Arts management courses to empower local artists in Mexico-City

For this interview, our correspondent Lisa Harborth talked to Marcela Jiménez López, the Subdirector of Mexico City’s program Small Cultural Enterprises. It was started ten years ago to support local artists in building up their own enterprises. The program teaches general knowledge in arts management and supports artists in building up their own enterprises. Small Cultural Enterprises thereby compensates the lack of management education during artistic studies in university. In 2016 alone, over 250 artists participated in the program.

Research Results on the Work Routines of Arts/ Cultural Managers in International Contexts

This article presents the results of a research on the opinions of arts/ cultural managers around the world regarding their profession, working conditions, current challenges, required competencies, and training opportunities. From a Western perspective it seems like cultural management is well established as a profession and as an academic discipline with a profound body of knowledge and strategies that seem to be similar all over the world. Moreover, due to an increasing amount of cultural cooperation beyond borders, working practises in arts and cultural management seem to become universal. But is cultural management getting harmonized due to cultural globalization? Or are concepts and practices of cultural management more influenced by the specific national or regional conditions?

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.

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.

CfP: 9th Midterm Conference of the RN-Sociology of the Arts - Arts Management Studies Research Stream

The 9th Midterm Conference of the Research Network Sociology of the Arts and Creativity on "Working on Identity and Differences" will take place September 8th-10th 2016 it the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, University of Porto, Portugal. Co-organizers are the European Sociological Association and the Thematic Section Art, Culture and Communication of the Portuguese Association of Sociology. The ESA Research Network Sociology of the Arts aims to provide the sociological contexts for understanding the multifaceted and interwoven aspects which characterize the art worlds in societies nowadays. The general topic of this Conference "Art and Creativity – Working on Identity and Difference" questions the processes through which in an increasingly global, open, different and multicultural world artistic creativity is (re)defined, fostered, evaluated and asserted. The Arts Management Studies Research Stream workshops will support the conference theme by focusing on how arts management can support identity and difference as expressed in art and through creative expression. It will do this through a day of workshops centered on this theme. The Arts Management Studies Research Stream aims to provide a forum for interrogating and investigating the role of arts management as an academic discipline, area of research, and a field of practice. It will therefore, consider the theme of identity and difference as a concern for arts management and ask researchers to explore and question the role that arts managers have in nurturing and encouraging, identity and difference, in audiences, artistic practise and programming choices. Proposals can be submitted until February 15th, 2016.

CfP: Arts Management Newsletter on “An entirely new Arts Management”

Arts Management Network is dedicated to a cultural sector that is visionary, exemplary and cutting-edge. In more than 120 issues, the Arts Management Newsletter has been witness to a great deal of changes in the arts sector over the past ten years. Globalization, digitization and economization have brought both new challenges as well as opportunities for arts organizations around the world. For that reason, our aim is to present comprehensive worldwide developments while reviewing and fostering the special needs and local characteristics of the cultural sector in both developed and developing regions. Suiting these changing circumstances and now that our ten-year anniversary is approaching, we at Arts Management Network – just like the arts sector as a whole – feel that it is time to rethink ourselves in order to meet these changes head on. With a whole new platform and newsletter, we want to create a user-friendly environment that is best suited for professional exchange and discussion. The first “new” Arts Management Newsletter will be the prelude for exchange about “an entirely new Arts Management,” about societal and economical developments, problem-solving oriented perspectives, new organizational performances and the palpable role that art and culture will play for society in the future.

With revenues of US$2,250 billion, Cultural and Creative Industries account for 3% of world GDP and employ 29.5 million people (1% of the world’s active population). Cultural and Creative Industries (CCI) revenues exceed those of telecom services and employ more people than the car industry of Europe, Japan and the USA combined (29.5 million vs. 25 million). This major contribution of CCI to the global economy is explained in a new study, jointly presented by the International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers (CISAC) and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) at UNESCO’s headquarters in Paris, France, and published by EY (formerly Ernst & Young).
