This paper examines how to support the creative vitality of small arts organizations. It incorporates the Multiple Case Narrative on arts administrators at 13 selected small arts organizations and cross-references it with an in-depth case study on an emerging theatre. Highlighting the significant role of SAOs in the arts world, it explores the dynamic ecology of SAOs by focusing on the three key levers that move SAOs along the balancing point between their mission and their money in order for them to maintain their creative vitality: (1) Leadership/Entrepreneurship, (2) Technology, and (3) Support Systems. Conclusively, emphasizing that size consideration for arts organizations is of utmost importance for the creative vitality of SAOs, this paper suggests appropriate and affordable ways to support SAOs so that they can sustain themselves in the challenging environment of the arts world.
