studios for artists and creative businesses

International Arts Manager

International Arts Manager is the leading business magazine for the performing arts industry worldwide. 

With subscribers in Hong Kong, Toronto, New York, Los Angeles, Sydney, Johannesburg, and London, it is a hub of conversation for professionals working in opera, dance, theatre, circus and classical music, as well as the architects, sound experts, and stage designers and technicians building the venues of the future. 

IAM is owned by Lewis Business Media, based in East Sussex, whilst the editorial team is headed up by Manchester journalist and writer Maria Roberts here at AWOL studios.

Maria and her writers regularly travel to report on the arts: trying out theatre festivals in Sibiu, beer and Beethoven in Barcelona, flamenco in Madrid, conducting competitions in Copenhagen, and dropping in at symphony cycles in Singapore.

For more than 25 years IAM magazine has connected with Arts Councils, Ministries of Culture, European Capital of Culture hosts, and performing arts conferences and membership organisations worldwide to curate a global conversation on the business of the arts.
