In January 2017, the MAAA program is launching a podcast related to all things Arts Administration! The podcast will feature the best arts administration and cultural policy practitioners, students, alumni, and faculty that we can find to bring you wisdom, advice, and stories from the field. We will regularly be uploading episodes to this blog and will keep you up to date whenever a new episode arrives.
Today we’re debuting a teaser of the podcast to serve as an example of what to expect in the future. This debut episode features SPEA Arts Admin faculty member Dr. Joanna Woronkowicz, interviewed by current MAAA student (although 9 days away from graduating!) Lauren Hall.
Take a listen! Conversation with Dr. Joanna Woronkowicz:
