Name this job! My friend works a variety of skilled odd jobs in the arts, for wont of a better term. She needs help naming what it is that she does.

She does a lot of short term jobs, in which she helps organise cultural or arts events, doing logistics, marketing, grant writing, book keeping etc. Artists will hire her to help them produce/project manage their installations. Non-profit arts organisations get her on board to figure out processes and file management and manage their accounts. She stage manages at festivals and manages tours for artists and musicians.
What she does is so diverse and varied that she has a hard time identifying her job. So far, we've come up with "creative logistics", although googling that term came up with a bunch of courier/freight companies.
Is there an existing term that would describe what she does? If not, can you come up with one? She's kind of a consultant, producer, project manager for artists, musicians, festivals and non-profits. But that's too wordy for a business card!
