Globalisation heavily affects the daily work of arts managers around the globe in both positive and negative ways. But although intercultural understanding currently may seem to be more difficult than ever before and some voices are still absent, new narratives enter the stage that can help arts managers to meet current challenges and their supra-regional impacts. This issue of Arts Management Quarterly on "Cultural Inequalities" raises the curtain for these narratives. It is the result of a stimulating cooperation with the network Brokering Intercultural Exchange. The articles present insights into the barriers for intercultural understanding and collaboration among arts managers.

The book by Jenny Svensson - by now only published in German under the title Die Kunst, Kultur (nicht) nur zu messen: Evaluation im Theater- und Kulturbetrieb - presents a functional model of evaluation measures of public funded cultural enterprises. Thus, it makes a fruitful contribution to the path to further professionalization of the cultural industry and cultural management.

Quality in the cultural field is mostly related to the artistic product. But how about the services and administration of arts organisations? How can they be defined, quantified and measured taking into account the perspectives of the different artistic sectors, institutions and countries? With this issue of Arts Management Quarterly, we shed light on existing approaches and inspire new ideas. And because we also want to offer the best possible services to our readers, we currently thoroughly overhaule our own services and are happy to already present you the new design of our journal with this issue.

While #metoo dominates the media, there is a growing debate about gender equality in the cultural field as well. But where do the German and international art scene stand when it comes to art and gender? Katrin Hassler's book (currently only available in German) attempts to explore this in a quantitative study and provides figures on the significance of gender for filling leading positions in the art field.

In October 2016, when the Goethe Institutes "Damascus in Exile" project was launched in a small shop in the center of Berlin, it was a structural novelty that brought a symbolic space and its political significance at the center of attention, and brought together people of different origins.

Lukasz Wróblewskis book seeks to address a lack of basic theoretical knowledge in the areas of strategic and marketing management amongst those working in the cultural sector. For arts professionals from countries such as the UK - the reviewers home country - this diagnosis may seem outdated. Yet given that Wróblewskis main research interest is the Polish cultural sector, this assessment can at least partly be revised allowing for the differing trajectory of development in the countrys arts institutions in recent years. Wróblewskis book therefore provides an enlightening and empirically based introduction to the current status of Polish arts management.

How to Run a Theatre (2011) by Jim Volz is a good introduction to this field for someone currently unfamiliar with arts management. Volz addresses the largest pillars of theatre management (position types, board relations, personnel management/HR, strategic planning, fundraising, marketing, and financial management), while also referencing nuances of the job, such as competition and finding a work/life balance both with a focus on the US arts sector.

The impact of the arts sector on urban development is very heterogeneous. The latest version of the two most important international roadmaps on this topic, United Nations New Urban Agenda and the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, acknowledge arts and culture as facilitators in fields such as social cohesion, education, or well-being. But to implement these effects into urban development road maps, the patterns and demands of local cultural infrastructures first have to be specified. Such basic work is the perfect starting point for arts professionals and artists to become part of comprehensive urban planning processes. Issue No 127 of Arts Management Quarterly sheds light on the impact that arts and culture can have on urban development. With it, we hope to inspire you to dive deeper into urban trends and to develop visions for the city of the future.

In the cultural sector and in cultural policy, international cooperation is taken for granted. But to be truly fruitful, cultural exchange must be on an equal footing. But what does that mean? Are arts organizations really on a par with their partners? Is it really fair cooperation they pursue? With her award-winning doctoral thesis, Dr. Annika Hampel has triggered the discussion of a topic debated still much too rarely.

The third seminar of the network Brokering Intercultural Exchange taking place in Zürich, Switzerland was the best gathering of Arts/Cultural Management academics, practitioners, and students I have have ever attended. To this appraisement, I have identified eight qualities that continue to come up in conversations like a leitmotiv from a Wagnerian opera.

I was in Scotland presenting at the Association of Arts Administration Educators conference with colleagues from two other countries on Sustainability and the Arts when Donald Trump pulled the US out of the Paris Climate Accords. The conference became a reminder that not only is it incumbent upon all of us to step up and save the planet. We have to lead. My online course "Greening Your Arts Nonprofit Organization" shows you how.

The 36th Annual AAAE conference was hosted by Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh between May 31st and June 2nd 2017. The fact, that the conference took place in Europe, surely resulted in several new faces. One third of the participants were so-called first timers (assumedly several of them Europeans who took advantage of not having to travel that far).

This research seeks to develop greater understanding of the impacts of globalization, digitalization, and (im)migration on the work of arts managers and arts management researchers. Different from studies that focus specifically on those who work exclusively in international contexts, this paper aims to present current research based on an international empirical study of arts managers who do not necessarily cross borders for their work and who would in most cases not even consider their work international as such.
