Cultural communities are shaped and produced by ongoing processes of translation understood as aesthetic media practices - such is the premise of this volume. Taking on perspectives from cultural, literary and media studies as well as postcolonial theory, the chapters shed light on composite cultural and heterotypical translation processes across various media, such as texts, films, graphic novels, theater and dance performances. Thus, the authors explore the cultural contexts of diverse media milieus in order to explain how cultural communities come into being.

This book explores the character of cultural governance of arts and cultural institutions in eight countries across five continents. Examining strategy and decision-making at an organisational level, this is the first empirical contribution on cultural policy and management, revealing how it is applied across the globe in otherwise unexplored countries. Concerned with the assumption that `one-size fits all', the chapter authors analyse how cultural governance is managed within arts organizations in a range of countries to assess whether some locations are trying to apply unsuitable models. The chapters aim to discover and assess new practices to benefit the understanding of cultural governance and the arts sector which have as yet been excluded from the literature. As a collection of local accounts, this book offers a broad and rich perspective on managing cultural governance around the world.

A Restless Art is about community and participatory art. It’s about what those practices are, how people think about them, why they’re done and what happens as a result. It’s called ‘a restless art’ because this work is unstable, changing and contested. It involves a range of ideas and practices. It crackles with artistic, political, ethical and philosophical tensions that give participatory art life, energy and creativity. They are what make it matter in people’s lives.

In the early years of the Cold War, Western nations increasingly adopted strategies of public diplomacy involving popular music. While the diplomatic use of popular music was initially limited to such genres as jazz, the second half of the twentieth century saw a growing presence of various popular genres in diplomatic contexts, including rock, punk, reggae, and hip-hop. This volume illuminates the interrelation of popular music and public diplomacy from a transnational and transdisciplinary angle. The contributions argue that, as popular music has been a crucial factor in international relations, its diplomatic use has substantially impacted the global musical landscape of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

A conceptual toolkit for arts and culture
An outcome of the Creative Lenses Project
This book is an outcome of four-year Creative Lenses project and offers insights into the conversations, debates and views that emerged from the project. Started as a quest for ‘business models’ to ‘rescue’ struggling arts and cultural organisations, the project later turned into a wider examination of the sector and its role in the society. It does not only try to understand how such initiatives can survive but rather where they fit in the new dynamic. The emerged concept is reflected in the title of the book - ‘Models to Manifestos’.
The book comprises a wide spectrum of views from experienced and informed commentators, case studies and interviews from every corner of Europe. It reflects the diversity that exists within Europe and the differences in terms of history, practice, location and approach. It consists of four sections, which mirrors Creative Lenses’ journey.

The creative and cultural industries are a dynamic and rapidly expanding field of enterprise. Yet all too often the dominant narrative about arts organisations is one of crisis, collapse, and closure. This edited collection seeks to challenge that narrative through pursuing a focus on organisational success in the management of creative and cultural organizations.
This book offers a robust and in depth analysis of nine international case studies exploring how different organisations have achieved their objectives through effectively managing their resources. Spanning a broad cross section of the cultural sector including Theatres, Multi-Arts Venues; Performing Arts Companies; Museums and Galleries; and Festivals and Events, these cases highlight the importance of examining an individual organisations success in relation to its environmental context, revealing not only how arts organisations work in practice, but also providing inspiration and encouragement for those wishing to emulate such success.
With an explicit focus on examining theory in practice, this unique collection will be of great interest to students, academics, and practitioners alike. While traditional approaches have often been overly theoretical, this pragmatic approach will help students to gain a richer understanding of how to manage cultural and creative organisations more effectively.

In this pocket publication Flanders Arts Institute examines new ways of working internationally in the arts. Joris Janssens collects insights and light bulb moments from the research & development trajectory (Re)framing the International. For many years, working internationally has been self-evident in music, visual arts and performing arts. But discomfort is growing. With the economic pressure, inequality and precarity are increasing. Geopolitical turbulences and ecological concerns strip our assumptions of their innocence.
How to understand these trends? What is the actual value and significance of working internationally in the arts, in a shifting societal context? Which frictions and contradictions occur? Which answers or alternatives are being developed? How can we imagine new ways of working internationally?
In the series of kunstenpockets Flanders Arts Institute shares insights from current research projects.

