Is well-intentioned the same as well done? With the concept of effective altruism, William MacAskill presents criteria to assess the work of non-profit organizations and make them more effective. His unusual but sound approaches can also be applied to the field of arts and culture. At the same time, MacAskill's book is a practical and intuitive guideline for facilities, staff workers and supporters of non-profit cultural work.

My course on cultural management at the National School of Drama (NSD) in New Delhi is a prime example for how it is for a Western lecturer to teach in India: On the one hand, one cannot presume many of the things that Western students would naturally know about. On the other hand, there is a wide range of cultural-managerial knowledge and skills, passed down in part through the generations under different labels, different names or simply without any special designation. At the same time, the work in a country like India is by no means any more exotic as in Europe.

The Open Society Institute Assistance Foundation in Tajikistan is about to launch a new MA program in Arts Management in Dushanbe, in partnership with four local universities. This will be the first program of that kind in the region of Central Asia. The program needs a solid backup by methodological materials on diverse subject matters. Therefore the coordinators plan to open a Resource Centre for Arts Management (both online and offline), to be managed by the renowned nonprofit organization Dushanbe Art Ground. Thus, they kindly ask for donations of materials to the new center - publications, books, documents and so on.

The French sociologist and political scientist Vincent Dubois' book Culture as a Vocation deals with the central questions concerning career decisions in cultural management: When and where had this comparatively young job profile its origin? Who aims for such a career today and which are the social and personal factors that influence this decision? With his answers Dubois lays the foundation for a yet strongly neglected field.

Liechtenstein is one of the smallest countries in the world and most people connect it to its former status as a tax haven. We spoke with Professor Dr. Rainer Vollkommer, the director of the Liechtenstein State Museum about what it is like to direct a cultural institution with a regional focus in a country that many regard as provincial.

The IAMA meetings twice a year are a firm date in many artist managers diaries. The first one of this year took place in Utrecht, Holland April 7-9, 2016, and attracted over 400 delegates with the motto "Shake it off". This could be interpreted in various ways - shake off the depressive mood that has become so prevalent when talking about classical music or shake off the old ways of doing business and take active steps in new directions. Both interpretations were equally valid within the context of the discussions.

In many European countries, the arts, heritage and cultural sector is supported by or partially subsidized by government. However, due to the economic crisis and cuts in budget, the amount of funds for direct subsidies is decreasing. Starting from this assumption, the project Empowering Museum Professionals and Heritage Organizations Staff by cultural entrepreneurship training and research (EMPHOS) has the objective to develop entrepreneurial skills and attitude among cultural professionals.

If leaders would approach emerging problems like designers, many products, services and procedures would become more functional, and would be able to create long lasting values for the organisation and society. For that reason we present a novel integrative education concept, the DIS.CO EXPERT leadership program. It is built on the interaction of different disciplines and the collaboration of different professions, and places business professionals into designer and artist roles, while designers and representatives of the creative disciplines are enforced to become leaders.

The 23rd ENCATC on The Ecology of Culture: Community Engagement, Co-Creation, Cross-Fertilization took place in the city of Lecce in South Italy in October 2015. It brought together international researchers, policy makers, culture professionals and students in what turned out to be a very fruitful, lively and by no means exclusively European discussion forum. Academics, however, still dominated the event, with only few artist and cultural entrepreneurs present. It is certainly a matter of communication and cultural as well as political infrastructures to encourage them to get more involved, rather than staying the passive object of research.

The research topic of public participation in arts and culture is garnering ever-increasing international attention. A recent contribution to the international literature in this field is the German Handbuch Kulturpublikum, edited by Patrick Glogner-Pilz and Patrick S. Foehl (Handbook of Cultural Audiences. Research questions and findings). Comprised of chapters by 24 leading German scholars, this innovative resource provides a veritable encyclopedia of insight into the contemporary state of theory, methods, and practice as well as emerging international approaches to the field, thus offering the reader deep insight into what is a uniquely German scholarly lens.

With revenues of US$2,250 billion, Cultural and Creative Industries (CCI) account for 3% of world GDP and employ 29.5 million people (1% of the worlds active population). This major contribution 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 UNESCOs headquarters in Paris, France, and published by EY (formerly Ernst & Young).

The South Netherlands Philharmonic (SNPh) is the result of severe cuts in Netherlands state subsidies for the arts. These cuts resulted in the merger of two former orchestras into the SNPh. The SNPh started in 2013 after extensive strategic financial and managerial approaches were made. At the beginning of its third season the new orchestra is now widely seen as a successful artistic body and a flourishing arts-institution with a close relationship to its region.

Still, information gaps exist. For instance, relevant, up-to-date and publicly accessible online information on arts and culture and their professional management can still prove hard to find for some regions and countries. Anupama Sekhar presented culture360.asef.org, an online portal on arts and culture focusing on Asia and Europe to address this knowledge gap, at the ENCATC Annual Conference 2014.

Egypt has a vibrant, internationally inspired independent scene with dedicated employees. In contrast, the traditional culture is financially shabbily treated and reglemented by the state. In the light of censorship, centralization and a lack of professionalism in cultural management the cultural sector could hardly make any impact on its content. The Goethe-Institut wants to change that with specialized and adequate trainings.
