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.
PIE - Peter Lang, 2016-11-29
This book places the study of public support for the arts and culture within the prism of public policy making. It is explicitly comparative in casting cultural policy within a broad sociopolitical and historical framework. Given the complexity of national communities, there has been an absence of comparative analyses that would explain the wide variability in modes of cultural policy as reflections of public cultures and cultural identity. The discussion is internationally focused and interdisciplinary. Mulcahy contextualizes a wide variety of cultural policies and their relation to politics and identity by asking a basic question: who gets their heritage valorized and by whom is this done? The fundamental assumption is that culture is at the heart of public policy as it defines national identity and personal value.

Performing arts centers (PACs) are an integral part of the cultural and creative industries, significantly influencing the cultural, social, and economic vitality of communities around the world. Virtually all PACs are community-based and serve the public interest, whether structured as a public, nonprofit, for-profit, or hybrid entity. However, there is a lack of knowledge about the important community role of performing arts centers, especially those that mainly host and present work produced by other arts organizations. This gap is startling, given the ubiquitous presence of PACs in urban centers, small communities, as well as colleges and universities.

This co-edited reference book provides valuable information at the intersection of theory and practice in the professional field of executive leadership of performing arts centers. Drawing on the expertise of leading academics, consultants, and executives, this book focuses on institutions and practices in the United States, and is contextualized within additional fields such as cultural planning, urban revitalization, and economic development.

Performing Arts Center Management aims to provide valuable theoretical, conceptual, empirical, and practice-based information to current and future leaders in creative and cultural industries management. It serves as a unique reference for researchers, university students, civic leaders, urban planners, public venue managers, and arts administrators aspiring to improve or advance their work in successfully managing performing arts centers.

In an era of intensifying globalization and transnational connectivity, the dynamics of cultural production and the very notion of creativity are in transition. Exploring creative practices in various settings, the book does not only call attention to the spread of modernist discourses of creativity, from the colonial era to the current obsession with 'innovation' in neo-liberal capitalist cultural politics, but also to the less visible practices of copying, recycling and reproduction that occur as part and parcel of creative improvization.

The Spy Museum, the Vacuum Cleaner Museum, the National Mustard Museumnot to mention the Art Institute, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Getty Center: museums have never been more robust, curating just about everything there is and assuming a new prominence in public life. The Return of Curiosity explores museums in the modern age, offering a fresh perspective on some of our most important cultural institutions and the vital function they serve as stewards of human and natural history. Reflecting on art galleries, science and history institutions, and collections all around the world, Nicholas Thomas argues that, in times marked by incredible insecurity and turbulence, museums help us sustain and enrich society. Moreover, they stimulate us to think in new ways about our world, compelling our curiosity and showing us the importance of understanding one another. Thomas looks at museums not simply as storehouses of old things but as the products of meaningful relationships between curators, the public, history, and culture. These relationships, he shows, dont always go smoothly, but they do always offer new insights into the many ways we valueand try to preservethe world we live in. The result is a refreshing and hopeful look at museums as a cultural force, one that, by gathering together paintings, tropical birds, antiques, or even our own bodies, offers an illuminating reflection of who we are.

The study of the museum visitor has undergone radical transformation. Each author here has asked unfamiliar questions and responded with fresh answers. Some of these questions involve the visitor's identity, what she brings to her museum experience. Can we gain entry into this experience? Does more technology really increase access to the objects themselves? Others probe the very nature of museum going and exhibition making, demanding that we reexamine the traditional exhibition to reposition the visitor and her meaning-making at the centre. The volume provokes imaginative research and encourages new conclusions.

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.

Unlike the management of a set of accounts, managing people is not as easy to do. People management is the main role of arts managers. This book is not about rules or techniques, rather about storytelling and reflection based on research and theories from around the world.

Creative Industry practices are increasingly manifested through hybrid models and methods and emerging sub-sectors. With ever finer dividing lines between form and content, product and service, participation and consumption, the distinctions between sectors are increasingly blurred, while new, convergent models emerge.

Reflecting this fluid context, this book provides a new perspective on strategy in the Creative Industries. Based on extensive original research and live empirical data derived from case studies, interviews, and observations with creative managers, it reveals strategic decision-making by analysing business manoeuvres and stages of innovation in the Creative Industries. Through analysing the interactive features of aesthetically driven information assets, and how new user/consumer cultures are applied, it uncovers the principles that are transforming strategy in the Creative Industries. This innovative volume will be of significant interest to scholars, advanced students and practitioners in the Creative Industries as well as well as industry consultancies and practitioners.

Exploring the connection between culture and broader goals of human development, this research focuses on cultural and creative industries in what is commonly referred to as 'developing countries'. Christiaan De Beukelaer offers a thorough exploration of how the concepts of cultural and creative industries are constructed and implemented across African countries and evaluates various policy implications of his findings. Combining an empirical study of the cultural industries of Africa with an understanding towards broader insights regarding global implications of the European debate surrounding creative industries, De Beukelaer's work will greatly benefit our thinking on cultural policy.
