About the Author
Based in Kirkland, Washington, Alan Harrison is a writer and speaker specializing in nonprofit arts organizations, strategy, and life politics. His blog posts appear regularly in major publications, including ArtsJournal. For 30 years, Alan Harrison has explored the relationships between the arts and the community on behalf of nonprofit arts organizations across the United States.
Alan has a rare combination of talents - he understands the arts as well as he understands the business of arts organizations. He is an expert non-profit manager and a natural marketer.--Dianne Loeb, Advising/Special Projects, ADCo; Former Board Member, Seattle Repertory Theatre
In the years that I have known Alan, I have learned more about running arts organizations, particularly if not exclusively not-for-profit arts organizations, than most people learn in a two- or three-year MA arts administration program -- and as I've taught in one such program, I can actually compare his skills to curricula and confirm that Alan is, indeed, a master class in his field. Alan's very popular contributions to The Clyde Fitch Report (a website that committed acts of journalism at the crossroads of arts and politics from 2012 to 2019, now on hiatus) were a joy to edit and one of the CFR's secret weapons. His persuasive writing skills, often rooted in the superlative use of inductive logic, are one more testimonial beyond the million other reasons why you should offer him a leadership position at your organization not tomorrow, not someday, but today. Alan has my highest endorsement -- and gratitude for all the guidance and mentorship through the years.--Leonard Jacobs, Executive Director, Jamaica Center for Arts & Learning
