gillies will touch on what the visual and performing arts can teach management students and practitioners, for instance, in developing management skills, in executing their business professionally, in being creative and entrepreneurial. The visual and performing arts teach important skills concerning physical presence and affective expression that are often needed in managing businesses. And they educate, not for conformity, but for encouraging diversity of expression, and creativity of output – the very basis of an entrepreneurial mindset. Do effective leaders in society ultimately need to learn more from what the visual and performing arts have to offer?

* This event is open to all NAFA Staff and Students only.
