Where good connections are more important than artistic quality. The cultural sector in Mexico

In a new series, our correspondent Lisa Harborth will introduce forward-looking projects, talk to visionary arts leaders and deliver insights into the status quo of the arts sector and cultural management in Central America. For this first interview she talked to Aaron Hernandez Farfan, a Mexican actor and cultural manager. Together with his company Agua Quemada Creatividad he visualizes problems affecting the Mexican society, such as violence and injustice. With Lisa, he talked about the cultural system in Mexico, how politics influence it and which challenges affect the work as an artist in Mexico.

Arts Management Education: “We need to unlearn the ways in which we learned in the past”

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.

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.

Conference review: ENCATC Annual Conference on Cultural Management Education in Risk Societies

The 24th ENCATC Annual Conference "Cultural Management Education in Risk Societies - Towards a Paradigm and Policy Shift?!” took place in Valencia, Spain, from 5–7 October, 2016. The event brought together about 160 academics, researchers and professionals from the cultural sector, policy makers, artists and students from over 30 countries. And with a more focused and application oriented program their debates about the new paradigm needed for cultural management and policy to face today’s risk societies could have in fact been very fruitful and inspiring.

Cultural Management at the National School of Drama in New Delhi

In my course on cultural management at the National School of Drama (NSD) in New Delhi, I cover the topic of crowdfunding. A prime example for how it is for a Western lecturer to teach in India: On the one hand, one cannot presume many of the things that Western students would naturally know about. On the other hand, there is a wide range of cultural-managerial knowledge and skills, passed down in part through the generations under different labels, different names or simply without any special designation. At the same time, the work in a country like India is by no means any more exotic as in Europe.

The Open Society Institute Assistance Foundation in Tajikistan is about to launch a new MA program in Arts Management in Dushanbe, in partnership with four local universities. This will be the first program of that kind in the region of Central Asia. The program needs a solid backup by methodological materials on diverse subject matters. Therefore the coordinators plan to open a Resource Centre for Arts Management (both online and offline), to be managed by the renowned nonprofit organization Dushanbe Art Ground.Thus, they kindly ask all for donations of materials to the new center – publications, books, documents and so on.

Review of the International Artists Management Association Conference 2016

The IAMA – International Artists Management Association - meetings twice a year are a firm date in many artist manager’s diaries. The first one of this year took place in Utrecht, Holland April 7-9, 2016, and attracted over 400 delegates with the motto “Shake it off”. This could be interpreted in various ways – shake off the depressive mood that has become so prevalent when talking about classical music or shake off the old ways of doing business and take active steps in new directions. Both interpretations were equally valid within the context of the discussions.

Culture and Collaboration: How the First Edition of the Online Course Managing the Arts Created a Global Community of Cultural Managers

The worldwide demand for qualified personnel in cultural institutions is great, yet the opportunities for advanced training in the area of cultural management are limited. For that reason, Goethe-Institut started in 2015 its international MOOC “Managing the Arts” that was especially developed for cultural managers. Now it announced the second edition of the online-course. This review from our Arts Management Newsletter No 122 may give you some impressions of the first round. The new one will have the focus “Cultural Organizations in Transition”. It takes up the question of how cultural institutions can make use of technological, cultural and economic processes of change for their own work. Chris Dercon will guide the participants through video lectures and case studies of cultural institutions in Bangkok, Berlin, Budapest and Lagos. Cultural managers and those interested in cultural work can register here for the 2016 free online course from now on until 13 April.
