Careers in Culture – Careers in Cultural Management

> Tools to help you get prepared

“I adore the fluidity of this work – I literally cannot predict what I will be dealing with from one day to the next. What I most recommend for those coming into this career is to follow your passion: the work is too hard and the hours too long to stay in a job you hate. Find out what you most want to support, and find a way to build a life around it.”
- David Cheoros, General Manager, Theatre Network, Edmonton
