The exciting field of arts management prepares students to become leaders, managers, and integral members of arts organizations. The College of Charleston is one of the few schools in the Southeast and the only school in South Carolina to offer undergraduate study with a major and a minor in Arts Management and Administration.

The College's program is uniquely situated in an environment with an active arts community. This provides students numerous opportunities for internships, career networking, and participation in special projects.

Little Stranger, a duo started by Arts Management alum John Shields '12, will donate 100% of the funds raised to S.O.U.L.

Soul Power offers music education and production training to youth and adults in Charleston and operates "Building Blocks," its international partnership with IQRA Muslim Bilingual Academy in Dakar, Senegal.

Today’s highlight is the recipient of the JULIE JETT ARTS MANAGEMENT CITIZENSHIP AWARD. This very special memorial award was established in 2004 in honor of an outstanding graduate of the Arts Management Program who tragically passed away shortly after graduation in 2003. The Arts Management faculty and Julie’s parents instituted this award to recognize one student each year who embodies the characteristics that Julie was recognized for: a student who has made significant contributions to the College and the community through the field of arts management. We are pleased to announce that MILLER ARANT is this year’s recipient.⠀

Miller has dedicated his college career not only to achievement in the classroom but also to service of his fellow students and community. His impact is most significantly felt on the Arts Management Program’s student-run record label, 1770 Records. Miller has been involved with the organization since his sophomore year and became co-president of the group in his senior year. In that time, Miller dedicated his free time to helping fellow students learn skills like music promotion and graphic design and to helping local musicians access opportunities for live performances and music releases. His legacy will be the deeply embedded connections he built between aspiring musicians and students at the College with the broader music community in Charleston that have helped to create learning opportunities for students in the Arts Management Program. Congratulations, Miller! We are so proud of you!

Our Alumni Spotlight Week concludes today with words from Arts Management alum, Gage Baxter '15, who is the Major Gifts Officer for the Belmont University Performing Arts Center and the College of Music and Performing Arts in Nashville.⠀

"Fellow Cougars, ⠀

Wishing you all best of luck on your exams during these uncertain times. Please know that alumni all over the country are rooting for you. ⠀

To the graduating seniors: You all are resilient and certainly understand the Greek phrase inscribed at Porter’s Lodge, "Know Thyself” better than anyone. While your final semester has been challenging, your hard work matters, and will set you apart as you close your undergraduate chapter. We are inspired by your work ethic and ability to bat down any obstacles, viruses included, that come your way. Finally, we look forward to welcoming you as College of Charleston alumni very soon.⠀

Good luck, and go Cougars!⠀


Today's words of encouragement are from Arts Management alum, Kiana Kim '15. Kiana is the Director of Production at the Charleston Gaillard Center.⠀

"We are all creatives in this industry we've chosen to be a part of. We share a love for art, partnership, and most importantly community. In this time of uncertainty, please know that you are not alone in your fears or anxieties. Remember that this pandemic has not taken away our ability to empathize. Check in with your loved ones frequently. Check in with yourself frequently. As a community of creatives, I know we all have it in us to progress and overcome the obstacles ahead of us. ⠀

"I encourage you all to dream. Invest in your ideas and don't be afraid to share them. Arts organizations around the world need your creativity and your ideas! Take advantage of this time and reach out to organizations you're interested in. Research the careers you maybe see yourself in and ask questions! Ask yourself, "What is the dream and how do I get there?" Invest in relationships and your network will grow! One of the greatest pieces of advice I received while I was a student was to invest in each other. Your classmates will be your biggest advocates when you graduate! You'll celebrate together when you land that dream job or you'll lift each other up when life takes an unexpected turn. Take time to get to know your professors, and if you're lucky enough, they will be a mentor and a friend you'll cherish for life.⠀

“As a former student of The College and an alumni of the Arts Management Program, I know many of you are in the same position I was being a full-time student, working, interning, AND volunteering. I know it may feel impossible to balance it all, but don't forget to cherish this time of growth! You got this! Rooting for you all and know that I am in your corner! Lots of love -- Kiana"

Today's words of encouragement are from Arts Management alum, GP McLeer '10. GP is the Mayor of Fountain Inn, SC, and the Executive Director of the SC Arts Alliance.⠀

"Don’t lose focus y’all! Regardless of where you are in your collegiate journey, use this time to do four things:⠀

1) Observe: Watch what is happening to the industry right now. Take note of how artists and creative companies pivot, or don’t pivot.⠀

2) Tune Your Voice: In this digital world, you have the ability to work on defining your voice to the outside world (corporate world or personally). Build that personal website, work on the resume, push out some content on your unique takeaways during this time. ⠀

3) Network: Just because the coffee shop isn’t letting you come inside, or happy hours are only happening in your home doesn’t mean you have to stop networking. Folks are more comfortable than ever right now “meeting” and talking virtually. Expand your network during this time as best you can, because, recession or not, you’ll have to lean on that network after graduation.⠀

4) Get Creative: As you’re watching how this industry reacts to this global pandemic, find avenues for innovation and creative solutions. There will be a demand for the industry to pivot long term - whether it's making operations go digital, or finding ways to monetize digital engagement in the arts. Use your voice and your network and maybe you’ll find a unique opportunity for yourself. ⠀

And don’t forget to find a creative outlet for yourself during this time! ⠀

Stay strong, Cougars and let us know how we can help!"
