"Introduction to International Arts Management" deals with the reactions of arts managers in more than 45 countries around the world to globalization and illustrates how arts organizations strive to internationalize not only to increase competitiveness, but also to reach out to an increasingly diverse audience and bring the potential and talent that is inherent in this diversity to the forefront.

Societies worldwide are currently facing far-reaching and often challenging developments. And although every countrys arts sector has its peculiarities, these developments influence most countries and thereby their art sector as well. So, what can arts managers do to make the best of new circumstances and to help the societies we live in handle them? How can we use the arts' inherent creative potential to anticipate the changes that will come? What competencies and knowledge will we need in the future to fulfill our tasks? The approaches in the new issue of Arts Management Quarterly on "an entirely new Arts Management" want to find answers to this questions.

Jeremie Gluckman spoke with the cultural managers working with or within arts enterprises in the U.S. and China. These leaders are all using the internet to engage local communities and share stories with the world. All the while, they are wrestling with challenges related to representation when contributing to the sea of messages, information, and images online. They are also equipped with an awareness of skewed access.

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.

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.

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.

Digitization is not only changing how arts organizations can convey cultural experiences, reach users and open up to the input of visitors. It is rather changing the way we think about the conditions and structures of day-to-day creative work. At the same time, digitization is opening up a multitude of possibilities of increasing the economic value of the arts. The field of cultural entrepreneurship is reconsidering the intersection of culture, technology and entrepreneurship. It uses the new dynamics that arise to the cultural sector to revolutionize current business models and redefine the impact of culture. Cultural entrepreneurship can be a way to reduce dependence on public funding and to position itself as an economic factor vis--vis politics and public without abandoning individual artistic and idealistic societal demands. As culture represents both artistic as well as social values, we do not intend to separate cultural and social entrepreneurship from each other in this newsletter, or, for that matter, from entrepreneurial thinking within the arts sector.

Cultural managers have an urgent need for advanced trainings to face the changes in society and politics concerning the arts. But what competences does that include? Lorraine Lim, lecturer in arts management at Birkbeck, stated in the Guardian that according to a study among her students, the important skills nowadays are not only how to run an arts institution, but to manage different kinds of projects as portfolio work and to create a career out of short-term employments. With regard to globalization and the differentiation of the cultural sector, this includes often neglected aspects like dealing with failure, intercultural communication and - since glocalization is coming along with globalization - insights in international cultural infrastructures, and social and political circumstances.

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.
