- Self evaluation using the Auspicious Arts Incubator’s 92 question checklist
The Auspicious Arts Incubator looks to empower cultural groups, arts organisations, and arts entrepreneurs with the business know-how, skills, and tools to help them develop sustainable practices and thrive in the competitive arts market.
Auspicious Arts has devised a comprehensive survey of 92 questions designed as a checklist to see if you have the skills it takes to run a small arts business.
As an arts industry worker embarking on a business journey at CQU this year, I thought this would be an ideal survey to complete to identify my strengths and weaknesses. Here is a link to my results:
As my journey into the world of accounting progresses, I will revisit the survey results and update this blog post and reevaluate what I know and still need to know. In addition, this list may end up growing as I find new skills that will be helpful to running a successful small arts business.
I would like to acknowledge the fact that my blog title suggests there could be 88 points in this self evaluation, however there are 92 markers in the Auspicious Arts Incubator’s skills to running a successful arts business. To be honest, I couldn’t think of a good title using ’92’, and I can’t resist the opportunity to Photoshop image montages: putting normal people’s heads (in this case mine) on a famous person’s body. I simply can’t.
