Approaching an Understanding of Arts and Cultural Managers as Intercultural Brokers

Our current context of internationalisation, globalisation, and the increasing global migration presents challenges and opportunities for the arts and cultural sector. With creative and aesthetic expressions inherently reflective of cultural ideas, knowledge and values, arts and cultural managers have a significant role to play in directing, administering and mediating intercultural understanding. This refers to the ability to know, accept, value, and empathise with alternative perspectives and perceptions of the world.

The A to Z of Arts Management - Upward Management

For years I’ve been an arts manager, an arts board member and an occasional arts management academic. And although there are some great arts management books to both learn from and teach with, they only seldom combine theory and practice, insights of success and failure, and story telling to help people understand how to do their job better. In this series, I introduce a selection of neglected aspects and competencies from my book “The A to Z of Arts Management”. This final chapter is about how leaders in the arts can upwardly manage stakeholders with a powerful impact on their work, and enable staff to upwardly manage their bosses as well.

Arts Management Quarterly No 125: Cooperation and Collaboration in Arts Management

The days of the lonesome artistic genius are already over for a long time. No one working in arts and culture would honestly assume that a creative process can prosper mostly in solitude. Instead, creativity and cooperation respectively collaboration accompany each other. This is also true because arts and cultural processes occur in social contexts and therefore always interact with social groups, whether it be producers, audiences, employees of institutions, sponsors, buyers and so on. Surprisingly for many, the same applies to management. And this is what makes the current issue of Arts Management Quarterly on "cooperation and collaboration" so promising.

Conference review: ENCATC Annual Conference on Cultural Management Education in Risk Societies

The 24th ENCATC Annual Conference "Cultural Management Education in Risk Societies - Towards a Paradigm and Policy Shift?!” took place in Valencia, Spain, from 5–7 October, 2016. The event brought together about 160 academics, researchers and professionals from the cultural sector, policy makers, artists and students from over 30 countries. And with a more focused and application oriented program their debates about the new paradigm needed for cultural management and policy to face today’s risk societies could have in fact been very fruitful and inspiring.

Book preview: Introduction to International Arts Management by Raphaela Henze

"Introduction to International Arts Management", the first book published on this topic in German, deals with the reactions of arts managers in more than 45 countries around the world to globalization and illustrates how arts organizations strive to internationalize not only to increase competitiveness, but also to reach out to an increasingly diverse audience and bring the potential and talent that is inherent in this diversity to the forefront. "Introduction to International Arts Management" strongly advocates for more international transfer and for interdisciplinary networks of academics and practitioners to foster critical discourse about arts management practice and to develop sustainable strategies to deal with increasingly diverse societies.

BBC Advertising report on the relationship between millennials and brands

BBC Advertising just published an international in-depth report on ‘millennials’ and the misconceptions surrounding this highly sought after generation. By conducting over 14,000 interviews across 31 countries and seven markets – Australia, Germany, USA, Canada, India, Singapore and South Africa – the report's findings make it easier for marketers in cultural institutions to target the most attractive and commercially receptive segment within that group. The report titled Reaching Affluent Millennials offers a deeper insight into the difference between ‘affluent’ and ‘non-affluent’ millennials and identifies the most valuable segment, ‘The Supercharged’.

The A to Z of Arts Management - Love

For years I’ve been an arts manager, an arts board member and an occasional arts management academic. And although there are some great arts management books to both learn from and teach with, they only seldom combine theory and practice, insights of success and failure, and story telling to help people understand how to do their job better.

This chapter is about love for ones job and why it is important to be more open to the desires and needs of the people you work with and for.

Arts Management Quarterly No 124: An entirely new Arts Management

Societies worldwide are currently facing far-reaching and often challenging developments. And although every country’s arts sector has its peculiarities, these developments influence most countries and thereby their art sector as well. So, what can arts managers do to make the best of new circumstances and to help the societies we live in handle them? How can we use the arts' inherent creative potential to anticipate the changes that will come? What competencies and knowledge will we need in the future to fulfill our tasks? The approaches in the new issue of Arts Management Quarterly on "an entirely new Arts Management" want to find answers to this questions.
