CfP: Creative Disruption in the Arts. Politics, Entrepreneurship, and Social Impact

The International Conference of Social Theory, Politics and the Arts (STP&A) is an interdisciplinary gathering of researchers, policy-makers and practitioners that explores key trends, practices and policy issues affecting the arts around the world. It aims to foster a cross-cultural dialogue focusing on contemporary issues in arts and culture. The theme for the 2017 STP&A conference 2017 is built around the multiple disruptive roles of the arts in foreseeing and responding to political dysfunction, in fostering Schumpeterian entrepreneurial advancement, and in reflecting the need for and enabling the attainment of positive social change. Deadline for proposal submission is 15 May 2017.

In this interview, Alan Salzenstein (De Paul University, Chicago) and Martin Zierold (Karlshochschule International University, Karlsruhe) talk about the relevance of teaching “transformation skills” to arts management students. It is based on a joint talk on this topic that they held during the 10th annual conference of the German Association for Arts Management in Weimar in January.

Arts Management Quarterly No 126: Best-of the Young Art Journalism Awards 2016

What notion of their future job do young arts managers have? What visions of the arts sector are driving them? And what are the issues they want to find new solutions for? These are important questions that show how the arts sector can and should develop to be ready for future challenges and the changing needs of their audience. For that reason, we decided that with this issue of Arts Management Quarterly we wanted to give those among the participants of the first Young Arts Journalism Awards (YAJA) - a project powered by Art News Portal, fostering online journalism among journalism and creative art students worldwide - who dedicated their articles to the field of arts management the chance to get a word in edgeways.

Are arts managers their own enemy when it comes to intercultural development? Insights from the #interculturalmanagers workshop

This first workshop of the new network “Cultural Managers as Intercultural Brokers” took place 15-17 January 2017 at Heilbronn University, Germany. Its highly renowned international participants examined the role that arts and cultural managers can play in handling the challenges of globalisation. And they discussed the question how arts management is influenced by certain worldviews and how this in turn influences the fulfilment of its tasks in international contexts, and thereby shed light on the sometimes self-inflicted barriers for fostering intercultural understanding.

Approaching an Understanding of Arts and Cultural Managers as Intercultural Brokers

Our current context of internationalisation, globalisation, and the increasing global migration presents challenges and opportunities for the arts and cultural sector. With creative and aesthetic expressions inherently reflective of cultural ideas, knowledge and values, arts and cultural managers have a significant role to play in directing, administering and mediating intercultural understanding. This refers to the ability to know, accept, value, and empathise with alternative perspectives and perceptions of the world.

The A to Z of Arts Management - Upward Management

For years I’ve been an arts manager, an arts board member and an occasional arts management academic. And although there are some great arts management books to both learn from and teach with, they only seldom combine theory and practice, insights of success and failure, and story telling to help people understand how to do their job better. In this series, I introduce a selection of neglected aspects and competencies from my book “The A to Z of Arts Management”. This final chapter is about how leaders in the arts can upwardly manage stakeholders with a powerful impact on their work, and enable staff to upwardly manage their bosses as well.
