Beads, Sculptures, And Baskets: South African Traditional Craft As A Means Of Economic Empowerment, Sasha Kaori Hippard
Independent Study Project (ISP) Collection
The significance of the South African traditional craft industry is often associated with the preservation of historical culture. However, besides being a crucial element in the protection and promotion of cultural heritage, craftwork also can be a significant source of income generation for disadvantaged communities across South Africa. The African Art Centre, a non-profit organization located in Durban, reaches out to various communities of disadvantage in and around the KwaZulu Natal province, holding training and design workshops, providing access to craft skills and materials, and providing a market for the sale of craft as a source of sustainable economic empowerment ...

The Bias Against Creativity: Why People Desire But Reject Creative Ideas, 2012 University of Pennsylvania
The Bias Against Creativity: Why People Desire But Reject Creative Ideas, Jennifer S. Mueller, Shimul Melwani, Jack A. Goncalo
People often reject creative ideas, even when espousing creativity as a desired goal. To explain this paradox, we propose that people can hold a bias against creativity that is not necessarily overt and that is activated when people experience a motivation to reduce uncertainty. In two experiments, we manipulated uncertainty using different methods, including an uncertainty-reduction prime. The results of both experiments demonstrated the existence of a negative bias against creativity (relative to practicality) when participants experienced uncertainty. Furthermore, this bias against creativity interfered with participants’ ability to recognize a creative idea. These results reveal a concealed barrier that creative ...

Under The Radar: A Study Of Small And Mid-Sized Theatres In The Denver-Metro Area, Andrew Metzroth
Theatre and Dance Graduate Theses & Dissertations
Small and mid-sized theatres have been under-studied compared to their larger counterparts and the regional theatre movement as a whole. Analyzing the context in which small and mid-sized Denver-Metro theatres operate and their day-to-day business practices can provide valuable insight into an often overlooked community. Part I of this thesis explores the environment in which these theatres exist, including discussions of geography, media relations, major granting organizations, the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District, and the future of the Denver-Metro area. Part II uses interviews and financial data to profile a dozen theatres within the Denver-Metro area (including three that have ...
Musicology And Cruisicology : Formal Musical Performance On Cruise Ships 2003-2011, 2012 Southern Cross University
Musicology And Cruisicology : Formal Musical Performance On Cruise Ships 2003-2011, David W. Cashman
The burgeoning cruise industry staged live musical performances daily for the nearly 15 million tourists who undertook a cruise in 2010. These performances play important roles in the integrated cruise leisure product, such as controlling guest movement, encouraging consumption and portraying the cruise line as it wishes to be portrayed. Performances also provide reassurances of familiarity and safety regardless of the location of the cruise ship. Such performances contribute to the experience of a cruise thereby contributing to the profitability of the industry. The documentation and manner and method of musical implementation aboard cruise ships form the focus of this ...
Museums, Leadership, And Transfer: An Inquiry Into Organizational Supports For Learning Leadership, 2012 Antioch University - PhD Program in Leadership and Change
Museums, Leadership, And Transfer: An Inquiry Into Organizational Supports For Learning Leadership, Julie I. Johnson
Dissertations & Theses
Given the rapid changes that 21st century museums must manage, flexible thinking about leadership forms and purposes is needed. Today's complex leadership landscape necessitates that staff engage in enacting leadership with positional leaders. Limited empirical literature exists that describes how the next generation of museum leaders is being nurtured and developed. The purpose of this study was to: describe museum professionals' perceptions of leadership practices; investigate museums as sites of organizational and leadership learning; and consider the experiences of museum professionals who have participated in leader development programs. The study involved an on-line survey with 310 professionals working in ...
Rationalising Public Service: Scheduling As A Tool Of Management In Rté Television, 2011 Dublin Institute of Technology
Rationalising Public Service: Scheduling As A Tool Of Management In Rté Television, Ann-Marie Murray
Developments in the media industry, notably the increasing commercialisation of broadcasting and deregulation, have combined to create a television system that is now driven primarily by ratings. Public broadcast organisations must adopt novel strategies to survive and compete in this new environment, where they need to combine public service with popularity. In this context, scheduling has emerged as the central management tool, organising production and controlling budgets, and is now the driving force in television. Located within Weber’s theoretical framework of rationalisation, this study analyses the rise of scheduling as part of a wider organisational response to political and ...

Research Collection Lee Kong Chian School Of Business
A recent study showed that people evaluate products more positively when they are physically associated with art images than similar non-art images. Neuroimaging studies of visual art have investigated artistic style and esthetic preference but not brain responses attributable specifically to the artistic status of images. Here we tested the hypothesis that the artistic status of images engages reward circuitry, using event-related functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) during viewing of art and non-art images matched for content. Subjects made animacy judgments in response to each image. Relative to non-art images, art images activated, on both subject- and item-wise analyses, reward-related ...

An Investigation Into How Greater Financial Stability Can Be Achieved For Portugal’S National Museums Under Management Of The Portuguese Institute Of Museums And Conservation (Imc), Luis Ramos Pinto
The European sovereign debt crisis has led to considerable cuts in public funding for the arts.

Transitions To A New Museum: An Examination Of The Factors That Lead Museums Toward Education As An Institution Priority, Tanya Tobias-Tomis
Master of Arts in Liberal Studies (MALS) Student Scholarship
This essay discusses how changes to state and federal funding, increasing competition from non-museum arts organizations and a desire to strengthen, build and diversify audiences encouraged museums to position education as an institutional priority. These factors combined with an intensifying frustration about a lack of professional standards and growing criticism of the field, encouraged museum educators to develop and adopt new, more effective ways of engaging audiences. This essay also explores how and why museums universally adopted Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS) to better position themselves to compete for participation and funding. This essay concludes with several suggestions, or a plan ...

Nerve Endings: Betty Parsons, Marcia Tucker, And Alanna Heiss, Cyndi Conn
Master of Arts in Liberal Studies (MALS) Student Scholarship
When initially presented, new forms of art and installation can incite hostility and derision among art patrons, critics, and general audiences. New paradigms are unsettling and artistic breakthroughs can threaten belief systems people hold dear to their understanding of the art world and how it functions. Some of the most distinguished and iconic artists in modem history have found notoriety and recognition through years, even decades, of slowly evolving acceptance into the cultural mainstream.
