George Thorn

George Thorn is the co-founder of Arts Action Research, a national arts-consulting group.  As a consultant, he works in all aspects of organizational development as well as making presentations to conferences and workshops.  In parallel with his consulting activities, for eighteen years he directed the graduate program in Arts Administration at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia.  He was the Associate Director of FEDAPT.  Prior to these activities, he was the Executive Vice-President of the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center.  George spent sixteen years in New York where he had a general management firm that managed Broadway, Off-Broadway, and touring companies.  He began his career as a stage manager of Broadway productions.

In 1996, he relocated to Portland, Oregon, to open the West Coast office of Arts Action Research.  In Portland, he has consulted with over two hundred arts and cultural organizations and artists.  The focus of his consulting is the Regional Arts and Cultural Council’s Cultural Leadership Program.  He co-leads RACC’s Art of Leadership, a six-part board training program.
