Current students, active professionals and alumni now have a new online discussion tool in the form of the Bolz Center for Arts Administration's IdeaPortal.

"The Bolz Center has always been a 'center' of discussion on high-level issues in arts management. The IdeaPortal is one way of carrying that discussion into the online world," says Bolz Center director Andrew Taylor.

Other recent initiatives at the center:

  • "Frames of Reference" is a series of roundtable discussions around the country for high-level managers in the arts. The first is scheduled for Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., Friday, Oct. 26.
  • Bolz Center Public Lecture Series, two keynotes Friday, Nov. 2, will touch on issues directly relevant to Madison's Overture Center development.
