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.