Arts and Cultural Management: Sense and Sensibilities in the State of the Field opens a conversation that is much needed for anyone identifying arts management or cultural management as primary areas of research, teaching, or practice. In the evolution of any field arises the need for scrutiny, reflection, and critique, as well as to display the advancements and diversity in approaches and thinking that contribute to a discipline’s forward progression. While no one volume could encompass all that a discipline is or should be, a representational snapshot serves as a valuable benchmark.
This book is addressed to those who operate as researchers, scholars, and practitioners of arts and cultural management. Driven by concerns about quality of life, globalization, development of economies, education of youth, the increasing mobility of cultural groups, and many other significant issues of the twenty-first century, governments and individuals have increasingly turned to arts and culture as means of mitigating or resolving tough policy issues. For their growth, arts and culture sectors depend on people in positions of leadership and management who play a significant role in the creation, production, exhibition, dissemination, interpretation, and evaluation of arts and culture experiences for publics and policies. Less than a century old as a formal field of inquiry, however, arts and cultural management has been in flux since its inception. What is arts and cultural management? remains an open question. A comprehensive literature on the discipline, as an object of study, is still developing. This State of the Discipline offers a benchmark for those interested in the evolution and development of arts and cultural management as a branch of knowledge alongside more established disciplines of research and scholarship.

For the Goethe-Institut as the initiator of cultural programmes, sustainability and resource management in cultural work is an important issue. With its collection of strategies and tools, the Inspirador is a useful collection of ideas for sustainable cultural management.
It encourages users to try new paths and inspires them to think about sustainable work methods. The guideline has no claims to completeness or universal validity: It operates under a CC-license (CC BY-SA), which means that it allows an unlimited number of other Inspiradors to be created. Culture workers can use it to record other initiatives that could serve as examples of a creative, inclusive and sustainable practise in culture management.
The Inspirador does not only promote sustainability in the sense of protecting nature and the environment, it also looks at working relations or the city itself and includes collaborative and fair working methods. And, as its name suggests, the guideline wants to inspire. Since it aims to respect and promote specific local features, each language version provided new examples from the practise of cultural management that cover the realities in each respective country and region.
In 2015, the first version of the guideline was developed in Portuguese. The central questions of the guideline “Inspirador: dá para fazer produção cultural de outro jeito” were: How do culture managers make decisions about activities that don’t focus exclusively on the success of an event, but could also be models for a responsible way of dealing with the world? How can sustainability and the environment benefit from resource-efficient practises in cultural management?
Two years later, an updated version of the Inspirador was also published in English. “Inspirador 1.2: International guidelines for sustainable cultural management” lists strategies and tools from the field of cultural production and contains 48 examples to recreate, from developing a fair work schedule to communicating with the audience.
The third version has been available in German since 2018. In “Inspirador 1.3: Internationaler Leitfaden für ein nachhaltiges Kulturmanagement“, readers will find new as well as proven strategies and tools of economic cultural management. The guideline focuses on initiatives in Germany, such as Café Botanico, which grows around 200 kinds of plant for its own use, or Leaf Republic, a company that produces biodegradable plates and cutlery.

Many of us feel uneasy with the lack of recognition that our community, city, region or country receives internationally and with the stereotypes and outdated clichés by which "outsiders" define us. This has probably been the case for as long as man exists, but in today's world with its global connections and social media, it is becoming more apparent, more relevant and more frustrating; to citizens generally, but in particular to policy makers, public administrators, leaders and representatives in public, private and civil society sectors. Why this is so and what to do about it is the topic of this book. It is the first book to discuss the issue of community reputation in a manner that is accessible to all; free from any use of jargon, management terminology or unnecessary complexity. It argues that for communities to be admired, they need a sense of belonging and purpose in order to do amazing imaginative things befitting their character while captivating others. Imaginative initiatives are recognisably from somewhere and hence cut through the clutter in order to create community profile. The book contains examples from Austin, Barcelona, Bhutan, Den Bosch, Dubai, Egypt, Eindhoven, Estonia, Finland, Firenze (Florence), Kazakhstan, Lanzarote, Limburg (Maastricht Region), Oslo, Rome, The Hague, the United States of America and other communities. The book primarily aims to inspire readers and offer them a broad overview of an issue in modern society that is of interest and relevance to all of us: the reputation of our communities.

