Organizational Aesthetics is about how the five senses and artistry inform business, non-profit, and government organizations.
We mean for both terms, aesthetics and organizational, to be understood broadly to include a range of topics. Examples are the use of arts-based methods in organizations, theoretical accounts of aesthetic phenomena in organizations such as beautiful (or grotesque) leadership, and the art about/in/behind organizations. The content of the journal is organized into four sections: Theory, Practice, Art, and Reviews.
I am proud to be a member of the editorial board, and commend Steven Taylor for his fantastic job in publishing this journal. This is a wonderful resource that helps advance the burgeoning field of Organizational Aesthetics and arts based learning.
