Description
  • Job title as it applies to a fashion/luxury goods company (different from a performance/production company e.g., Theatre, Dance, Symphony, etc.)
  • An Artistic Director is the executive of an arts organization, particularly in a theatre company, that handles the organization's artistic direction. He or she is generally a producer and director, but not in the sense of a mogul, since the organization is generally a non-profit organization. The Artistic Director of a theatre company is the individual with the overarching artistic control of the theatre's production choices, directorial choices, and overall artistic vision. In smaller theatres, the Artistic Director may be the founder of the theatre and the primary director of its plays. In larger non-profit theatres the Artistic Director may be appointed by the board of directors. The Artistic Director of a theatre is similar to the Musicial Director of a symphony, the primary person responsible for planning a theatre's season. The Artistic Director's responsibilities can include but are not limited to choosing the material staged in a season, the hiring of creative/production personnel, and other theatre management tasks. He or she may also direct productions for the company.
