Such pressure groupings are sometimes called constituencies. The arts administrator’s organization is almost always part of an environment that includes constituencies upon which it is reliant for resources, such as employees, artists and their agents, sponsors, journalists, printers, inspectors and customers. Many of them demand resources in return, and the administrator has constantly to balance and assess the priority, at any given time, of the demands of each constituency. Miles (1980) suggested that, ideally, ‘organizational effectiveness’ could be achieved by satisfying such demands in a manner that minimalizes dependence on them, but continues their support at a level which will ensure longterm effectiveness.

All this builds upon the models we discussed above, but it is still insufficiently sophisticated to take account of the highly complex orientation of arts administrators (and arts bureaucrats). Accordingly, Anderton (1987), in his researches into the work WORK ORIENTATION orientation of cinema managers, followed by work in other arts organizations, added three further categories of orientation to the standard models, making a total of six: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. instrumental orientation career orientation (bureaucratic) unitary orientation (solidaristic) product orientation entrepreneurial orientation practice orientation.

Nor are the five groups by any means separate entities. A good deal of arts administration involves elements of two or more of these. Moreover, each can readily be subdivided. For our purposes, however, the following five models give us a useful analytical tool. The bucolic Bucolic arts administration is usually undertaken by unpaid workers, who feel it incumbent upon them to maintain a cultural tradition in their locality. The planning of village fêtes, carnivals and fairs, Shrove Tuesday galas, carol singing, harvest suppers, choir concerts, Easter parades, community pantomimes, dances, local artists’ shows, flower festivals, storytelling evenings, church organ recitals and well dressing might be the kinds of activities that in Britain we term ‘bucolic’.
