Shanghai Conservatory of Music LEADERSHIP TRAINING CROSS-CULTURAL TRAINING FOR ARTS MANAGEMENT Shanghai, China. 2008 & 2012.

In both 2008 and most recently in the summer of 2012, MVPA was hired by the renowned Shanghai Conservatory of Music to present a week-long Arts Administration training for both Conservatory students and local arts professionals. The result was a series of intensive lectures and workshops that covered the history of theatrical design and architecture (Ancient Greek and Roman, Asian, African and European), strategic issues in theater planning, and financial and business issues and best practices- and also offered hands-on case work designed to give the students an opportunity to put their training into theoretical practice. Geared towards the graduate and professional-level student, the training was structured to accommodate a range of (prospective) jobs and arts disciplines.

MVPA’s most recent program was met with great enthusiasm and we are currently in discussion to return again to Shanghai for multiple visits in order to cultivate a more in depth course of study.
