Egypt has a vibrant, internationally inspired independent scene with dedicated employees. In contrast, the traditional culture is financially shabbily treated and reglemented by the state. In the light of censorship, centralization and a lack of professionalism in cultural management the cultural sector could hardly make any impact on its content. The Goethe-Institut wants to change that with specialized and adequate trainings.

SIETAR is one of the largest association of specialists who research and teach the skills necessary to develop a diverse, participatory environment, and help people to operate professionally in it. The aim of its last conference, which took place from May 21st to 23rd in Valencia, Spain, was to broach the issue of the interfaces and cultures of arts, economy, society, policy, and education to reshape intercultural discourses and question current cultural paradigms. 350 interculturalists left the Congress with a bag full of inspiring ideas.

"The most precious things in life are not those you get for money," said Albert Einstein. Cultural managers, artists, and cultural policymakers are well aware that the personal and social value of culture cannot simply be measured through funding. Nevertheless, policy often tries to convey the rehabilitation of its budgets through funding cuts in the cultural sector while cultural institutions and initiatives complain about the lack of money not just since the economic crisis. In this context, the ENCATC (European Network of Cultural Administration Training Centers) placed the question "Is it all about money?" at the center of its annual conference 2014.
Money for publicity: this over-simplistic marketing principle that underlies any sponsorship agreement is increasingly losing its attractiveness for corporate communications. Today, entrepreneurial cultural engagement is less about image or about customer loyalty than it is about the central asset of trust. Hence, the idea of corporate cultural engagement has to be rethought.

The Tower of Babel or the Arabian Nights: The cultural background of the historical Near East seems almost magical. The contrast with its modern counterpart could hardly be more striking, where armed conflicts and religious fervour alternate with western oriented luxury. But how about Arts and Culture during this times of crisis, conflicts and change?
The Culture Invest Congress calls itself the "largest industry get-together for cultural institutions and culture investors". Well, with over 50 presenting partners, 100 presentations and 36 panel discussions, all crammed into 2 intensive days, it may very well be the largest in Europe. More than anything else, the congress was an opportunity, as usual, to network and find out who is doing what and how.

Cultural organizations face the challenge of knowledge management with limited resources in day-to-day business operations. Knowledge is not (sufficiently) documented, nor is it secure with the organization because of fluctuation and irregular employment of staff. The goal of this paper by Prof. Gesa Birnkraut is to develop recommendations for the management of knowledge in cultural institutions based on theory and an online survey of 38 cultural institutions in total.

On the 16th and 17th October, the Karlshochschule International University, Germany held the conference ReThinking Management.

Is European culture visible enough in the globalized world? Why is culture from this continent often perceived as old-fashioned or even worse as out-dated? Is the export of national cultural products and services - in most European countries subsidized by the taxpayer - no longer relevant, or more relevant than ever before? Is it a huge waste of money, time, and effort or an attempt to create another form of globalization? These and several other questions concerning the export of culture are addressed by authors from different countries in order to initiate a debate about the role European cultural products and services are able to play globally.

To be treated with respect and dignity throughout an entire application process surely is not too much to ask for. However, this sadly isnt standard practice. The poor treatment of job applicants is not a rare event. Steven Libman proposes an Applicants Bill of Rights.

When Esplanade Theatres on the Bay opened in 2002, we were very clear that as Singapores national performing arts centre, we would be more than just an arts venue. We wanted to help make the arts an important part of peoples lives. To do that, our programmes needed to connect with the countrys diverse audiences, we needed to make the arts accessible for everyone to enjoy, and we also had to nurture audiences of all ages and backgrounds to engage with the diversity of arts and culture.
After graduating from university, highly educated people frequently start working as interns and then find themselves in an endless loop of internships. This situation is even worse considering that only few of them get paid. In addition to that, internships only seldomly come with job description and performance feedback is rarely given.
A healthy culture aligned with ethical values is what distinguishes the great arts institutions. But what does the sustainability of an arts organization depend on? In which way are different stakeholders affected and what does the leaders role look like?

Arts organisations and museums in UK will have been scrambling to get their grant applications into the Arts Council today. And they should be worried. The news in all of the culture pages in newspapers is bleak. Stories abound about local authority cuts and Arts Council cuts, and rightly so, because without investment the arts and cultural industries are at risk.
We hear economists and elected officials touting that the recession has ended and yet we all know far too many people still out of work, and for those of us in the arts, we know of too many organizations that have filed for bankruptcy or have never recovered from the recession. Its important to carefully read through the hype and honestly determine the status of the arts, and when we do, what we see is a landscape that is less rosy than the one painted by economists.
