Cultural Manager and the Global Citizenship
Author: Constance DeVereaux, Pekka Vartiainen
Description: Within the social, political, and economic realities of our century, globalization is a constant; its effects both wide-reaching and profound. Depending on perspective, globalization has been used - in the extreme – both to praise the processes by which the world can become a world village; characterized by tolerance and respect for all cultures, and to curse those that inch us closer to the brink of ultra capitalism in a world of drab homogenization. Whether we are at the extremes, or somewhere in between, globalization and its implications for the arts and for culture, is something with which to contend.
In April 2007 specialists in cultural management met for two days in Helsinki to talk about globalization and the cultural field. For the cultural worker, is global citizenship a role to be taken or not? Is it an opportunity for artists and cultural workers that will lead to diversity and the flourishing of culture, or an insurmountable challenge? What are the risks, to cultural managers, in embracing new values, either those associated with globalization, or those that are opposed? These questions and many more fuelled the discussion and debate. This book provides a report of the proceedings with commentary by the editors.
Of value to practitioners, students, educators, and researchers, The Cultural Manager as Global Citizen provides a point of departure for thought, discussion, and reflection concerning many of the key questions presently confronting the field.
