Presentation for #wma09 in San Diego as part of
Session D1 "Sustainable Work Practices: Keeping the Staff Afloat" -- In difficult economic times how do you keep the staff sustained and on board? This session looks at alternative staffing models including part time work, job sharing, working from home, as well as the problem of burn out. In addition, staff spends time texting, on the internet and cell phones. Should this multitasking be incorporated into the work day? When and how much is acceptable? Are these ways of working models for the future? Moderator: Rosalind Bedell, Human Resources and Volunteer Director,
Nevada Museum of Art; Presenters: Valerie Nelson, Director, Human Resources, Autry National Center; James G. Leventhal, Director of Development & Marketing, Judah L. Magnes Museum; Attorney, Fisher & Phillips LLP.

  1. 1. weisure blending of work and fun
  2. 3. <ul><li>Many who haven't already abandoned the 9-to-5 workday for the 24-7 life of weisure probably will do so soon, according to New York University sociologist Dalton Conley, who coined the word. It's the next step in the evolving work-life culture. </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;Increasingly, it's not clear what constitutes work and what constitutes fun,&quot; be it &quot;in an office or at home or out in the street,&quot; Conley said. Activities and social spaces are becoming work-play ambiguous, he says, as &quot;all of these worlds that were once very distinct are now blurring together.” </li></ul><ul><li>updated 10:27 a.m. EDT, Mon May 11, 2009 </li></ul><ul><li>(Source: Http://www.cnn.com/2009/LIVING/worklife/05/11/weisure/) </li></ul>

  4. 5. CULTURAL entrepreneurship
  5. 6. <ul><li>&quot;Everyone's a critic,&quot; the saying goes. Today, &quot;Everyone's an artist&quot; is even more true. People in rural areas and big cities alike are making art of all kinds. They sing in church choirs, play musical instruments, celebrate their heritage through traditional folk dance and explore different cultures by cooking ethnic cuisines. They perform in improv troupes, grab the mike at poetry slams and take acting classes. They utilize the internet to publish essays and memoirs (blogs), compose stream-of-consciousness, free-form haikus of their daily lives (tweets) and distribute their handcrafted videos to audiences worldwide (YouTube). They are savvy curators, amassing vast music collections, photo galleries and libraries--housing them on their laptops and smart phones. </li></ul><ul><li>If the research tells us that attendance for &quot;Big Box&quot; arts is down, but informal art-making is up, what does that portend for a traditional, sit-and-watch art form like theatre? </li></ul><ul><li>Perhaps a very dire future indeed, unless we can plug into the pulse of creative energy inspiring millions of Americans to become arts-makers themselves. Can we see our audiences as fellow artists and actively engage them in our work, appealing more directly to their desire for creative expression? </li></ul><ul><li>If we can excite these audience-creators, offering them a chance to satisfy their own impulse to actively engage with art, we stand a chance of sparking a new era of connectivity with our audiences and revived relevance in the larger culture. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Executive Director's Note: If Everyone's an Artist …” by Brad Erickson, Theatre Bay Area </li></ul><ul><li>(sourece: http://www.theatrebayarea.org/mag/article.jsp?thispage=mag.jsp&id=515 ) </li></ul>
