Research Results on the Work Routines of Arts/ Cultural Managers in International Contexts

This article presents the results of a research on the opinions of arts/ cultural managers around the world regarding their profession, working conditions, current challenges, required competencies, and training opportunities. From a Western perspective it seems like cultural management is well established as a profession and as an academic discipline with a profound body of knowledge and strategies that seem to be similar all over the world. Moreover, due to an increasing amount of cultural cooperation beyond borders, working practises in arts and cultural management seem to become universal. But is cultural management getting harmonized due to cultural globalization? Or are concepts and practices of cultural management more influenced by the specific national or regional conditions?

Research on the situation of workplace bullying in the cultural sector

Anne-Marie Quigg, author of Bullying in the Arts and The Handbook of Dealing with Workplace Bullying, and her co-author Piers Jackson are asking for feedback from people who have experienced workplace bullying in the cultural sector, how it has affected them and how, if at all, they managed to deal with it. To their knowledge there has been no further research on the subject in the sector since the publication of Anne-Marie's first book in 2011. It thus would be helpful to get an update on what may, or may not, have changed.

Cultural and Creative Industries Fuel Global Economy and Provide 29.5 million Jobs Worldwide

With revenues of US$2,250 billion, Cultural and Creative Industries account for 3% of world GDP and employ 29.5 million people (1% of the world’s active population). Cultural and Creative Industries (CCI) revenues exceed those of telecom services and employ more people than the car industry of Europe, Japan and the USA combined (29.5 million vs. 25 million). This major contribution of CCI to the global economy is explained in a new study, jointly presented by the International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers (CISAC) and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) at UNESCO’s headquarters in Paris, France, and published by EY (formerly Ernst & Young).

Nesta and CCI: Taking the Creative Economy Seriously. How to bolster the status of the creative industries as a serious economic force

While prepairing our next AMN newsletter about new developments and research in Cultural Entrepreneurship, we came across this article by Hasan Bakhshi, who is founding member of the British government’s Creative Industries Council, director for Creative Economy in Policy & Research at Nesta's, deviser of the Digital R&D Fund for the Arts in England, Scotland and Wales and much more. In 2013, he wrote a contribution for us about "Nesta and CCI: Taking the Creative Economy Seriously. How to bolster the status of the creative industries as a serious economic force" that hasn't lost any of it's relevance and can be transferred to a lot of countries at least in the western world. At Nesta's, he has also been one of the three makers of the Nesta/CCI study „A Dynamic Mapping of the UK's Creative Industries“. His "Manifesto for the Creative Industries" proposes ten system recommendations for a fresh policy that establishes the creative industries as a serious economic force throughout Europe and beyond.
