What We Offer
The DeVos Institute of Arts Management provides training, consultation, and implementation support for arts managers and their boards.
Institute leadership and consultants—all arts managers themselves—understand that, in today’s environment, there is no time or resource to waste. Therefore, Institute services are lean, direct, and practical.
The DeVos Institute has designed its services to assist a wide range of institutions, from traditional performing and presenting organizations, museums and galleries, arts schools and libraries, to botanical gardens, glass-making studios, public art trusts, and non-profit cinemas, to name a few. It offers support to individuals, organizations, and—in collaboration with foundations and governments—to communities of organizations throughout the world.
The Institute's customized consultancies address the most pressing challenges facing arts organizations today.
