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.

Users come to Tates website with different motivations, knowledges of art, and have different preferences for browsing information online. At Tate, we have undertaken research to understand, analyse and map these users needs and expectations. We have then used this analysis to consider how we can develop more effective ways for users to find and consume our content about art, as well as enabling them to create their own experiences and meanings.

Three-quarters of the audience in a football stadium does not understand the moves. And still, they all attend. An essay about the idea that classical music could also be suitable for the masses, as the problem is not because of musics complexity but through its elitist status.

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.

How many times in the last 12 months have you been to a concert? In Europe, 35% of you at least once, according to the findings of a recently published Eurobarometer survey on cultural access and participation.
Though, a ballet, a dance or an opera have been visited by 18%.
These findings raise the suspicion that concert and opera are losing audience. Lack of interest, lack of time and expense were supposed to be the main barriers to participation in cultural activities. It's time for us to take a closer look at the field of music education: Out now our current newsletter no. 119.

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.
