What We're Reading: Commensurate with Experience
"It’s no coincidence that every administrative arts worker I know is burnt out," said author Benjamin Akio Kimitch. "We all know how hard and underpaid the work is, but we want to make our own contributions to the community that inspires us, so when we imagine making a change, our dreams are generally about the devil we know."
Kitmitch discusses similarities in the encounters between artist and administrator, and how, "the desire for change reverberates through all of us who together create, perform, fundraise, amplify, administer, buy tickets, and donate money."
"I hope there is still time for us to slow down. To acknowledge what we share. To care for each other."
