Corporate Governance for the Irish Arts Sector free pdf Over the past few years, the Irish arts sector has suffered significant grant cuts, and is braced for more. In this environment, fundraising from various sources (other than the Arts Council) may well be the only way for arts organisations to survive and thrive. Thus, Irish arts organisations will need to become more ready to apply for and to receive funds from private and philanthropic sources. For this, they may require different governance structures, including more transparency and financial accountability. What is clear is that good corporate governance is an enabler for funding. While corporate governance in the arts sector is currently being driven largely by funders, it is increasingly important for arts organisations to be able to demonstrate that they are well run and well governed as a prerequisite for receiving funds. Corporate Governance for the Irish Arts Sector is an invaluable resource for any stakeholder in an Irish arts organisation, from artists, arts administrators and board members to funders, directors and financial advisors alike. *How is a good corporate governance framework defined in the arts sector? *What will be the key benefits of good corporate governance for the arts sector? *In the changing landscape for funding in Ireland, will good corporate governance, transparency and accountability affect funding in the arts sector? *How can arts organisations utilise good corporate governance in order to achieve their funding goals? "In explaining the challenges that arise in applying good governance principles to arts organisations in Ireland, this book gives a comprehensive analysis of all key issues that need to be addressed. Using its guidelines, checklists and 'how to-s' will enable arts bodies to get closer to that virtuous cycle that is to be aspired to: by managing their organisations to good governance standards, they will better achieve their artistic goals and objectives." Terence O'Rourke, Chairman of the Board, Enterprise Ireland- Chair of the Arts Council's 2014 Strategic Review Group
