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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

"Dr Lukasz Wroblewski's book Culture Management: Strategy and Marketing Aspects clearly recognises that the pressures on the cultural sector in the 21st Century are greater than ever before. Based on robust academic research within a practical industry context, this book addresses all the key issues related to marketing strategy and planning for the cultural industries. It will be an invaluable tool for managers, policy-makers and all those working in the creative and cultural world, and will help them to develop sound strategies for the future." Dr Kim Lehman Tasmanian School of Business and Economics, University of Tasmania "Dr Wroblewski's book explains clearly what has changed to make the use of business models necessary, even in organizations which might have resisted in the past. Globalization has resulted in a population which understands and appreciates art and culture created in other countries. While it might be agreed that this is beneficial for society, it means that cultural arbitrators within a country no longer have the authority to dictate what is accepted as culture. Managers now understand that to gain the support of the public they must explain the benefits of consuming their cultural product." Dr Bonita M. Kolb Professor Emeritus of Lycoming College in Pennsylvania "A thoughtful and penetrating analysis of culture management addressing marketing strategies and cultural institutions. An important must read' book for those involved in this exciting sector." Prof Adrian Payne University of UNSW Business School, University of New South Wales; Logos Verlag Berlin; 194 pages

This book focuses on the relationships between the creative city principles and the planning approach introduced by the European Landscape Convention in order to identify best practices for the development of innovative cultural policies and new urban regeneration tools. The research is characterized by a cross-cutting approach to cultural heritage. It proposes a new model for the design of advanced cultural districts consisting of a benchmark methodology and a "toolbox" of spatial, economic and social indicators that can be used to build the necessary knowledge. Finally, having Sardinia Region (IT) as reference, the book offers a picture of programs and plans to which the methodology and the toolbox can be applied, outlining their potential impacts within cultural and spatial planning.

The Cultural Policy and Management Research Centre (KPY) at Istanbul Bilgi University is once again delivering its annual publication, covering major issues and debates of the 2014-
2015 period. This 2014-2015 issue is the fifth in the KPY Yearbook series, published by Istanbul Bilgi University Press.

The central theme of the 2014-2015 Yearbook is the changing relationship between state and culture thus the overall title of the Focus section is Cultural Interventions. Under this title the book has two sub-sections, the first addressing new public policies towards the cultural field, and the second exploring civil society responses. The book is discussing the theme of Cultural Interventions within a comparative perspective, with cases from different countries. Thus, in the Turkish context, there have been recent attempts by the Turkish government to close down state cultural institutions, and to put in place a new regime of cultural governance. Also, in the Turkish context, there is vital issue of state-generated censorship of cultural expression. Elsewhere there are questions regarding state support for the arts in a context of deepening financial crisis. There is also the issue, in all regions, concerning the sustainability of ever growing numbers of cultural institutions and players.

The second issue concerns the changing civil society response to official public cultural policies. Here we have analysis from Turkey and Bulgaria, on civil society activism in the face of emerging authoritarian state cultural politics.

In each Yearbook we have a themed Focus section, and an Open Space section. In 2014-2015 Yearbook the Open Space contains articles on cultural policy research, participatory governance of funding in the arts, shopping malls as cultural spaces and a letter from Syria. The Review section contains reviews of relevant publications and conferences.

Vocational occupations are attractive not so much for their material rewards as for the prestige and self-fulfillment they confer. They require a strong personal commitment, which can be subjectively experienced in terms of passion and selflessness. The choice of a career in the cultural sector provides a good example of this. What are the terms of this calling? What predisposes individuals to answer it? What are the meanings of such a choice? To answer these questions, this book focuses on would-be cultural managers. By identifying their social patterns, by revealing the resources, expectations and visions of the world they invest in their choice, it sheds new light on these occupations. In these intermediary and indeterminate social positions, family heritages intersect with educational strategies, aspirations of upward mobility with tactics against downward mobility, and social critique with adjustment strategies. Ultimately the study of career choices in cultural management suggests a new take on the analysis of social reproduction and on the embodiment of the new spirit of capitalism. The empirical findings of this research conducted in France are set in a broader comparative perspective, at the European level and with the USA.

Presenting concepts, knowledge and institutional settings of arts management and cultural policy research, this book builds on two assumptions that are simultaneously propositions. The first is that arts management research and cultural policy research evolve in an academic space that is very loosely connected, but nevertheless federated. The second is that we evolve in a field where there is a greater diversity of knowledge producers than it is often assumed. Practicing outside academia, many arts managers, policymakers, advocates, and other professionals still connect and mediate knowledge in spaces that are interconnected, and perhaps even more integrated than we would readily admit. This book offers a map, a representation of the concepts and spaces of knowledge production in the field. It constitutes an excellent introduction to students, and scholars and practitioners will find in it a renewed representation of the field and the seeds of an intellectual debate on our research community.

Arts and cultural activity in Asia is increasingly seen as important internationally, and Asias growing prosperity is enabling the full range of artistic activities to be better encouraged, supported and managed. At the same time, cultural frameworks and contexts vary hugely across Asia, and it is not appropriate to apply Westerns theories and models of leadership and management. This book presents a range of case studies of arts and cultural leadership across a large number of Asian countries. Besides examining different cultural frameworks and contexts, the book considers different cultural approaches to leadership, discusses external challenges and entrepreneurialism, and explores how politics can have a profound impact. Throughout the book covers different art forms, and different sorts of arts and cultural organisations.
