Arts Management in turbulent times
Author: Milena Dragicevic-Sesic, Sanjin Dragojevic
Description: This book by two prominent cultural experts assesses the dramatic period of change affecting the cultural sector in Central, Eastern and South East Europe since the 1990s, and points the way towards greater organisational stability and operational success in arts management within these regions.
The fundamental shift from authoritarian state socialism towards market economics and European Union membership has led to an array of challenges and opportunities for the societies of the countries concerned and the arts managers working within them. If they are to shape and develop cultural life in their respective countries (the book argues), both public and independent arts organisations need to be able to rely on strong organisational structures and sufficient management capacities. For this reason, strategic planning and increased proficiency in organisational development and management become key factors. Such planning and proficiency assist cultural organisations in exceptionally difficult environments to master successfully the many – often daunting – challenges they face.
This remarkable new book combines various contemporary approaches to arts management (both Western and Eastern European), highlighting practice-based management tools and unprecedented adaptations of existing theory, along with hands-on solutions developed for arts managers working internationally and in turbulent contexts.
This book is informed by the wide-ranging expertise of its two authors. In writing it, Milena Dragicevic-Sesic and Sanjin Dragojevic (leading figures in arts management theory, based in the universities of Belgrade and Zagreb respectively) have drawn on their academic expertise and longstanding experience of arts management training in South East Europe, Central and Eastern Europe, Central Asia, the Caucasus and other countries in and around Europe. Especially telling and valuable has been their impressive track record of bringing stability and success to arts organisations operating in turbulent environments.
This book was launched in the present of the two authors on the 2nd of December 2005 at the Boekman Foundation in cooperation with the European Cultural Foundation.
