‘Need a New Way of Working? How About the Old Way?’

From an article on ARTSblog:

What if becoming ‘more corporate’ has made arts organizations risk-averse, inflexible, less accessible, and rather stodgy places to work? What if it has grinded down the edges that once gave arts enterprises character and made them distinguishable from one another? And what if some arts organizations have transformed into entities more suited to raising money for their core purposes than to fulfilling them?

Anyone who’s worked in a corporation knows that becoming “more corporate” — whether you’re talking about theater or the government — is never a good thing.