This book highlights the change-making capacity of culture by exploring the intellectual and practical interventions of "courageous citizens." These citizens can be thinkers, artists, activists and collectives―those whose thoughts, ideas and actions play a pivotal role in the struggle for just societies. It is these change-makers who, through their everyday actions, work toward a collective future and complex societal reconfigurations.
Looking back at the past decade, this book identifies three themes which have been, and continue to be, relevant to social change: identity and diversity; culture, communities and democracies; and solidarity and fragmentation. It shows how courageous citizens have activated the cycles of thinking and rethinking, doing and changing, which have altered the way we view the world. Combining theoretical perspectives with case studies, this book aims to demonstrate the potential of culture to generate positive social change.

This Toolkit examines how historical links between countries, different political contexts, technical infrastructure and skills, freedom to travel, living and working conditions, aesthetics, traditions, and of course financial resources, can influence expectations and engagement, when it comes to international and intercultural activities. Combining case studies and theoretical references, the text provides food for thought and practical tools to artists and cultural professionals, and hopes to feed the discussion between policy-makers and funders, with the overall aim to contribute to more equal, meaningful and enriching international artistic collaborations.

This book contributes to the debate on the emerging governance systems and management models of the cultural sector by means of a comparative analysis of significant case studies of public-private partnerships in Europe. The research focuses on the development of public-private collaborations over the last five decades and investigates the emergence of multi-stakeholder partnerships in the cultural and creative field. The results of the analysis are interpreted in light of the discussion on the need to create integrated cultural systems at a local level that bring together cultural organizations, public authorities, citizens and communities. These territorial cultural ecosystems could unlock the potential of the cultural and creative sector and stimulate new ways to promote the cultural identity of the territory, giving a new role to cultural and creative organizations.

As machine-readable data comes to play an increasingly important role in everyday life, researchers find themselves with rich resources for studying society. The novel methods and tools needed to work with such data require not only new knowledge and skills, but also a new way of thinking about best research practices. This book critically reflects on the role and usefulness of big data, challenging overly optimistic expectations about what such information can reveal; introducing practices and methods for its analysis and visualization; and raising important political and ethical questions regarding its collection, handling, and presentation. 272 pages, Hardcover.

Leadership Framed by Art uncovers the eye-opening parallel between modern art and business leadership. Iris Lavy shows how modern art can inspire influential and charismatic leadership. The refreshing takes this book offers will inspire the leaders-artists who make sure that the cogs of motivation, innovation and entrepreneurship continue to buzz as they color the old familiar boxes with out-of-the-box shades and hues.

Leadership Framed by Art breathes new life into the concept of leadership with innovative originality. The book sheds new colors on commonplace issues such as vision, change management and womens leadership by drawing inspiration from predominant artists and linking their ideas to the current world of management. Drawing on the wisdom of Bill Gates of Microsoft, Jack Dorsey of Twitter, Sheryl Sandberg, VCOO at Facebook, Jamie Dimon, CEO and Chair of JP Morgan Chase and countless other giants.

Iris Lavys thesis is clear and concise: Pablo Picasso or Andy Warhol were and still are cultural leaders. They ran counter to the accepted models of the time, promoted fresh thinking while breaking the boundaries to oppose blind obedience to norms. Modern artists called on their peers to follow them out and to gallop ahead on the high wire between consensus and the great unknown. This is exactly the kind of leadership needed in the current challenging and yet exciting business world arena of the 21st century. 182 pages, Publisher: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform
