An argument is made that emergency management education specific to arts administrators—with a focus on the benefits and methods of preparedness—is a key step in addressing the issue of motivation and prioritization in emergency planning in the field. Two key learning objectives should be integrated into arts administration curriculum: the ability to create cross-sector community networks for increased resiliency and the ability to identify, and prepare for, modern threats relevant to places of culture. The paper also calls for the academic discipline to leverage practical field-level experiences with research opportunities to further explore what systems, and sub-systems, influence arts organizations’ vulnerabilities to emergency events.
