Arts Management Quarterly
No 129: Cultural Inequalities
Globalisation heavily affects the daily work of arts managers around the globe in both positive and negative ways. But although intercultural understanding currently may seem to be more difficult than ever before and some voices are still absent, new narratives enter the stage that can help arts managers to meet current challenges and their supra-regional impacts. This issue of Arts Management Quarterly on "Cultural Inequalities" raises the curtain for these narratives. It is the result of a stimulating cooperation with the network Brokering Intercultural Exchange. The articles present insights into the barriers for intercultural understanding and collaboration among arts managers.
The network Brokering Intercultural Exchange seeks to understand the role of arts managers as intercultural brokers in appreciating and recognising the different perspectives and experiences in the context of globalisation, internationalisation and migration. We are very proud to present the insights their work has revealed in this issue. With it, we want to show that narratives and worldviews from outside the Western hemisphere can not only help arts managers in disadvantaged regions to meet the challenges caused by current conflicts, social crises and migration. We hope that it will give you some guidance on how you as arts managers can influence policies and overcome unconscious assumptions and habits, and inspire you to start open and fruitful discussions and cooperation with colleagues from around the world.
