Despite, or maybe because of global economic challenges, with greater implications in Europe and North America, the 2012 International Fundraising Congress held in the Netherlands this October was the most successful ever. First timers and old hands left the NH Leeuwenhorst Hotel with much to think about. With so many non-profits trying to do more and better with less money, many sessions were oversubscribed and the general feeling was overwhelmingly positive about the quality of the presentations.
Social media was not only a popular subject at the Congress, but many delegates were also tweeting from sessions, commenting and sharing their thoughts and the lessons they were learning. The knowledge sharing tradition in the non-profit sector has been taken one step further.
Kevin De Coninck, the Policy and Development Officer for the Dutch Language Union commented: I'm here for the first time at the IFC and it was really interesting to see the concrete fundraising tips. All in all it was reassuring that we're doing the right thing and it was nice to hear all the stories of the other participants.

This study draws on the experiential approach and has two main goals: to explore the different dimensions of the museum experience regardless of whether it is mediated by mediation devices (e.g., audio guides, interactive terminals, SmartPhones, tablets, augmented reality), and to identify the impact of such devices on visitors behavioural intentions. The authors conduct a qualitative and exploratory investigation to address the following questions: Does the development of such devices affect both experience dimensions and the audiences behavioural intentions? Which components of a museum visit are concerned?

Ten years ago Ted Cantle founded the idea of community cohesion and this concept began to transform the way we think about race and diversity in the UK and has been copied and adopted by many other countries, especially through the idea of intercultural dialogue. Despite the growth of the Far Right and continual opposition to migration, 85% of people in England now say that they now get on well with people from other backgrounds testimony to the great work done on cohesion at the community level.
But the ghost of multiculturalism hangs over progressive debates. And the new phase of super diversity created by globalisation and the transnational movement of people and communications on a new scale, demands a new approach. All modern societies are now multicultural and destined to become more so yet the ideology of multiculturalism cannot mediate the changes which people both enjoy and fear. In his new book, Ted Cantle expounds the idea of interculturalism which recognises the interdependence of people and their countries and suggests that different forms of integration are now necessary to foster an inter-connectedness in which race will no longer play a significant part and be eclipsed by broader ideas about difference and otherness.

The Museums Associations 2012 survey into cuts to museum services has laid bare the devastating impact that budget reductions are continuing to have across the UK. Out of 114 museum services and individual institutions that responded, 51% reported a cut to their budgets and almost a quarter have been forced to reduce public access by closing whole sites or parts of sites permanently or temporarily. 11% have closed whole sites permanently. 42% of respondents said there have been cuts to staff, with almost a fifth saying staffing levels were down 25% or more. Of the respondents that have experienced cuts in 2011 and 2012, over a third have seen a cumulative reduction of more than 35%.

Like most museums, only a small part of the Powerhouse Museum collection in Sydney is exhibited at any one time. About 50,000 objects are stored at Castle Hill. Castle Hill is the Powerhouse Museums off-site collection storage facility. A new museum visitor experience model and program to increase public access to the Powerhouses Collection is being developed to officially open at the Castle Hill site in March 2007.
The nature of the site as a storage facility and the behind the scenes appeal of the visitor offering require a different approach to the traditional museum visitor experience that captures the rawness, directness and uniqueness of the visitors engagement with the site, the Collection and the objects.

The City of Flows is connected to global networks. What does this mean for todays cities? How do global networks manifest themselves in everyday life? And how are limited analog spaces reflected in the potentially unlimited realm of the virtual?
Just as industrial society demolished medieval city walls, the information society is transcending geographical limitations. Binary code can create virtual realities, and with them free spaces which stand in contrast to the socio-spatial limits of physical locations. Fewer and fewer specific places are required to fulfil specific functions or provide services. At the same time, life for most city dwellers remains determined by infrastructure and the qualities and barriers of the physical.
With its global economy, the information society will encroach deep into our cities (Manuel Castells)

The National Endowment for the Arts Research & Analysis staff would like to share with you Research Note #106, An Average Day in the Arts: State Participation Patterns from the American Time Use Survey for 2006-2010.
Using data from the U.S. Department of Labors Bureau of Labor Statistics American Time Use Survey (ATUS), this Note examines state-level arts participation on an average day. Although the ATUS methodology generally bars the patent ranking of states by arts participation rates, certain state patterns emerge.
For example, Virginia, Maryland, Illinois, New York, and Pennsylvania place highly in performing arts attendanceon an average day, 1 percent of residents in each of these states attend performing arts events. Museum attendance is comparatively high in Massachusetts and Maryland, along with Michigan, Virginia, and New York. On any given day, 18,000 Massachusetts residents visit museums.

All the worlds a crises? The real estate bubble, government depts, economic weakness and/or bank runs ... Many people are cheesed of those bad news. Is the art sector the last paradise? Yes and no. Yes, because the arts and creative sector is a value on its own, and a driving force for the growth of regions and countries. No, because many cultural institutions come under economic pressure so far.
In this scenario, isnt it time to give impulses for the future? We will do so with our special "Positive Impulses" this month. Even from Greece, where last month at the 3rd Kufstein Summer School young professionals worked on in- novation strategies in the arts. The aim was to reflect about the role of arts management within an economic crisis like now in, but not limited to Greece. We publish the summary paper exclusively in this newsletter issue.

The study has involved the analysis of 28 case studies from 12 different member states, representing a diverse sample of approaches, organisations, degree of formalisation, geographic locations and target publics, among others.

KUHNYA has introduced the participants of the course Cultural Entrepreneurship' in Tomsk to several cultural entrepreneurs in Siberia. They offered their know-how to the younger generation with cultural initiatives in Novosibirsk, Kemerovo and Tomsk.
When you enter Tomsk the first thing that strikes you is an enormous billboard right opposite the building of the City Administration on Lenin Prospekt. No political slogans but Tom Waits. It is the street advertising of "Underground" a jazz café, restaurant and music store opened by Oleg Usenko in 2004. This nice piece of informal culture has of course provoked a new name for Tomsk : Tomsk Waitsk. Since inviting jazz musicians to Siberia is too expensive for one private night club, Oleg and his partners arrange Siberian tours of famous jazz bands to Novosibirsk and Krasnoyarsk. They have toured Mark Terner, Igor Bril, Daniel Kramer and Vladimir Chekassin.
