„The best way to predict the future is to invent it“. MIT’s Senseable City Lab

The latest issue of Arts Management Quarterly sheds light on the relationship between the arts sector and urban development. Feasible visions for the city of the future are also the Senseable City Lab's main topic. The SCL is one of the interdisciplinary research and transfer centers affiliated at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. We talked with Prof. Dr. Carlo Ratti, founder and director, about how the SCL merges modern research and creativity in applicable developments.

Arts Management Quarterly No 127: Culture and Urban Development

The impact of the arts sector on urban development is very heterogeneous. The latest version of the two most important international roadmaps on this topic, United Nation’s New Urban Agenda and the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, acknowledge arts and culture as facilitators in fields such as social cohesion, education, or well-being. But to implement these effects into urban development road maps, the patterns and demands of local cultural infrastructures first have to be specified. Such basic work is the perfect starting point for arts professionals and artists to become part of comprehensive urban planning processes. Issue No 127 of Arts Management Quarterly sheds light on the impact that arts and culture can have on urban development. With it, we hope to inspire you to dive deeper into urban trends and to develop visions for the city of the future.

“There are no universal formulas.” How intercontinental experiences can enrich the profession of arts management

Emilio Piñango studied dance, arts management and arts education at universities in Venezuela and Spain. He worked as performing arts manager for the Ministry of Culture Venezuela and just started a PhD program in Arts at the Sorbonne University, France. Based on this manifold background, we talked to him about cultural policies and audience development for the performing arts. And as this interview is part of our series on cultural managers in Central and South America, he shared with us his experiences on the differences of studying arts management in Venezuela and Europe, and how the respective knowledge can be transferred to another region of the world.

New Places + Spaces + Faces. A review of the first American Association of Arts Administration Educators (AAAE) Conference on European ground

The 36th Annual AAAE conference was hosted by Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh between May 31st and June 2nd 2017 and was therefore a new place for the Association that met outside the USA for the first time. The fact, that the conference took place in Europe, surely resulted in several new faces. One third of the participants were so-called first timers (assumedly several of them Europeans who took advantage of not having to travel that far).

How Globalization affects Arts Managers

This research seeks to develop greater understanding of the impacts of globalization, digitalization, and (im)migration on the work of arts managers and arts management researchers. Different from studies that focus specifically on those who work exclusively in international contexts, this paper aims to present current research based on an international empirical study of arts managers who do not necessarily cross borders for their work and who would in most cases not even consider their work international as such. The findings are a brief excerpt of the results of an online survey in October and November 2015 among 352 arts managers in 46 countries. It dealt inter alia with the question how globalization affects the day-to-day work of arts managers and how they deal with the challenges globalization imposes on them.

Arts management courses to empower local artists in Mexico-City

For this interview, our correspondent Lisa Harborth talked to Marcela Jiménez López, the Subdirector of Mexico City’s program Small Cultural Enterprises. It was started ten years ago to support local artists in building up their own enterprises. The program teaches general knowledge in arts management and supports artists in building up their own enterprises. Small Cultural Enterprises thereby compensates the lack of management education during artistic studies in university. In 2016 alone, over 250 artists participated in the program.

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?

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.
