Are arts managers their own enemy when it comes to intercultural development? Insights from the #interculturalmanagers workshop
This first workshop of the new network “Cultural Managers as Intercultural Brokers” took place 15-17 January 2017 at Heilbronn University, Germany. Its highly renowned international participants examined the role that arts and cultural managers can play in handling the challenges of globalisation. And they discussed the question how arts management is influenced by certain worldviews and how this in turn influences the fulfilment of its tasks in international contexts, and thereby shed light on the sometimes self-inflicted barriers for fostering intercultural understanding.

For centuries, education was the privilege of an elite. Partly thanks to the internet, access to education has entered a process of democratisation. More people are educated and therefore more people go to museums. But in the meantime, expectations have changed: the public is looking for a social and an entertaining experience rather than an intellectual visit. The new Communicating The Museum (CTM) conference unites scholars, communication experts, fundraisers, and scientists to share genuine education programmes from all around the world to discuss the theme "The Power of Education". The conference is in Paris from 19th - 22nd June 2017. The deadline of all speaker applications ends on 3rd March 2017.
