The power of people: organisational psychology for the arts August 2011
3.30-7.00pm, Monday 29 August 2011
Australia Council, 372 Elizabeth Street, Surry Hills
People are the key to the success of any organisation. This is particularly true in the arts sector –
an industry that enjoys the benefits of a community that cares passionately about its work,
even if it doesn’t always enjoy the benefits of big budgets.
SAMAG thinks the topic of Organisational Psychology in the arts sector is so important that
we’re breaking with our standard format and offering an intensive afternoon seminar
on understanding people and their potential.
The session will cover motivation and productivity, learning and growth, working with
groups and teams, and the impact of and solutions to stress. The session is geared
toward all arts workers, be they from volunteer groups to major institutions.
The session will be run by Eliza Muldoon, an awarded lecturer at the School of Art
History and Art Education within the College of Fine Arts (COFA).
Eliza’s fascination with processes and people led her to a Bachelor of Science,
Psychology (hons) degree. She now indulges this fascination as an awarded lecturer
at the School of Art History and Art Education within the College of Fine Arts (COFA)
and also recently at the Australian Film Television and Radio School (AFTRS).
In addition, Eliza is the founder and director of artsinterview.com, a new web resource
dedicated to the discussion of Australian arts workers organisational practices and experiences.
Eliza’s various professional ventures explore the interaction of art and psychology and
their combined potential to influence the development of individual, community and arts industry wellbeing.
