Successful Relationship Development: Building a Positive Relationship between a Performing Arts Center and Its Internal and External Communities
MetadataShow full item record
Over the past few years, performing arts centers have come to be regarded as having an important role in improving a community. But how can a performing arts center operate effectively and efficiently, playing this expected role? In this research project, I explore the relationship development processes of the Portland Center for the Performing Arts with its resident companies and the general public community. In addition, I locate literature related to the key themes included in relationship development. Through analyzing literature from previous studies and collected information from the case study site, I present the findings to answer my sub-research questions and I summarize unexpected findings from the case study. At the end, I provide recommendations to future leaders of performing arts centers for building positive relationships with resident companies and the general public community.
